Did you know that crush injuries can be amongst the most serious injuries employees can sustain at work? Those working in the manufacturing, agricultural and construction industries are the most likely to sustain crush injuries at work, usually because they are working with heavy machinery with moving parts, or heavy industrial vehicles.
Crush injuries can change your life, stripping you of your independence and your ability to work. They can also leave you suffering from chronic pain and in need of ongoing medical treatment – your mobility may be affected and even your personality, if you’ve suffered a head injury.
That’s why Accident Advice Helpline recommends you get in touch with our expert personal injury advisers within three years of your accident, to find out whether you could make a claim for personal injury compensation. It’s free to call us, so what do you have to lose?
Serious crush injuries
It may be that you’ve been lucky enough to escape an industrial or agricultural accident with minor injuries, but if you’ve sustained serious crush injuries at work, you could be affected by any of the following:
- Loss of a limb through amputation
- Head injuries including brain injury
- Permanent disability
- Punctured lung, cracked ribs and other life-threatening injuries
- Complex or compound fractures which could affect mobility
