Understanding Crush Injuries

Crush injuries, characterized by the compression of the body or its parts between objects or surfaces, can result in severe, life-altering, or fatal consequences.

These injuries impact your ability to earn and significantly diminish your overall quality of life. In cases where negligence or defective products lead to crush injuries, obtaining the rightful financial compensation becomes crucial.

This compensation can alleviate your burdens, allowing you to concentrate on recovering your health and rebuilding your life.

Medically defined as injuries caused by force or pressure applied to a body part, crush injuries typically occur when a part of the body is squeezed between two heavy objects.

Common causes of crush injuries include:

  • Extensive Machine Injuries: Construction sites, farms, and road work, among other activities, involve heavy machinery capable of causing severe crush injuries. If not operated carefully, bobcats, steam rollers, forklifts, and similar equipment are common culprits.
  • Falling Objects: In urban areas, people working in skyscrapers, apartment buildings, or large offices risk crush injuries due to falling objects during construction or cleaning activities.
  • Auto Accidents: Whether you are a driver, passenger, or pedestrian, the risk of crush injuries is present in and around vehicles, making auto accidents a common cause of severe crushing injuries.
  • Defective Products: Structural collapses resulting from faulty construction products can lead to crushing injuries, making victims eligible for compensation.
  • Natural Disasters: Events like hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes can cause crush injuries to numerous individuals in their vicinity.
  • Construction Accidents: The inherent risk of crushing injuries is high in construction due to the movement and construction of large structures. Despite safety guidelines, a simple mistake on a job site can lead to a lifetime of pain, disabilities, or even death.

While the severity of crush injuries varies, typical complications and outcomes include:

Compartment syndrome (increased pressure causing muscle, nerve, and tissue damage)

  • Bone fractures
  • Nerve injuries
  • Brain damage
  • Bleeding (internally and externally)
  • Cuts
  • Infections
  • Bruising
  • Destruction of limbs, digits, and body parts

  • Current medical costs
  • Long-term and future medical costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Disability damages
  • Vehicle and home alterations
  • Wrongful death
  • Loss of consortium (in case of a loved one’s death)
