Common Causes of Crush Injuries

Crush injuries can occur in a variety of accidents, including those that take place in the workplace and on the road.

Some of the most common causes of crush injuries include:

What Are the Symptoms of a Crush Injury?

Crush injuries are extremely painful and can cause a wide range of symptoms. If you have sustained a crush injury and are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you should seek medical treatment right away.

Symptoms of a crush injury may include:

  • Severe pain
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Difficulty moving the affected area
  • Swelling
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Weakness
  • Loss of sensation
  • Discoloration at the injury site
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Confusion
  • Unconsciousness

How Are Crush Injuries Treated?

Crush injuries require immediate medical attention. 

If you have sustained a crush injury, you may be taken to the emergency room by ambulance. Once you arrive at the hospital, doctors will assess the severity of the injury and take steps to stabilize your condition. This may involve taking X-rays and ordering other diagnostic tests to determine the extent of the damage.

After you are stabilized, you may undergo surgery to repair the damage. This may involve removing damaged tissue and bone and stabilizing the area with pins, screws, or plates. In some cases, amputation may be necessary. After the surgery, you may need to stay in the hospital for several days or longer. You may also need to undergo physical therapy and other types of rehabilitation to regain function in the affected area.

How Long Does It Take to Recover from a Crush Injury?

The recovery process for a crush injury can be long and difficult. The length of time it takes to recover depends on the severity of the injury and whether or not it was treated promptly.

In some cases, crush injuries can be life-threatening. For example, if a person’s chest or abdomen is crushed, they may suffer internal bleeding, organ damage, or other life-threatening complications. In other cases, the bones, muscles, and other tissues may be crushed, leading to a loss of sensation, nerve damage, and other issues.

What Are My Legal Rights After a Crush Injury?

If you have sustained a crush injury due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. However, it is important to note that the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New Mexico is only three years. 

This means that you only have three years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit. If you do not file a lawsuit within this period, you may be barred from recovering any compensation at all.

For this reason, it is important to get in touch with an experienced crush injury lawyer in New Mexico as soon as possible. At Simon Perdue Law, we have a detailed understanding of this area of law, and we can help you fight for the fair compensation you are owed. We can also handle all aspects of your case so you can focus on what matters most—your recovery.
