Workers' compensation claims not always straightforward

If you have ever been injured on the job or become sick because of the work you do, you know that workers' compensation laws are not always clear and concise. They are full of pitfalls that can make it difficult, if not impossible, to claim your injury or illness. One of those injuries could very well be a crush injury.

This is a blunt trauma and that means there will be complications that are related to it. Blunt force trauma, or a crush injury, have a totally different assessment that the medical team must ensure they look at. One thing in particular that the doctor will look for is not just top-of-the-skin injury but a beneath-the-skin injury. There could be serious damage to your heart, lungs and other vital organs. Sometimes the injuries are to your lesser extremities, like your fingers which can be debilitating as well.

This type of injury most likely will happen in some sort of moving vehicle, like a tractor, a truck or a front loader.

Filing a workers' compensation claim for this can take time and patience. Even then, sometimes you just run into red tape that is put in your way legally. The attorneys at Wolf, Baldwin & Associates, P.C., are well versed in this type of claim and can put our 70 years of combined experience behind you.
