It is quite possible that if you are injured in an accident at work you could sustain injuries to your lungs. Our lungs are actually quite easily damaged. You could have a fall or slip over and land on something which causes a puncture wound to your chest area. If you fracture one or more of your ribs this could lead to a collapsed lung or even respiratory distress.
