Chest Injury Claims – Accident Compensation Solicitors Southampton
Chest injuries are serious forms of personal injury – they can be life-threatening. That’s why we take accidents leading to chest injuries very seriously. Our team of expert accident solicitors** will fight in your corner for the maximum compensation award that reflects the extent of your injuries and the loss you will experience as you take time off work to heal.
Most Common 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.
Accidents at Work Causing Chest Injuries
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 – Accidents in Public
If you’re visiting a Southampton 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 injury. However, collapsing store units, displays and other promotional areas can crush people – and significant incidents can cause serious chest injuries.
Road Traffic Accidents Leading to Chest Injuries
Road traffic accidents are one of the single most common causes of personal injury we see in Southampton. Most will automatically jump to whiplash when thinking about car crashes, but the chest is also at risk, especially with seatbelts in high impact crashes. Other vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians, cyclists, and motorbike riders, all stand significant risk of chest injuries. Without any of the protection afforded to our heads, chests can be left to take the brunt of injury.
