What Are Crush Injuries?
Crush injuries are some of the most severe types of injury that a person can experience. These occur when a person’s body is pinned between two objects. These commonly result in permanent damage and can even prove fatal in the most extreme circumstances. Cuts, ligament damage, bruises, and amputations are all possible results of a crush injury. Auto accidents are a common cause, but these injuries can also occur in an unsafe workplace, especially if large machinery is involved. Statistics show that over 120K workers are involved in this type of incident every year, so it’s important to be aware of what to expect from a physical and legal vantage point in the event that you suffer this debilitating injury.
Why Consult a Personal Injury Lawyer?
If you or a loved one is the victim of this type of injury, it is extremely important that you consult with a personal injury or workers’ compensation lawyer to represent your interests. These cases are generally high profile because of the severe nature of the injury, and in order to obtain the highest payment amount possible, you’ll want an experienced legal professional advocating on your behalf. The majority of these cases are settled long before a trial occurs, but that doesn’t mean that you’re guaranteed to receive the best settlement. These negotiations are extremely stressful, especially following a potentially life changing injury, and by employing the services of a trained legal expert, you give yourself the best possible odds of receiving the compensation you truly deserve. In addition to expensive medical bills and loss of income, there’s also pain and suffering to consider, which can be more difficult to prove in some cases. A personal injury lawyer will fight to ensure that every aspect of your situation is leveraged and communicated throughout the entirety of the legal process.
