Making a crush injury compensation claim

Crush injuries can affect any part of the body. However, they are most likely to injure:

  • • Fingers.
    • Hands.
    • Legs.
    • Torso.

If injuries occur because of a failure in processes or negligence on the part of your employer, you will be able to make a crush injury compensation claim.

That’s because employers have a duty of care towards you.

They must take steps to reduce the risk of accidents, such as:

  • • Keeping the workplace, and access to it, free of hazards.
    • Ensure scaffolding is safe, to prevent anything dropping from a height.
    • Ensure everyone is trained.
    • Ensure safety signs are displayed.
    • Ensure equipment is maintained.
    • Ensure that PPE is supplied.

If they fail in any of these steps, they could be liable for crush injury compensation claims.

The claims process

A crush injury claim starts with a conversation with one of our experienced personal injury lawyers.

We will take your statement as a way of establishing exactly what happened. We will then thoroughly investigate the incident. This can include obtaining:

  • • Medical records.
    • Witness statements.
    • Expert testimony.

Most personal injury claims are settled out of court. In the unlikely occurrence that court action is required, you will find that Jones Whyte solicitors are tough and experienced litigators.
