Crushing Injuries

Crushing Injuries

If you have suffered a crush injury in a workplace environment, you may be eligible to claim compensation. Financial compensation awarded for crushing injuries is intended to help victims pay bills incurred during a period spent out of work, rehabilitation costs and to compensate them for the pain and suffering caused by their injury.

Can I Make a Crush Injury Claim?

Your employer has a legal obligation to remove unnecessary or easily managed risks from the workplace. This could mean anything from providing the proper training in the use of a particular piece of machinery, to ensuring you are supplied with safety equipment or protective clothing.

If you suspect that your employer has breached their duty of care to you, and this has resulted in a crush injury, it is highly likely you will be able to make a claim.

  • Falling boxes and heavy goods
  • Removal of guards on Industrial Machines
  • Road traffic accidents
