How are Chest Injuries Caused?
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 Portsmouth. 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.
Workplace Accidents in Portsmouth Leading to Chest injuries
Accidents at work are a common way of sustaining personal injuries in Portsmouth, but a chest injury is still a rare thing to happen. In these cases, your employer must have acted negligently. Serious lapses in health and safety are – crushing from falling objects, striking moving machinery, falling from heights, colliding with a work vehicle. Any of these workplace accidents have a strong chance of awarding the injured party compensation.
Public Place Accidents Leading to Chest Injury
Shops, supermarkets, and other businesses in Portsmouth are usually safe spaces. However, accidents can happen in public places, and when they do, the business could be liable for the injury. Fortunately, slips, trips, and falls are the more typical accident to happen in these places, and most of these injuries are minor. However, they can, lead to chest injuries. They can also be caused by falling displays and shelving.
Chest Injury – Road Traffic Accidents in Portsmouth
Road traffic accidents are one of the single most common causes of personal injury we see in Portsmouth. 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 injury. Without any of the protection afforded to our heads, chests can be left to take the brunt of injury.

Chest Injuries – Different Forms

Industrial diseases are considered as “personal injuries” when claiming compensation. Common diseases that affect the chest – or more accurately, the lungs – are COPD, Mesothelioma, occupational asthma. These forms of chest injury can be traced back to employment, especially with Asbestos claims, and therefore someone is liable for the injury.
