Most Common Causes of Chest Injuries
Whilst chest injuries can occur from innumerable types of accidents, those that you’re not at fault for are limited in number. This is because you are owed a duty of care by your employer, other road users, and businesses whose premises you are on in Glasgow. When an accident happens, and you suffer a chest injury as a result, the party at fault has acted negligently. They will need to be held accountable.
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.
Chest Injury Causes – Public Place Accidents in Glasgow
You deserve to feel safe when visiting businesses in Glasgow. This is why companies have a duty of care to your health and safety when you visit their premises. Most of the time, injuries in public places tend to be caused by slip, trip and fall accidents, where such injuries aren’t commonly resulting in chest injury. However, collapsing displays and storage can crush patrons in shops and stores – causing significant injury.
Chest Injuries from Road Traffic Accidents in Glasgow
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 01418 465 957.
Types of Chest Injuries
There aren’t many different forms of chest injury, but they are almost all very serious. Bruising causes extreme discomfort, broken ribs can puncture organs, organs themselves can fail. In the worst of these cases, the injuries 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.
