Crush Injury Claims Lawyers Glasgow, Scotland

Crush injuries are most common in working environments that involve interaction with heavy machinery, for example factories, warehouses, and construction and building sites. However, they can be a risk for many other employees, including office workers and drivers. In most cases, these types of injuries could have been avoided.

If you have sustained a crush injury at work and you think your employer is responsible, our personal injury team can assist. At Jones Whyte Law, we have experience of claims relating to all kinds of crush injuries, and an excellent reputation for securing the maximum amount of compensation available for our clients. Call us today for immediate, expert advice.

What are Crush Injuries?

A crush injury occurs where a part of the body is subject to strong impact from an external force. As crush wounds often involve damage to the tissue, organs, muscles and bones, they can have a serious and long-term impact for the person injured – and in very serious cases, the part of the body affected may need to be amputated. It may also be necessary to have long-term medical care to deal with the ongoing effects and complications from your injury.

It is only right that where your injury was caused by your employer’s negligence you are adequately compensated. A compensation award will take into account the severity of your injury and the impact it has had on your life. It will also aim to cover the financial loss you have incurred, for medical attention for example, and any future losses too.

At Jones Whyte, our team take care to obtain all relevant evidence so we can ensure we pursue the maximum level of compensation to properly accord with the severity of your injury.

Claiming for Compensation

If we believe your case has a good chance of success, we will first gather all the evidence, value your claim and send a claim letter to your employer’s insurance company. If your employer accepts liability, we will set about securing a reasonable settlement agreement. However, if it is not possible to agree a fair compensation amount, or your employer denies liability, we may advise that you take the matter to court.

At Jones Whyte, we will work hard to build a robust case on you behalf. This may involve arranging for a medical or health and safety specialist to give an expert opinion on your case, and gathering statements from witnesses. To help strengthen your case you should ensure the accident is recorded in your employer’s accident book and, where possible, take photos of the scene of the accident.
