Chest Injury Compensation

If you have suffered an injury to your chest, we can help.

Your chest is made up of various body parts, including your pectoral muscles, your sternum – the flat bone in the upper chest – your clavicle, which are your shoulder bones, the upper ribs, your rib cage, and the organs housed within it. If you injure any of these parts of your chest, the pain can be excruciating and depending on the injury, so can the fallout. If you have injured your chest and it is down to someone else’s negligence, contact the specialist solicitors at Jones Whyte today and we can help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

Claiming for a chest injury with specialist solicitors in Glasgow, Scotland

You could have injured your chest in a road traffic accident, a crushing injury at work, exposure to harmful chemicals or through someone being overly physical while you’re playing sport. However, you injured yourself, if it was due to the actions or inaction of someone else, contact the dedicated solicitors at Jones Whyte today.

Our solicitors will work with you to claim compensation, firstly for your pain and suffering, and secondly, for the financial losses you have incurred as a result of your injury – whether that is lost profits as a result of having to miss work or expenditures you have had to undergo in order to get better.

What we can expect to obtain on your behalf depends on the seriousness of your injuries, but broadly speaking, the expert solicitors at Jones Whyte will claim:

  • Between £50,000 and £120,000 for a traumatic chest or lung or heart injury;
  • From £25,000 to £43,000 for severe damage to the chest or lungs;
  • £10,000 to £14,000 for moderate damage to the chest or lungs;
  • Between £1,000 and £4,000 for a collapsed lung; and
  • Up to £3,000 for fractured ribs.

It helps our experienced solicitors to have as much documentation surrounding the incident as you can provide. We can make good use of medical records and reports, witness statements from those there at the time of the incident, as well as any further details you think might be useful.
