How are Chest Injuries Caused?
A chest injury can be sustained from many different types of accidents. For those that happen that aren’t your fault, someone must have acted negligently in Reading to allow such a serious injury to happen.
Injuries to the Chest from Accidents at Work
Chest injuries can be caused whilst working if your employer has failed in their duty of care to you. Some of the common types of workplace accident in Reading leading to a chest injury are:
- Falling or collapsing objects, crushing you
- Being struck by moving machinery
- Falling from a height
- Being hit by a work vehicle
Any of these are serious breaches of health and safety, and as such, can make your employer liable for your personal injury.
Chest Injury Causes – Public Place Accidents in Reading
When you’re visiting a business in Reading, such as a supermarket, attending a school, or dining in a restaurant, the owner of the premises has a duty of care to your health. Quite often, patrons are injured by slipping, tripping, or falling. This can be from wet floors, objects obstructing pathways, or even loose cabling. Generally, these types of injury are minor, but they can become severe. Similarly, poorly maintained shelving and displays can cause objects to fall and crush members of the public, which can in turn result in major injuries, especially if they are to the chest area.
Chest Injury Causes – Road Traffic Accidents
Most will associate road traffic accidents in Reading with whiplash from car crashes. However, serious accidents can cause seatbelts to inflict a significant chest injury on a person. And those not wearing seatbelts, such as motorcyclists and bicycle users, can be thrown from their vehicle, leaving them prone to a multitude of injuries that are severe. Even as a pedestrian, being knocked down by a vehicle going the speed limit can cause high impact injuries to the chest area, as we instinctively move to protect our head.
It doesn’t really matter how the chest injury happened, if someone was at fault for the accident, you will likely have a case for compensation. For a free claim assessment, where we help you establish liability and provide estimates for your compensation, call our team of personal injury experts on 01182171835.
Different Types of Chest Injury
Common forms of chest injury are broken ribs and organ damage. Neither of these are minor injuries, which can prove fatal in certain conditions. Even rib breakages can puncture the heart and lungs. Everything within your chest needs to be operating around the clock for you to survive, which is why it is so critical to avoid injury to the chest.
Industrial diseases are considered as “personal injuries” when claiming compensation. Common diseases that affect the chest – or more accurately, the lungs – are COPD, Mesothelioma, occupational asthma. These forms of chest injury can be traced back to employment, especially with Asbestos claims, and therefore someone is liable for the injury.
It’s clear that chest injuries are very serious, and whatever the extent of your injuries, if someone is to blame, you’re likely to deserve compensation for your loss. We’ll consider all the long-term conditions you may experience after examining your medical records. This way, we can paint an accurate and fair estimate of your due compensation.
