Our lungs are a vital part of the body’s make up and functions. Although our lungs have various forms of natural protection provided by the unique structure of the human body they are still vulnerable to injuries. The ways in which your lungs can be damaged in an accident are:
- Suffering from a direct trauma to your lungs such as a puncture wound.
- You could sustain an indirect injury from a blow to the chest which can cause you to suffer from a punctured lung.
- You could have damaged your lungs in a trip or fall.
- If someone dropped something on your chest.
- You could be crushed by something damaging your chest and lungs.
Any injury to your lungs can lead to breathing difficulties and pain. The length of recuperation and the treatment needed will depend on the severity of the lung or chest injury. Damage to your lungs could mean a spell in the hospital and you will not be able to work.
