Workplace Crush Injury – What to do Next?
A workplace crush injury is physically devastating, often resulting in chronic pain, disability, limb loss or death. To quite literally add insult to injury, this kind of trauma also incurs deep financial hardship and emotional suffering. Medical bills are often the least of an injured worker’s (or their family members’) troubles: A crushed limb or other body part more often than not permanently affects someone’s ability to return to the workplace. Additionally, the emotional damage and strain caused by a devastating physical blow can cause depression, marital problems and other forms of distress.
