What Is a Crush Injury?

A crush injury is a type of injury that occurs when a part of the body is compressed between two heavy objects, or when a body part is trapped and compressed. This can result in severe damage to muscles, bones, and soft tissues, and can also cause internal injuries.

Crush injuries can occur in a variety of situations, including:

The severity of a crush injury can range from minor bruises to severe fractures, organ damage, and even death. It is important to seek medical attention immediately if you or a loved one have experienced a crush injury, as early treatment can greatly improve the chances of a full recovery.

The Types of Compensation Available for Crush Injuries

If you have suffered a crush injury, you may be entitled to compensation for the physical, emotional, and financial impacts of the injury.

The types of compensation available will depend on the severity of the injury, the circumstances in which it occurred, and the impact it has had on your life. Typically, the compensation you receive will be able to cover a range of expenses, such as medical bills, loss of earnings, and the cost of ongoing care and rehabilitation. In some cases, compensation may also be available for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and other non-financial losses.

An experienced personal injury solicitor at OH Parsons can help you understand the types of compensation you may be eligible for, and guide you through the claims process to help you receive the maximum amount of compensation possible.

Making a Crush Injury Compensation Claim

If you haven’t made any kind of serious injury claim before, it is not uncommon for the process to seem overwhelming. But, with the right support and guidance, making a compensation claim can be straightforward and stress-free.

The first step in making a claim, of course, is to contact a personal injury solicitor who can specialise in crush injury claims. They will be able to assess your case and advise you on the likelihood of success and the amount of compensation you may be able to claim. Your solicitor will then guide you through the claims process, which will typically involve the following:

  • Gathering evidence: This will involve a thorough investigation to determine the original cause of your crush injury and other particulars of the case.
  • Negotiating with insurance companies and accessing medical records – our solicitors will take care of this for you.
  • Attending court if necessary: After determining the strength of your crush injury claim, should the responsible party refuse to accept liability, we will take legal action. However, most crush injury compensation claims are settled out of court.

Rest assured your solicitor will work tirelessly to help you achieve the best possible outcome for your case, so you can focus on your recovery and getting back to your normal life.
