Crush Injury syndrome, also often known as Bywaters’ syndrome, is rare in Tulsa and throughout the US. However, in some cases of accidents or for any other reason where the victim of the accident has been trapped for a considerable amount of time, the person might suffer from Crush Injury syndrome. Such injuries can lead to serious trauma to the head and skeletal muscles of the accident victim, which often leads to severe consequences.
In a case in which such renal crush injuries occur due to accidents, a victim and the victim’s loved ones often consult personal injury lawyers. These lawyers initiate a lawsuit against the guilty party to recover compensation for pain and suffering because of the defendant’s reckless and negligent act. In addition, the lawsuit can provide compensation for the exorbitant medical expenses incurred for treating and rehabilitating the victim.
Crush Injury syndrome often leads to various complications, which causes the victim’s death. State authorities in Tulsa are trained in such emergency operations to help such victims. In many cases, a victim may be vulnerable to Crush Injury syndrome, if the person has been confined for over four hours. In such cases, extreme pressure to the renal or spinal region can lead to serious injuries that may cause total or partial disabilities.
In many cases, being trapped for hours can cut off the air supply to vital organs. Immediate medical attention is often the only option available for the victim that can be the difference between life and death. Such pain and suffering is often looked at with empathy by the judge and the jury, in the event of an accident, due to negligence on the part of negligence of building owners.
