What type of chest injuries can I claim for?
If you have suffered a chest injury in a public place, at work, in a traffic accident or on private property, you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
Types of chest injuries may include – but are not limited to – the following:
- Lung damage due to toxic smoke inhalation

How much compensation will I receive?
The amount of compensation you may receive will depend on the severity of the injury you have suffered. This will be decided following medical assessment by a medical expert.
