Chest injuries – what you need to know about making an accident at work claim
If you have been involved in a serious workplace accident, you may have suffered chest injuries.
Injuries affecting the heart, lungs, ribs and chest area in general can be incredibly serious, leading to life-long disability and in many cases, death. A number of workplace accidents can cause injuries of this nature, including incidents involving machinery, falls from a height and the inhalation of chemicals or hazardous substances.
An accident this serious in nature can be traumatising, and can lead to life-changing injuries overnight. If you have been in a workplace accident that has resulted in chest-related injuries, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation if you were not at fault.
Employers have a responsibility to ensure a safe working space for all employees, and if they fail to do this, they could be made to pay a substantial sum in financial compensation. Employers that have neglected to follow health and safety regulations, failed to administer proper training and safety gear or otherwise failed to protect employees should be held accountable, especially when this negligence has caused something as serious as a chest injury.
