An injury to the chest is one of the most severe forms of personal injury we deal with in Sunderland. Our chests contain our heart, lungs, and key arteries – our bodies can’t survive without them.

Having to recover from any type of chest injury takes a long time, and you are sure to experience some form of financial loss. This why you need an expert team of accident claim solicitors** behind you – we can get the highest possible compensation pay-out for your chest injuries.
Call us on 01916 222 197^ to start your claim today and get the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering.
Causes of Chest Injury
Injuries to the chest can be caused in many different ways, but when a party has failed in their duty of care to you, they are liable for the accident. A non-fault chest injury occurs from a serious lapse in health and safety, and as such, you deserve to be compensated for your loss.
Workplace Accidents in Sunderland Leading to Chest injuries
Chest injuries can be caused whilst working if your employer has failed in their duty of care to you. Some of the common types of workplace accident in Sunderland leading to a chest injury are:
- Falling or collapsing objects crushing you
- Being struck by moving machinery
- Falling from a height
- Being hit by a work vehicle
Any of these are serious breaches of health and safety, and as such, can make your employer liable for your personal injury.
Public Place Accidents Leading to Chest Injury
If you’re visiting a Sunderland local business, the last thing you want to think about is your safety. Business owners have a duty of care to your health, which makes them liable when accidents do happen. Frequently, patrons are injured by slipping, tripping, or falling accidents – which isn’t often a cause of chest injury. However, collapsing store units, displays, and other promotional areas can crush people – and significant incidents can cause serious chest injuries.
Injuries to the Chest from Road Traffic Accidents in Sunderland
Road traffic accidents are one of the single most common causes of personal injury we see in Sunderland. 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.
It doesn’t really matter how the chest injury happened, if someone was at fault for the accident, you will likely have a case for compensation.

Chest Injury – the Different Types
Common forms of chest injury are broken ribs and organ damage. Neither of these are minor injuries, which can prove fatal in certain conditions. Even rib breakages can puncture the heart and lungs. Everything within your chest needs to be operating around the clock for you to survive, which is why it is so critical to avoid injury to the chest.
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.
