Chest injuries could also be caused by an accident in a shop, school, or restaurant. The most common accident to occur in these places are slips, trips, and falls. Without suitable time to react, like when slipping on a wet floor in a supermarket, our chests can be exposed whilst other body parts, like our heads, are protected. In stores, goods can fall from shelves, and displays could collapse onto you and crush your chest, resulting in injury.
Chest Injuries from Road Traffic Accidents in Chester
Road traffic accidents can cause a litany of different types of injury, all depending on the force of collision with other road users.
