Were You Seriously Injured Through Someone Else’s Actions?
Crush injuries occur when part of the victim’s body is trapped between objects that exert a considerable amount of force on that area, severely damaging the affected body parts. Many of these types of injuries occur during building collapses, from heavy falling objects and in car crashes. Depending on the severity of the damage, doctors may need to amputate the affected area to treat the injury and prevent any further complications like gangrene from spreading. No matter what type of accident caused your injury, the most important thing to do is to seek immediate medical attention to address any complications.

Common Injuries Caused By Crush Accidents
Some injuries victims may face include:
- Nerve damage
- Crush syndrome
- Smashed extremities
- Compartment syndrome
- Fractured bones
Crush syndrome, also known as Bywaters’ syndrome – it was first described by British physician Eric Bywaters in 1941 following the London Blitz – is caused when skeletal muscle is crushed, releasing potassium, phosphorous, myoglobin and other muscle breakdown products into the bloodstream. Medical professionals need to take extra care in cases where their patient could be suffering from this syndrome. If left untreated, it could lead to renal failure, major shock and even death.
