    How to claim chest injury compensation


    Did you know that 25% of all deaths from traumatic injury are caused by chest injuries? A chest injury includes any physical injury to the chest including injuries to the lungs, heart and ribs. If you’ve been injured in an accident at work or in a public place, there is something you can do. Get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline and see if you’re eligible to claim chest injury compensation. There’s a three-year time limit in place to make a claim and our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee** basis, so you have nothing to lose by getting in touch for more information.

    What types of chest injuries could occur?

    Since 2000, we have helped hundreds of people claim chest injury compensation for injuries including a punctured lung, heart problems and broken or cracked ribs. Injuries could be caused by traffic collisions, crush accidents, a fall from height, objects falling from height or a vehicle rollover (common amongst tractor drivers and those working in agriculture). So if you’ve suffered chest injuries after an accident at work, whether you work in construction, agriculture or another industry, we could help you claim personal injury compensation.

    Symptoms of chest injuries include bruising, pain, a crunching sound in the ribs, difficulty breathing and coughing up blood, and it’s vital to seek emergency medical attention after your accident, so that your injuries can be assessed. It’s likely that you’ll need time off work if you have suffered a serious chest injury and you may even need surgery. Some chest injuries, such as damage to your heart or major blood vessels, could lead to long-term symptoms such as heart problems or difficulty breathing, affecting your future as well as your ability to work.

    Going back to work

    After your accident, it may be weeks or months before you’re able to return to work, which can affect your finances. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, our professional personal injury lawyers will take into account any loss of earnings when working out your personal injury settlement, so you won’t be left out-of-pocket. You could even claim for the cost of any future care or medical treatment you may need as a result of your injuries. Give our freephone 24/7 helpline a call on 0800 689 0500 today and you’ll benefit from confidential, no-obligation advice from our experienced personal injury advisors. We’re waiting to take your call.
