    Compensation for suffering leg crush injuries


    Leg crush injuries are extremely dangerous; they can lead to all sorts of injuries and complications and as such are considered as very severe accidents. These injuries usually occur as the result of the injured party being trapped between two heavy objects in an accident.

    The treatment required by the injured party very much depends on the severity of their injuries, however, it can be extensive. Accidents of this nature can be a life-changing event, often leading to the victim having to change their lifestyle and potentially even career, particularly if they suffer from mobility issues as a result.

Furthermore, being the caring understanding company we are, we appreciate the devastating impact this kind of injury can have on your life, which means we work hard to help you get the level of compensation you deserve.

    Causes of leg crush injuries

    Leg crush injuries are usually the result of some kind of industrial accident or sometimes a road collision. This can include, but is not limited to:

    • Car and motor accidents, such as where a driver or passenger is trapped in a car or a pedestrian is hit by a vehicle. Whether you are able to claim very much depends on whether you were to blame for the accident, if someone else is to be found at fault you will most likely be able to claim
    • Work accidents, such as when workers have to use large and heavy machinery that can crush hands, arms and legs. These accidents can be the result of the machinery not working effectively or not being well-maintained, or workers not being properly trained on how to use the equipment
