Understanding the Long-Term Impact and Costs of Crush Injuries
As you may have tragically learned, a crush injury can cause extensive damage to blood vessels, muscles, nerves, bones and skin. Because of the destruction to the human body, fasciotomy, amputation or other radical surgery may be required. The long-term impact of such a severe injury can include the following:
Intense, constant (24 hours per day, 7 days per week) and potentially permanent pain diagnosed as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)
The need for a prosthetic device or other adaptive equipment and often full-time nursing care for the short or long term
Inability to work in your prior occupation and a need for extensive vocational rehabilitation or retraining – or sometimes, loss of your ability to be gainfully employed in any capacity
