Crush Injury

When a part of the body is caught between two objects that are being pushed together by a high pressure, the resulting squeeze will leave that person with a crush injury. Most often accidental, crush injuries are responsible for broken bones, severe bruising, bleeding, lacerations and compartment syndrome.

Crush injuries are common in car accidents, falls and in any situation that can lead to a structure collapsing. But there are also varying degrees of crush injuries, from slamming a finger in a door to limbs being trapped and crushed for an extended period of time.
