Common Causes of Crush Injuries

When many people think of a crushing injury, they think of falling objects. However, crushing injuries can be caused by several other circumstances.

The types of situations that can lead to crushing injuries include:

Collapsed structures or trenches

Forklift accidents

Falls from heights

Getting caught in machinery

Faulty equipment braking systems

Unguarded moving parts

Getting pinned between a moving object and a stationary item

Getting hit by swinging machinery or other items

Who’s at Fault for My Injuries?

The first thing that you need to understand after you have suffered a crush injury is that your injuries are likely due to the negligence of someone else. Our legal team is here to investigate your case to discover every potentially liable party.

Possible responsible parties for a crush injury on a construction site include:




Property owners

Delivery drivers

Machinery manufactures

If your accident was caused by someone other than your employer, you might be entitled to pursue compensation for your damages beyond workers’ compensation benefits. We can help you identify all at-fault parties to maximize the compensation you receive.
