Crush Injury Attorney in San Diego

Did You Suffer A Serious Injury?

Crush injuries can be among the most devastating catastrophic injuries victims can suffer – in the most serious cases, amputation is often the only way to treat a destroyed limb. These types of injuries occur when a body part is caught between two objects and squeezed together with great force. The most common causes of crush injuries are car accidents, structure collapses, falling objects, etc. No matter the cause of your injury, the most important thing to do is seek medical attention immediately to receive treatment and to prevent any unnecessary complications.

Common Injuries Caused In These Incidents

Some of the most common injuries victims suffer include:

  • Nerve damage
  • Paralysis
  • Lacerations
  • Fractured bones
  • Bruising
  • Compartment syndrome
  • Crush syndrome
  • Death

Crush Syndrome

One of the most dangerous issues victims who suffered a crush injury can face is crush syndrome, which can be fatal if not treated properly. It can occur after skeletal muscle is crushed, which can release muscle breakdown products like phosphorus, potassium and myoglobin into the bloodstream.

This could lead to renal failure and major shock, and requires immediate treatment to prevent further damage to the victim. While medical professionals may have a number of options available to treat crush syndrome, amputation of the affected limb may be necessary to save the victim’s life.
