Crush injuries (a particular type of blunt force trauma injury resulting from the compression of body parts, or the entire body) are very traumatic injuries that have some of the most life-altering and permanent effects.
Crush Injury Causes
A crush injury can result from many other causes, however, most of the crush injuries we see are from work-related accidents. This means it does not matter who, if anyone, was at fault. The injured person is still entitled to money to compensate them for their losses. Aside from work-related accidents, some other types of crush injuries are:
- Car or Truck Accidents
- Construction Accident
- Defective Products
- Factory Accidents
- Farm Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Power Tool Accidents
Work-Related Crush Injuries
Workplaces can be very hazardous places where accidents can be prone to happen. All businesses have to comply with local and state Occupation Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations in order to maintain a safe work environment. Regardless of this, accidents still take place. Most work-related crush injury accidents are caused by falls at unsafe heights, the lack of safety equipment or improper instruction of how to use it, defective work equipment and general unsafe work conditions.
In ALL instances of work-related crush injuries your employer and possibly other parties are responsible for all damages incurred from the injury, which could include present and future medical expenses related to the injury, rehabilitation, emotional counseling, loss of wages (workers compensation) and mental anguish compensation. It is important that you contact The Kaufmann Law Offices as soon as possible after the accident, so that we may get started processing your claim on your behalf.
