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.

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