How costly is a crush injury?

Arizona construction workers like you put yourself at risk every day due to the nature of the work you do. One big possible risk you may face are crush injuries. These injuries can have a profound impact on your health, ability to work, and financial situation.

Crush injuries can occur for many reasons. In the field of construction, some of the most typical causes include getting hit or run over by a vehicle, or being pinned between a vehicle and another hard surface. Additionally, falling equipment or building material that has not been properly secured can crush you. Typically, these incidents can be attributed to negligence or inattentiveness on the part of shift or area supervisors, or the drivers of the vehicles.

MedlinePlus takes a look at the injuries that can come from crush damage. This may include:

  • Compartment syndrome
  • Bone breaks and fractures
  • Bruising and internal bleeding
  • Nerve damage
  • Laceration
  • Infection

Almost every crush injury will be moderate to severe, and the severity can vary depending on how much pressure was applied and how long that pressure was applied. In many cases, after experiencing a crush injury, you will need to take time off of work to recover. Not only that, but you may be saddled with heavy hospital expenses as well. If the incident is severe enough, you could also incur costs for an ambulance ride, emergency medical treatment, and an extended hospital stay.

Because of these expenses, it is important to seek compensation for the damage you have suffered from. Consider contacting an attorney with experience in workers' compensation cases for more guidance while moving forward.
