Crush Injury To Body

A crush injury occurs when a part of the body receives a great deal of pressure of force, usually by being squeezed between two heavy objects. Crush injuries are common at construction sites, where heavy objects are moved around.

Crush injuries can affect a construction worker's hand, foot, or chest. A crush injury may be caused by a dropped containers, collapse of a roof or building, machine malfunction, a fallen boom crane, or equipment running over a hand or foot, a trench cave in, or a heavy machinery accident.

Crush injuries can have a wide range of serious effects, including fractures, internal injuries, head and brain injuries, and back injuries. Crush injuries are among the most serious and permanent injuries which an accident victim can suffer. Crush injuries can be catastrophic injuries.
