What Causes Chest Injuries?
An injury to the chest can be caused by so many different accidents – but something must have gone seriously wrong for such an important part of our body to become injured.
Accidents at Work Causing Chest Injury
For instance, an accident at work, like being crushed by falling objects, struck by machinery, or falling from a height could all cause significant chest injury. In these cases, your employer would likely be liable for your personal injury, and compensation would be due to you.
Injuries to the Chest in Wakefield‘s Public Places
If you’re visiting a Wakefield local business, the last thing you want to think about is your safety. Business owners have a duty of care to your health, which makes them liable when accidents do happen. Frequently, patrons are injured by slipping, tripping, or falling accidents – which isn’t often a cause of chest injuries. However, collapsing store units, displays, and other promotional areas can crush people – and significant incidents can cause serious chest injuries.
Chest Injury – Road Traffic Accidents in Wakefield
Chest Injuries aren’t usually an isolated area for damage to occur in a road traffic accident. A number of different parts of our body, such as our necks, are prone to injury in car accidents. Chest injuries are no different, especially where seatbelts are concerned. But in the event of motorcycle crashes, pedestrian knockdowns, or bicycle accidents, there is very little protecting the exposed areas of the body – the chest being one of them. This can lead to serious injury, and even death.
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 01924 961 567^.
Chest Injury – the Different Types
An injury to the chest can result in organ damage, if not broken ribs, which if untreated quickly, can be fatal. At the bare minimum, bruising can cause difficulty moving and great discomfort. If you’ve suffered a chest injury in Wakefield, it’s likely to have caused a lot of pain and suffering, which our team of personal injury experts will help you seek damages for.
When it comes to personal injury claims, industrial diseases that cause you harm are considered as “injuries.” Such exposure to dangerous substances, like Asbestos, can cause deadly diseases to develop, like Mesothelioma. Occupational diseases that can affect the chest area are COPD, lung disease, and Asbestos-related diseases, to name a few. In these instances, your employer may be liable for your deteriorating health.
If you suffered a chest injury and the short-term effects of it, there maybe complications further down the road. This why our personal injury solicitors** for Wakefield will examine your medical records closely for any potential loss in the future. Contact our expert team today on 01924 961 567^ to start your claim.
