    Common accidents leading to hand crushing injuries

    We have over 20 years of experience in claims involving hand accidents at work and during this time have advised clients on a range of different crushing type accidents.

    Crushing injuries are particularly common in workers in the construction, manufacturing and agricultural sectors.

    Work related crushing injuries often affect hands, fingers, arms and legs and occur when a body part is squashed with force between two objects.

    The massive external pressure on limbs in crushing accidents can cause serious injury and damage bones, muscles, and internal organs. Often, there is little visible evidence on the outside of the body, but the hidden damage can be extensive and in some cases lead to limb requiring amputation.

    Some of the most common crushing accidents we have seen include:

    • Hand crushing injuries due to faulty or dangerous pieces of machinery. Workers arms, hands and fingers can become entangled or trapped in a machine
    • Hand crushing due to a heavy load or heavy object falling and landing on the hand
    • Materials in warehouses and on construction sites falling or collapsing onto clients, crushing hands, arms, feet and legs
    • A wide range of crushing injuries caused by faulty or dangerous elements on work vehicles, such as tipper lorries, FLTs, diggers, tractors and trucks

    There a wide variety of crushing accidents that can occur in the workplace and if the accident you were involved in is not listed above, do not worry. Our specialist team of personal injury solicitors have the necessary skill and expertise to advise you on the likelihood of a successful hand crushing accident at work in Lincolnshire claim.

    How do I start a hand crushing claim?

    Every new personal injury claim starts with an initial telephone call.

    We are pleased to offer all new client enquiries a free and no obligation consultation, during which we will take details from you relating to your accident and your injuries.

    When we have a clear picture of how your accident happened, who was to blame and we understand the severity of your injuries, if we believe there is a good chance of you being able to make a successful claim we may offer to represent you on a No Win No Fee basis.

    The Work Accident Claims process

    Our solicitors handle the entire claims process, from start to finish, on your behalf.

    Once we believe you have a good claim and we enter into a No Win No Fee agreement with you, all claims begin by us taking a detailed witness statement from you about the accident. This witness statement forms the basis for your claim.

    All employers owe their staff a duty of care to ensure they are not at risk of sustaining a hand crushing accident whilst carry out their duties. If your employer fails to provide you with sufficient training, carry out detailed risk assessments, maintain machinery correctly or fails in basic health and safety procedures then they may be deemed at fault for your accident.

    Ultimately, for us to succeed in a claim we must prove that the cause of the accident was due to a breach of duty by your employer.

    Throughout the claims process we regularly attend our clients at their homes to sign documents, take statements and provide claim updates. We believe that getting to know our clients helps us put forward stronger cases, enabling us to secure more compensation as a result.

    We will work as hard as we can on your behalf throughout the entire claims process.

    How much compensation can I claim for?

    The amount of compensation you can expect to claim depends on a number of different factors, including the severity of your crushing injuries and your recovery, your financial losses and long-term work prospects.

    All successful injury claims may include compensation for the following:

    • Compensation for your pain and suffering caused by your injuries
    • Compensation for any lost earnings, past, present and future as a result of the accident

    Depending on the severity of your injuries and your current and future financial losses, very serious hand crushing injuries can be valued at several hundred thousand pounds and in cases where someone has suffered life changing injuries, they can be valued in the millions.
