Chest: Broken Ribs, Fractures, Penetrating Trauma, Internal Organ Injuries
An injury to your chest could occur both externally and internally. If you do a physical
job or take part in a tough contact sport, taking a blow to your chest, and especially
your sternum, could have very severe consequences.
But damage can also be caused to your chest internally by the inhalation of smoke,
fumes, dangerous gases (eg carbon monoxide poisoning) and fibrous material (such as asbestos,
which can still be found in old buildings).
Where could I suffer a chest injury?
If you have suffered a chest injury in an accident that was not your fault within
the last 3 years, you may be able to claim compensation for your personal injury
by means of a no win no fee agreement.
What if my injury is work-related?
If your chest injury happened at work and it wasn't your fault, you can claim legal
compensation without fear of reprisals from your boss. With asbestos related claims
it can often be a long time from exposure before symptoms occur so we are experts
in tracing old employers so you can claim compensation for your illness.
