    Compensation for crush injuries in a factory


    Factory work can be hot, messy and physically demanding in some cases. If you work with food products you might end up coming home smelling of various things – not all of them good! In any case you’ll be likely to put in a lot of hard work every day you spend in a factory, although it should be said this kind of work can be very involving and rewarding too.

    One thing you wouldn’t expect would be to go through crush injuries in a factory. Fortunately very few people will go through such an experience. However there are cases where something like this has occurred, and the reasons why can differ from one situation to another. In some cases professional lawyers have proven negligence on the part of the employer and been able to win compensation for their clients.

    Are crush injuries in a factory likely to be serious?

    Crush injuries do sound severe, and in many cases they have the potential to be. A lot would depend on which part of the body received the crush injuries. Obviously the torso is a vital area protecting many of the main organs. If severe crush injuries were suffered here, there could be significant danger to life.

    On the other hand crush injuries can also occur to the extremities. In these instances the potential for blood loss and perhaps even occasionally amputation might crop up.

    The reason why a certain accident might happen could vary. For example if the injured person had been doing things they knew they shouldn’t do, they might have been injured and it could have been their fault. Conversely someone else could have caused the accident, perhaps by flouting some of the health and safety rules that were in operation in the factory.

    Seeking treatment

    Obviously urgent medical treatment should always be provided whenever crush injuries in a factory occur. These injuries can potentially be very dangerous and be a hazard to life, as we have seen.

    In other cases there is a chance a person’s way of life could be jeopardised if the injuries mean they are unable to walk or do things the way they used to.

    Negligence can sometimes be the cause of crush injuries. If this is found to be true in your case you could make a no win, no fee claim to seek compensation for those injuries. Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 now.
