Chest Injury Compensation
The term chest injury is a broad description that can cover many different types of injury. The chest area – enclosed in the body by the ribcage – contains many of the body’s major organs such as the heart and lungs. Any injury to this area has the potential to be serious and have a great effect on the sufferer’s life. Amanda Cunliffe Solicitors can help you get the compensation you are entitled to for such an injury.
Common chest injuries
Injuries to the chest are quite common in accidents involving impact trauma. They can cause many different injuries, such as some of the ones shown below.
- broken ribs
- fractured sternum (breastbone)
- bruising (contusion) to the internal organs
- crush injuries
- damage to the lungs from industrial disease
Who can make a claim for chest injury compensation?
- The accident occurred in the last three years
- The accident was not your fault
- You suffered injury
Please note that the three year time limit does not apply in some cases involving industrial disease, for example lung damage caused by inhalation of dangerous substances.
Accidents that cause chest injuries
Chest injuries can be sustained in a variety of ways. They are common in car accidents, where the velocity at impact has caused damage to the chest. They are also common in accidents at work, where being caught between heavy objects causes injury. Slipping and falling can also cause chest damage. Lastly, damage to the lungs often happens due to the inhalation of damaging fumes and substances at work.
