Chest Injury Compensation Claims
If your chest or any of the vital organs that it contains are injured as a result of an accident that was not your fault then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation against the person responsible. This is because they are likely to have owed you a duty of care to ensure that they do not prejudice your health and safety. If you would like to make a claim then you should speak with a personal injury claims Manchester solicitor** who will be able to assess whether a duty of care was owed to you and whether that duty has been breached.
Chest injuries can be caused by a number of things from road traffic accidents to exposure to asbestos or by playing sports. As the chest contains important organs like the heart and the lungs, any impact could have very serious consequences.
Make a Claim for a Chest Injury
The amount of compensation that you can claim will depend on the seriousness of the injury, the degree of negligence, recovery time, government guidelines and the amount that has been awarded in previously decided cases with similar facts. In addition to compensation for your actual injuries, you can also make a claim for consequential loss which is loss that has come as a direct cause of the accident, for example, medical bills and loss of income.
It is essential that you use our experienced, Manchester-based personal injury claims solicitor** to represent you as they will ensure that you are able to claim the maximum amount of compensation. This is vital because compensation awards are usually paid out by insurance companies who often seek to limit the amount they have to pay out.
If would like to make a compensation claim following a chest injury then you should act fast as, under the Limitation Act 1980, any claim must be made within three years of the date of the accident that caused the injury. Whilst there are some exceptions to this rule (such as in the case of children), this rule is strictly adhered to by the courts and therefore any delay could result in you being time barred from bringing a claim.
