Personal Injury Attorney : Crush Injury Cases
Construction sites are common grounds for crush injuries. Let the attorneys at our Law Office help with your construction site crush injury case.
Every year thousands of construction workers sustain crush injuries. A crush injury occurs when a high degree of pressure or force is applied to a workers’ body part. As heavy machinery becomes more common on work sites, so too will the number of crush injuries. Crush injuries are numerous and varied. From minor fractures to major trauma, crush injuries affect construction site workers each year.
Most workplace crush injuries are minor and result in bruising or no injury at all. However, when sufficient force is applied fractures, compartment syndrome, loss of limbs, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, asphyxiation, paralysis and death are common. Often times, workers that suffer severe crush injuries are trapped during the incident, this may result in severe psychological trauma for the injured employee.
The most common crush injuries occur during the cleaning and maintenance of equipment, when objects are fall or are dropped from heights, or when other employees negligently operate heavy machinery.
Regardless of how the accident occurs, your employer owes you the duty to provide you with a safe working environment. A safe working environment includes instituting rules and regulations regarding the use and maintenance of heavy equipment in an effort to prevent crush injuries. Employers can reduce risk by using nets and other safety equipment to ensure that tools and supplies are not accidentally dropped on employees.
