Chest injuries - What can I claim for?
Chest injury claims involve damage to the chest, lungs and heart, and can have potentially life-threatening consequences. The majority of injuries are caused by asbestos-related diseases, such as mesothelioma, but falls from a height or road accidents are also responsible.Injuries by seat belts are common in road accidents.
The average compensation for chest injuries is:
- Minor injury - £1,920 TO £4,660*
- Moderate injury - £27,450 TO £48,080*
- Major injury - £88,270 TO £131,620*
Injuries range from minor fractures and asthma to severe lung disease and damage to the chest, resulting in lung removal or serious heart surgery. If your injury was caused by another person's negligence (e.g. an employer, or another driver) then you could be entitled to compensation.
Factors that influence the amount of a financial payout include age and gender, psychological effects, your ability to work and the long-term effects of your injury on your health and overall life expectancy.
