What can I claim for in an accident at work crush injury claim?
All personal injury claims, including crush injury at work claims, are broken down into two parts, and include a number of different damages and compensation amounts.
Crush injury at work claims are made up of:
General damages- compensation for the pain and suffering of your injuries, based on the type and severity of the injuries
Special damages- compensation for any other financial losses associated with your injuries and how it has impacted your life. This can include:
Lost earnings from your crush injury at work
Potential lost earnings due to your crush injury at work
Medication costs for your crush injury at work
Travel costs associated with your crush injury at work
How much is my crush injury claim for an accident at work worth?
No two crush injury at work claims are the same, and therefore they will not be calculated or valued in the same way. The majority of the financial compensation making up many crush injury at work claims comes from the special damages aspect of the claim, which is calculated on an entirely individual basis based on how the injuries have impacted your life as a whole.
In terms of the other aspect of the claim, the general damages, this value depends on the type of injuries that you have sustained and the severity of them.

What are the common causes of crush injury at work claims?
Crush injuries at work can occur for a number of reasons, and multiple acts of workplace negligence can lead to accidents causing crush injuries.
Some of the most common causes of crush injuries at work include:
Dangerous machinery- common in factories and warehouses, and construction sites, when proper training is not provided on dangerous machinery it can lead to workers entanglement in machinery, or the machinery falling on the worker
Falling objects at work- another common cause of crush injuries at work are falling objects in workplaces, often leading to head injuries and foot injuries
Work vehicle crush injuries- when daggers, forklift trucks, and farm vehicles are used in a workplace environment, there is a risk of people becoming trapped between the vehicle and another surface, people’s feet being crushed under the work vehicle, or work vehicles falling on top of employees causing crush injuries
Crush injuries from workplace machinery:
When it comes to crush injuries from workplace machinery, there are a number of different causes and reasons for these accidents occurring in the first place.
One of the most common is inadequate training being provided to employees to use the dangerous machinery.
If you have been suffered crush injuries while using machinery of any kind, no matter how big or small, and do not believe that you were given proper training in how to use the machinery, you could claim financial compensation in a crush injury at work claim.
Our accident at work solicitors settle many crush injury at work claims for clients who have not been given adequate training for the machinery that they use at work.
You are not in the wrong for using the machinery incorrectly, and your employer had a legal duty to provide proper training to you in how to use the machinery.

How long do I have to make an accident at work crush injury claims?
As is the case with most accident at work claims, you have three years within which to make a crush injury at work claim after the date of the accident. This is subject to the 1980 Limitation Act.
If you were not aware of the injuries that you suffered until a later day, this becomes known as the date of knowledge, and the three year period starts instead from this date.
While three years may seem like a long period of time to file an accident at work claim, there is no saying how long a particular claim will take to build, or how long it will take our accident at work solicitors to gather all of the medical and legal evidence available.
Because of this uncertainty, our specialist accident at work solicitors would advise all potential clients to reach out to us as soon as possible, so that we can get to work on building your crush injury at work claim, and obtain the maximum financial compensation available for you as our client.
Will I have to go to court to make an accident at work crush injury claim?
When we think of personal injury claims, many of us think of a court battle with an intimidating judge involved. However, generally speaking, only about 5% of personal injury claims end up in court.
The vast majority of accident at work claims are settled outside of court, and liability is admitted long before it gets to the stage of court proceedings. This allows our clients to achieve financial compensation without having to step foot in a courtroom.
While our accident at work solicitors know that clients would generally much rather settle out of court, and we do everything in our power to ensure that this is the case, we are not afraid to go to court for our clients and fight tooth and nail in order to win their cases and obtain financial compensation on their behalf.
Depending on the size of the crush injury claim, it is often not necessary for the claimant to attend the court proceedings themselves. For more information on your specific crush injury claim, contact our accident at work solicitors, here.
