How are Chest Injuries Caused?
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 Bristol Leading to Chest injuries
Accidents at work are a common way of sustaining personal injuries in Bristol, but a chest injury is still a rare thing to happen. In these cases, your employer must have acted negligently. Serious lapses in health and safety are – crushing from falling objects, striking moving machinery, falling from heights, colliding with a work vehicle. Any of these workplace accidents have a strong chance of awarding the injured party compensation.
Chest Injury – Accidents in Public
Chest injuries could also be caused by an accident in a shop, school, or restaurant. The most common accident to occur in these places are slips, trips, and falls. Without suitable time to react, like when slipping on a wet floor in a supermarket, our chests can be exposed whilst other body parts, like our heads, are protected. In stores, goods can fall from shelves, and displays could collapse onto you and crush your chest, resulting in injury.
Chest Injury – Road Traffic Accidents in Bristol
Chest Injuries aren’t usually an isolated area for damage to occur in a road traffic accident. A number of different parts of our body, such as our necks, are prone to injury in car accidents. Chest injuries are no different, especially where seatbelts are concerned. But in the event of motorcycle crashes, pedestrian knockdowns, or bicycle accidents, there is very little protecting the exposed areas of the body – the chest being one of them. This can lead to serious injury, and even death.
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.

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.
Legally speaking, diseases that affect you are classed as injuries when it comes to personal injury claims.
