Richmond Crushing Injury Lawyer

Sep 10, 2013 | Personal Injury

Crushing injuries can result from employees falling from heights, being hit by falling objects, defective or dangerous work equipment, unsafe work conditions, lack of safety equipment, violations of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and many more.

While a crushing injury can involve any type of accident in almost any situation, some of the most common types of crushing injuries happen in industrial, warehouse or factory settings and include:

  • Heavy machinery accidents
  • Motor vehicle rollovers
  • Building & motor vehicle roof collapses
  • Tractor trailer & truck accidents
  • Fork lift, crane & construction related accidents
  • Conveyor belt accidents.

Any employee whose job consists of working with or near any type of dangerous machinery with moving parts is at an increased risk of suffering a crushing injury in which arms, hands, legs, fingers, toes and other body parts could be entrapped or crushed. 

Treating Crushing Injuries

Treatment for crushing injuries varies greatly and is determined by the severity of the injury. Crushing injuries include broken bones, head injuries, neck and back injuries, loss of oxygen, internal injuries, severe bruising, lacerations, hemorrhaging, torn muscles and ligaments and much more.  Crushing injuries can also cause victims to bleed, develop infections and go into shock – each which carries its own risks.  Sadly, limbs involved in crushing injuries can often be permanently damaged and, in some cases, may require amputation and result in permanent disability.

Regardless of the type of injury sustained, crushing injuries often result in substantial medical bills, rehabilitation, the inability to work (short term, long term or even permanently) – as well as physical and emotional pain.  In these situations, it’s important to hire an experienced attorney to represent your interests so that you get the compensation for which you’re entitled to provide for your family.   Geoff McDonald & Associates is that firm.
