A case series of abdominal wall hernia following blunt injury is essential for the understanding of its varied clinical presentation. The purpose of this paper is to emphasise on the fact that abdominal wall hernia is seemingly benign yet completely treatable condition and can be easily missed without proper clinical examination. A timely intervention with proper intraoperative assessment and decision making is needed. Immediate primary tissue repair is the preferred mode of management. Laparoscopic intervention in these scenarios is possible with better knowledge of the mechanism of injury and probable outcomes.
