Lawyers for Amputation and Crush Injuries
Have you suffered a crushing injury or even a work-related amputation? Machine operators are vital to the economy, but these jobs bring a special risk of catastrophic injury and death. You may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits to help you and your family recover.
Construction and manufacturing jobs are especially dangerous, with workers crushed or hurt by a machine malfunction, falling cranes, dropped containers or equipment, structure collapses, or heavy machinery accidents.
If you or a family member has been injured by heavy equipment in a construction accident, you may be entitled to workers' compensation as well as to recover for damages caused by a negligent third party. At CT Injury Lawyers, our certified workers’ compensation specialists represent injured construction workers and their families in workers' compensation claims. Our lawyers provide personalized service during this difficult time.

If You Have Been Crushed on the Job…
Crush accidents result in a wide variety of injuries. Symptoms can range from numbness or tingling in the extremities to missing or amputated body parts. Construction workers are at a special risk for injury due to heavy equipment collapses. The collapse of a crane or other piece of heavy equipment can cause:
- Broken or crushed bones
- Brain injuries
- Neck, back and spinal cord injuries
- Wrongful death
Treating Your Trauma
If you are injured at work in the State of Connecticut, you should always report to your supervisor and seek immediate medical treatment. Always remember to tell a doctor that you were injured at work.
Once a doctor establishes the cause of an injury, workers’ compensation will pay for your medical bills. If your injury leaves you totally disabled, you are entitled to receive a weekly benefit for the weeks that you are disabled and unable to work- up to 75 percent of your regular take-home pay.
CT Injury Lawyers provides individualized service and proven legal representation to injured workers across Connecticut. Many crush injuries occur at the workplace with heavy equipment or machinery, but some can be as simple as catching a finger in a door.
In the aftermath of your trauma, talk to our lawyers if you any concerns. We will talk to the medical professionals, collect and file paperwork, and make sure you get the compensation needed while you recover.
