Get a Crushing Injury Lawyer For You and Your Family
Crushing injuries transpire when a body or parts of a body are compressed by an object. Crushing injuries also transpire when a body or parts of a body are compressed between two or more surfaces. Crush injuries are prevalent in motor vehicle accidents, construction accidents, heavy equipment accidents, and falls from heights. The severity of a crushing injury namely depends on the amount of forceful impact on the body and the volume of body surface impacted. For example, the force of a plaster wall descending on your leg is less than the force of stone or brick wall falling on your leg. Furthermore, a wall falling on your entire body will result in more injuries than a wall that only falls on your leg.
Why a Crushing Injury Lawyer is Critical for Recovery
Crushing injuries range from mild to severe. Some crushing cases involve light bruising, mild concussions or broken bones, to severe paralysis and traumatic brain injuries. Other typical crushing injuries include nerve and muscle damage, internal bleeding, damaged to internal organs, and spinal cord injuries. In very sad cases, severely crushed limbs often require amputation. Regrettably, a high number of crushing injuries result in deaths and in those unfortunate and devastatingly sad cases an experienced crushing injury lawyer is a necessity.
