How can crush injuries impact your future health?

Ohio residents like you spend a fair amount of time on the road. Unfortunately, the more exposure you have to other drivers, the higher your overall risk for getting into a crash can be. This in turn increases your chances of suffering from severe and painful injuries like crush injuries.

According to MedlinePlus, a crush injury is the result of your body being pinned between two (or more) hard surfaces. The resulting application of pressure over an extended period of time leads to a plethora of complications. For example, sufferers of crush injuries may experience internal bleeding, bone fractures or break and nerve damage. In the case of a car crash, crush injuries are usually the result of being pinned between the road and your vehicle, or two vehicles.

The severity of these injuries can vary greatly depending on the pressure and duration of the crushing force. However, some people who receive crush injuries are never fully able to recover. For example, if your nerves are damaged as a result of a crush injury, you may find yourself with permanent pain, numbness, tingling, or altered sensation. If the blood circulation was cut off to a limb for too long, there might have been irreversible cell death that could lead to the necessitation of an amputation.

If you have suffered from a crush injury, the road to recovery may be a long and bumpy one. You may want to contact an experienced attorney who can help you seek compensation for the health problems you faced in the aftermath of the crash.
