California Crush Injury Lawyers
Attorneys represent clients whose bodies have been crushed in accidents
No human body is indestructible. When enough force is pressed against someone, they can be crushed and suffer broken bones, internal organ failure or possibly even death. The devastating effects of crush injuries usually require long-term recuperation and time out of work. The accomplished California personal injury attorneys at Mastagni Holstedt, APC help victims of crush injuries obtain reimbursement for their healthcare expenses, lost wages and other damages stemming from their accident. From our main office in Sacramento and other locations throughout the state, we are strong advocates for people recovering from crush injuries caused by auto accidents, machine malfunctions and other harmful incidents.
Firm handles cases arising from car crashes, construction injuries and industrial accidents
Being crushed between two large objects is one of the most common causes of workplace fatalities, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. We handle crush injury claims stemming from the following types of incidents:
- Construction accidents — Heavy equipment on a construction site presents a serious risk to workers and other people in the area. A mechanical defect or careless operation of a crane, backhoe, excavator, bulldozer or another large machine might trigger an accident leading to a catastrophic injury.
- Vehicle crashes — Emergency personnel frequently have to use the “jaws of life” to extricate a victim who has been crushed in a car or truck crash. Unfortunately, in many cases, these efforts cannot be completed before the individual suffers permanent harm.
- Factory and warehouse accidents — Workers can be crushed by industrial machinery in factories, forklifts in warehouses and other large machines involved in the production or movement of products.
No matter what led to your crush injury claim, we have the skill and experience to maximize your financial recovery in a personal injury or wrongful death action.
Types of medical conditions associated with crush accidents
If the incident is not fatal, the victim could experience permanent effects, such as amputation, loss of function, extreme pain and neurological issues. Even in cases where recovery is possible, it might take months or even longer to heal from broken bones, internal organ damage and other medical conditions. Regardless of the specific consequences of your accident, you can rely on us to develop a comprehensive legal argument and to present expert evidence regarding the nature and effects of your injuries.
Firm seeks to maximize payment for victims of crush injuries
Severe crush injuries are typically the result of the negligence of one or more parties. Our firm files lawsuits against careless drivers, manufacturers of defective products and other individuals and businesses that contribute to victims’ injuries. Our attorneys battle to hold each liable party accountable so that victims can obtain all of the damages they are entitled to, including reimbursement for medical bills, lost income, rehabilitation expenses and accommodations that need to be made to their homes. We also sue for noneconomic damages like pain and suffering, emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life. Additionally, we represent claimants in workers’ compensation proceedings when they suffer a crush injury while on the job.
