Hepatic abscess are rare, and can be a result of dental abscess, appendicitis, or diverticulitis too.
May be related to weakened immune system. Here is a link to x-ray pictures and medical information: http://emedicine.Medscape.Com/article/188802-overview.

In brief: Yes

Liver trauma usually results in some part (even if it is small) of the liver tissue dying.
Though the rest of the liver generally regenerates, if this dead liver tissue is exposed to enough bacteria, then you can get a hepatic abscess. This is very rare, even after major liver trauma.
