Auto Accidents | Sorey, Gilliland, & Hull, LLP
When car companies design a new vehicle, each model is put through a series of crash tests to identify safety features and weak points in the vehicle’s structure. Most vehicles are designed to properly absorb the impact for the rear and the front of the car, and seatbelts and airbags provide additional support in the event of an accident. However, the side and corners of vehicles offer the least protection for passengers.
Crush injuries involve compression of the extremities, which causes swelling of the muscles or neurological disturbances, or both. These injuries occur when force or pressure is put on a body part.
Crush injuries are often sustained when part of the body is squeezed between two heavy objects. This can happen on construction sites, in motor vehicle accidents, and all types of industrial accidents.
