That is why we choose to collaborate with respected personal injury lawyers who will do all they can to obtain the best outcome for your crush injury compensation claim.
What is a Crush Injury?
Crush injuries can occur in a variety of ways. Some of the most frequent examples include road traffic accidents, having limbs trapped in machinery, being caught up with uncontrolled livestock or crowds, and getting trapped under falling objects. Even something as seemingly insignificant as crushing a finger in a door can lead to amputation, which is why those in nurseries and schools should be fitted with safety devices to prevent them from slamming shut on children.
Crush injuries can cause:
- Nerve damage
- Excessive bleeding
- Cuts and broken bones
- Severe bruising and soft tissue damage
A case study of a crush injury claim featured an employee who had an accident at work. The worker’s hand became trapped after a piece came loose while he was carrying out routine maintenance. He was unable to work for four months due to his injury, which required both surgery and physiotherapy. Despite swift medical treatment, the victim suffered a lasting loss of movement and sensation in two fingers, all of which was taken into consideration when calculating compensation. He therefore received payment when his employer was found liable for not having adequate maintenance procedures.
Compensation Claims for Crush Injuries
It is important to seek legal advice as early as possible if you or a member of your family has suffered a crush injury. Not only is there a strict statutory time limit for making a personal injury claim, but a successful claim can also give you the money you need to avoid long NHS queues and access medical treatment privately.
Personal injury and accident at work compensation claims can take several months to process depending on the details surrounding your injury and the extent of the damage. Talking to The Compensation Experts will help you ascertain whether you have grounds to claim and, if so, what to do next.
