CHEST INJURY COMPENSATION CALCULATOR
There are a number of reasons why someone may have suffered a chest injury. Traumatic chest injuries are usually caused by road traffic accidents when there has been a high impact collision. On the other hand, internal organ damage resulting in a chest injury can be caused by an industrial-related disease, the latter forming the majority of chest injury claims.
When considering how much compensation might be awarded for a chest injury, there are a number of factors that will be taken into account. For example, your gender, age, the level of scarring involved and the extent to which your job and life expectancy have been affected by your injury
