Causes of Chest Injury
Injuries to the chest can be caused in many different ways, but when a party has failed in their duty of care to you, they are liable for the accident. A non-fault chest injury occurs from a serious lapse in health and safety, and as such, you deserve to be compensated for your loss.
Injuries to the Chest from Accidents at Work
If you’ve suffered a chest injury at work from any of the following types of accidents, your employer is more than likely liable, and you will stand a strong chance of receiving compensation.
- Falls from heights
- Objects falling or collapsing onto employees
- Moving machinery striking staff
- Work vehicle collisions
Chest Injury Causes – Public Place Accidents in Leicester
Shops, supermarkets, and other businesses in Leicester are usually safe spaces. However, accidents can happen in public places, and when they do, the business could be liable for the injury. Fortunately, slips, trips, and falls are the more typical accident to happen in these places, and most of these injuries are minor. However, they can, lead to chest injuries. They can also be caused by falling displays and shelving.
Road Traffic Accidents
Road traffic accidents can cause a litany of different types of injury, all depending on the force of collision with other road users. Whilst chests are usually the most protected in car crashes, the most vulnerable road users can be thrown clear of their vehicles. Motorcycle riders for instance have a lot of protection for their heads, but not nearly as much for their chests. This is also true of cyclists and pedestrians, who are seriously at risk of injury.
It doesn’t matter how your chest injury was sustained in Leicester – if you’re not at fault, we can help. Call our personal injury experts on 0116 214 5630^ for a free claim assessment today and start your compensation journey.
Types of Chest Injuries
There’s no two ways about it, chest injuries can be easily fatal. A broken rib can cause organs to be punctured, damage to lungs causes issues with breathing. And given the fact they are internal organs, rapid medical assistance may be difficult, if not impossible. This is why our Leicester accident claim solicitors** take any and all chest injuries very seriously.
Chest injuries aren’t just caused by physical afflictions, industrial diseases can also injure the chest and the vital organs within it. The most common types of occupational illness affecting the chest area are Mesothelioma, COPD, work-caused Asthma, and lung disease. In these situations, your employer, current or past, may be liable for your illness, and compensation could be due to you.
Even if the type of chest injury isn’t fatal, it can leave you with long-term debilitating conditions, like Musculoskeletal Disorders and breathing conditions. That’s why it is imperative that you seek the guidance of our Leicester injury claim solicitors**.
