Compensation Calculator / Chest Injury

Calculate your chest injury compensation

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
  • Cracked/broken ribs
  • Internal injury
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.

Our compensation calculator offers you a guide to how much compensation you may receive for your injury alone. In addition to claiming for injury, you may also be able to claim for financial loss sustained as a result of the accident.
