Bronx Construction Accident Attorney
With the ever-present construction in the Bronx, construction site injuries are a common occurrence, both for construction workers and anyone who might be in the vicinity of a construction site when an accident happens.
If you have been hurt or have lost a loved one in a construction accident, contact Bronx construction accident lawyer Kenneth Wilhelm to help you navigate the tricky legal waters of seeking fair compensation.
What is a Crush Injury?
Due to the sheer mass of steel, tools and other equipment at construction sites, accidents resulting in a crush injury are perhaps the most common types of accidents in construction zones.
Crush injuries are injuries sustained by a worker or any other party as a result of being crushed by an item from a construction site. Such injuries can occur and present themselves in various ways. Some crush injuries may result in only bruising, while others result in much more serious injuries that will take months or even years to heal.
When a more serious accident takes place, it can result in catastrophic injuries, such as:
- Loss of limbs
- Compartment syndrome (when nerves, blood vessels, and muscles become compressed, causing pain)
- Spinal cord or brain trauma
It is typical for crush injuries to involve cases where the worker-victim is trapped or pinned down for hours by the fallen debris before being rescued. Such a prolonged incident can also result in psychological or emotional trauma in addition to the physical injuries.
We Can Help
Because crush injuries can lead to such severe injuries or even wrongful death, it is imperative that you quickly contact a Bronx construction injury lawyer to protect your legal rights and get the fair compensation that you need to start rebuilding your life after such a life-altering experience.
By waiting too long to contact a lawyer, you stand the possibility of losing valuable evidence that will ultimately be detrimental to the value of your personal injury claim.
