About Crush Injuries in Dallas, TX

Dallas Injury Lawyer Handling Crush Cases

The term "crush injuries" is pretty straight forward, there isn't much to argue about what a crush injury is, or how to determine one. Crush injuries occur when a body part is subject to a high degree of pressure or force, generally when squeezed between two objects.

The two objects that lead to the harm are not always movable items; the injury could be caused by a rock falling to the ground. If the rock were to hit your foot, it would be crushed between the rock and the ground you stood on. Another example would be a hand that is smashed in a doorway. A household door is generally not enough to create a serious crush injury; however an industrial plant with heavy steel doors or something of the like could easily crush a hand or other body part that is in its path.

The injuries sustained by these kinds of accidents can range from minor bruising, to severe crushing and breaking damage that could result in amputation; there are even cases where a crush injury results in immediate death. Depending on the size, weight, and velocity of the objects involved in the crush accident, injuries can include bleeding, bruising, brain damage, spinal cord trauma, compartment syndrome, fractures, lacerations, nerve injury and secondary infection. These are all injuries that can be avoided most of the time.
