3 Common Causes of Crushing Injuries

Crushing injuries are some of the most serious injuries you can suffer. They are traumatic, life changing events that can lead to paralysis, amputation of limbs, and even death. Crushing injuries can occur anywhere in Charlotte or the rest of North Carolina. Whether you are injured in a car accident, on a construction site, at a sporting event, or for any other cause, a crushing injury could force you to change how you live.

Crush injuries on construction sites

The construction site where you work is all too dangerous. Even though there are safety policies and procedures in place, and you have personal protective equipment to wear, there’s no guarantee that an accident won’t happen. “Caught in/between” accidents are one of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s “Fatal Four,” but a fall could also lead to a life-altering crush injury.

A crush injury at work can cause you to miss time on the job, leading you to file a workers’ compensation claim so you can still pay the bills.

Car accidents are another leading cause of crushing injuries

People don’t like to think they will be hurt in a car crash, but sometimes they are unavoidable. Some of the most tragic car accidents lead to catastrophic injuries such as crushing injuries. They are commonly a result of:

  • Collisions involving multiple vehicles
  • Vehicle rollovers
  • Collisions with commercial trucks which do not have underride guards
  • High-speed accidents involving barriers, medians, and trees

Injuries on the job

Aside from suffering a crushing injury in a fall on a construction site, many crushing injury victims suffer their injuries in accidents on the job in other professions. Do you work in a warehouse, a manufacturing facility, a recycling facility, farm or factory where heavy machinery or large equipment is present? If so, you could wind up suffering a crushing injury. Many victims get their hands or arms stuck in presses, or get pinned between a large piece of machinery and the wall. Working near a forklift could lead to you being run over or crushed by the machine.

Were you injured in an accident on the job or in a car accident? There are ways in which you can seek compensation for the injuries suffered. Your first step is to call Warren & Kallianos, PLLC at 704-275-5593 or complete a contact form to schedule a free consultation with an experienced Charlotte personal injury attorney.
