Crush Injury

Were You Seriously Injured In An Accident?

Crush injuries occur when a considerable amount of force is exerted on a specific part of the body, and they can be devastating. These types of injuries often occur when a falling object traps a victim, during a building collapse, from a machine or device failure, or in a vehicle accident. If the damage to the affected area is severe enough, doctors may be forced to amputate the crushed part of the body or more in order to prevent further damage from spreading from the initial point of injury. If you suffered a crush injury through the reckless or negligent actions of someone else, you may be able to file a lawsuit to secure compensation to cover any damages and medical bills you may have incurred.

Give us a call at (212) 577-9325 to speak with a lawyer today.

Our NYC personal injury lawyers at The Perecman Firm have fought for the rights of injured victims for more than three decades, and over that time we have recovered more than half a billion dollars in verdicts and settlements for our clients. If you were seriously injured through someone else’s wrongful or negligent actions, contact our firm today to learn what we can do to help you and begin planning out what to do next.

Injuries Caused In Crush Accidents

Victims could face a number of injuries in these types of accidents, including:

  • Bruising
  • Lacerations
  • Fractured bones
  • Compartment Syndrome
  • Smashed extremities
  • Crush syndrome
  • Nerve damage
  • Paralysis
  • Death

Crush Syndrome

One of the most dangerous complications that can occur after a crush injury is known as crush syndrome. When skeletal muscle is crushed, it can release muscle breakdown products like myoglobin, phosphorus, potassium and more into the bloodstream putting the victims at risk of suffering from major shock, renal failure and even death. Crush syndrome requires immediate medical attention in order to prevent these dangerous symptoms.
