Workers Compensation Crush Injury Claims
Crush injury is compression of extremities or other parts of the body that causes muscle swelling and/or neurological problems or internal organ injuries. These kinds of injuries can also involve bleeding, bone fractures, open wounds, bruising, muscle breakdown, loss of circulation and can be devastating.
Crush injuries often occur in workplace explosions or from falling objects. The most drastic response to crushing under massive objects may be an on site amputation. As one may expect, the long term affects of a crush injury can be permanent and devastating. If you suffered a crush injury at work, you may be entitled to Permanent Total Disability (PTD) through North Carolina workers compensation. We have experience and will make sure you get the workers’ comp benefits you deserve.
When these injuries occur in the workplace or on a job site, it can be due to the negligence of another person. If a third party is at fault, you may have a third-party claim in addition to your workers’ compensation claim. At the law firm of Hemmings & Stevens, PLLC, we will determine whether there is some party other than your employer who is responsible for your injury and help you recover the damages you deserve.
