Causes of Chest Injuries
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 Cardiff to allow such a serious injury to happen.
Chest Injuries from Workplace Accidents in Cardiff
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
Public Place Accidents Leading to Chest Injury
Chest injuries could also be caused by an accident in a shop, school, or restaurant. The most common accident to occur in public places are slips, trips, and falls. Without suitable time to react, like when slipping on a wet floor in a supermarket, our chests can be exposed whilst other body parts, like our heads, are protected. In stores, goods can fall from shelves, and displays could collapse onto you and crush your chest, resulting in injury.
Chest Injury – Road Traffic Accidents in Cardiff
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.
Regardless of how you’ve endured a chest injury in Cardiff, if the accident wasn’t your fault, you are likely to have a strong claim for compensation. Call our friendly team on 02920606835^ for a free claim assessment.
Chest Injuries – the Different Types
If you have experienced a chest injury, chances are you’d have suffered from broken ribs or organ damage. In particular, broken ribs can puncture said organs, requiring emergency medical assistance, and potentially causing death. Organs, like your heart, lungs, and critical arteries, need to be running constantly for us to survive, and any interruption to them can prove fatal.
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.
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. Call our team of personal injury experts on 02920606835^ today to start your claim.
Make a Claim for Chest Injury
Making a personal injury claim with us is a simple case of picking up the phone. Our team will help you establish who’s at fault and how much compensation your chest injuries warrant. We’ll guide you through all the steps, such as acquiring medical records and establishing witnesses, to secure the highest compensation award possible for your chest injuries.
As with most personal injury claims, there is a 3-year limit on making a chest injury claim, which is imposed by the courts.

The main thing is that you don’t delay in making your claim to avoid missing out on your deserved compensation awards.
