What Is a Crush Injury?
Crush injuries occur when a part of a person's body is caught and squeezed between two surfaces, such as a piece of heavy equipment and the ground. Crush injuries can result in bleeding, broken bones, nerve damage and other serious medical conditions.
A majority of crush injuries require specialized medical treatment and on-going physical therapy to achieve any level of recovery. For most victims, the future involves a lifetime of pain and limitations.
Whether your crush injury was due to a fall or was the result of impact with a crane, bulldozer or tractor, we can help. If your injury occurred on the job, you will be eligible for benefits through workers' compensation. Unfortunately, workers' compensation may not offer enough to fully cover your losses and doesn't account for the pain and suffering you've endured. You may be eligible to pursue a third-party liability claim to secure funds beyond what is available through workers' compensation.
During our investigation of your construction accident, we will seek to determine if a party, other than your employer, is liable for your injuries. The negligent actions of a subcontractor, equipment manufacturer or landowner may have played a role in what took place. If a third party is liable, we will strive to recover maximum compensation for your claim.
