About crush injuries
Accidents where someone becomes trapped or crushed are responsible for a significant number of work-related injuries each year. The consequences of these accidents can be devastating causing debilitating and long-term effects, requiring specialist medical care and rehabilitation as well as lengthy recovery periods and subsequent loss of earnings.
We have helped thousands of clients to pursue compensation for work-related accidents including those that have resulted in crush injuries caused by:
- Falling objects
Falling objects can cause considerable harm when falling from a height and items falling from cherry picker baskets, scaffolding platforms or high shelving for example can all result in crush injuries.
Crush injuries can be caused by vehicles overturning, collisions or accidents where the operator becomes trapped between the vehicle basket or cabin and a fixed structure.
- Industrial machinery and equipment
Construction, agriculture and manufacturing are just some of the industries where crush injuries can occur due to the machinery and equipment used.
Fingers can become trapped, safety guards on tools may be missing or heavy machinery can overturn. Crush injuries can affect everything from fingers and toes to the limbs, torso, spine and head, potentially resulting in amputation, disability, paralysis or even fatality.
Accidents frequently occur in the workplace where the correct health and safety regulations are not adhered to. If you have been hurt whilst at work you need to take specialist legal advice to find out more about your entitlement.
Your right’s at work
It is your employer’s responsibility to keep you safe at work and minimise any risk of an accident or injury. Their obligations include provision of a safe working environment, adequate protective clothing, equipment that is regularly inspected and serviced and adequate training for all members of staff.
Their failure to comply with the 1974 Health & Safety Act means that they are operating outside of the law and you can pursue a compensation claim. Your entitlement will cover medical treatment and rehabilitation, loss of earnings and additional expenses incurred as a result of your accident and injuries.
You may be feeling uncertain and anxious about pursuing legal action against your employer and worry how this might impact on your job and its security. The fact of the matter is that it is against the law for your employer to make you redundant, to make life difficult for you at work or to make you want to leave your role as a result of your claim.
You are fully protected by the law and we can provide advice on all aspects of employment law. Your employer will have employer’s liability insurance to cover any compensation claims made against them so they won’t be impacted personally by your claim.
About compensation claims
To be eligible for compensation your accident must have occurred in the past three years and have been caused in full or in part by somebody else. Your final pay-out will be dependent on the severity of your injuries, whether they are permanent or short-term and will consider the financial impact the accident has had on you.
Your compensation is owed to you for the pain and trauma you have experienced and to aid your recovery to put you back in the situation you were in before the accident.
It is there to provide access to:
- Leading medical treatments including any surgery that may be required and rehabilitation therapy.
- Private counselling sessions to help support your mental well-being and help you cope with the emotional load of your injury.
- Any specialist equipment that may be required for your recovery or independence.
- Adaptations that may be required to you home and vehicle.
Your compensation is also there to cover:
- Loss of earnings both now and in the future as a result of your accident
- Additional expenses incurred such as travel to and from medical appointments.
Whether you injury is relatively minor and you are able to return to work fairly quickly, or whether you have suffered major, life-changing injuries you’re entitled to compensation and we can help to secure it for you.
