Crush Injuries

Philadelphia Personal Injury Attorneys Serving the Injured Since 1992

Crush injuries occur when an object causes compression of the body or a part of the body. They can happen in many different ways with greatly varied causes, such as dog bites, construction equipment accidents, or motor vehicle collisions.

No matter their causes, crush injuries can be catastrophic. They can include:

  • Severe cuts and bruises
  • Bone fractures
  • Nerve injury/paralysis
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Internal organ damage

Depending on how extreme crush injuries are, they may require the surgical amputation of the affected limb or extremity. Some crush injuries can prove fatal, particularly if the trunk or head are involved. Crush injuries to the spine or neck can cause paralysis.

If you or someone you love has been injured, do not wait to talk to a Philadelphia personal injury lawyer at Marciano & MacAvoy, P.C. Crush injuries require immediate medical attention, and possibly ongoing care. Surgery, assistive devices, medication, and physical therapy may be needed to restore form and function, but there is also the possibility that permanent disabilities or loss of limb may result. A skilled attorney can help you seek fair compensation to cover all of your care.
