Crush Injury Claims

Crush Injury Claims

Suffered a crush injury due to someone else’s negligence? Well, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

A crush injury is sustained when a part of the body is caught between two objects that are being pushed together by high pressure. Crush injuries often result in fractures, bruising and lacerations. The most common causes of crush injuries are usually sought through Road Traffic Accidents and Slip Accidents but there are also varying degrees of crush injuries, from slamming a finger in a door to limbs being trapped or crushed for an extended period of time.

We specialise in providing legal help and support for people who have suffered crush injuries as a result of their accident.

We will help you make the right decision with your Crush Injury Claim and secure the compensation you deserve. Furthermore, your case will be dealt with in a strictly professional and confidential manor. Rest assured, once we’ve processed your claim, win, lose or draw you will not pay a penny for our legal fees.

We will take your case on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis and you will receive 100% of the compensation.

The majority of crush injuries are obtained in the workplace. Faults in your workplace’s health and safety regulations, can sometimes cause fingers to be crushed in doors etc, crushes in forklifts, and even crushes that cause broken bones, brain injury, and in worst cases, even amputation.

If you have been crushed in the workplace due to the health and safety standards not being met, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation against your employer. Many crush injuries lead to the victim being unable to work, resulting in time off work and therefore loss of earnings. In some more serious cases, crush injuries can also lead to the victim having to refrain from work permanently. This not only affects the sufferer, but also the sufferer’s family, and massively impacts their lives financially. Making a compensation claim could help out financially if time off work is needed in your case.

Examples of crush injuries where you may be entitled to a compensation payout include:

  • Being run over as a pedestrian
  • Crush injuries at work from machinery
  • Crush injuries from manual handling
  • Crush injuries caused by doors or hatchets.

The most severe crush injury cases, such as a crush injury leading to the loss of one hand, can entitle you to receive up to £78,000 in compensation, with straightforward hand or toe crush injuries possible awarding you with up to £7,000.
