Suffered a Crush Injury?
Experienced Cobb County Workers' Comp Lawyer
Any job that involves working with heavy machinery can result in a crushed
hand, foot, arm or leg. Getting a limb caught in a machine can cause a
catastrophic injury. Other causes of crush injuries include traumatic
falls, when equipment falls on top of a worker, when equipment runs over
a worker, and car collisions.
According to the 2011 Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index, getting caught
or compressed by something is one of the top causes of disabling workplace
injuries. These injuries can lead to chronic pain, weakness in the affected
limb, tingling, stiffness, bleeding, loss of limb, nerve injuries, compartment
syndrome, paralysis or even death. If you have suffered a crush injury
while on the job, turn to our Cobb County workers' compensation attorneys
for help. We can help you prepare and file a claim so you are able to

Steps to Take After a Work-Related Accident
After sustaining such a life-changing injury, you need to do the following:
- Receive medical treatment, including rehabilitative care.
- Tell your employer about your injuries.
- Obtain an experienced workers' compensation attorney to help you file
a workers' compensation claim.
After sustaining a crush injury, you will most likely need ongoing medical
care, surgical procedures, and may even need assistive medical devices.
Even after these costly treatments, you might never be able to perform
your job duties fully again. You don't have to deal with this alone.
Our firm can help you through the claims process and even seek an appeal
on your behalf if your claim was initially denied.
