Types Of Chest Injuries

Chest injuries can encompass a range of conditions, varying in severity and originating from diverse circumstances. At Jones Whyte, we recognize the significance of understanding these injuries to provide tailored legal support for those seeking compensation. Here’s an overview of common types of chest injuries:

Fractured Ribs:

  • A frequent result of blunt force trauma, fractured ribs can cause intense pain and difficulty breathing. Accidents such as falls, car collisions, or workplace incidents often contribute to rib fractures.

Sternal Fractures

  • The sternum, or breastbone, can suffer fractures due to high-impact accidents, often resulting in significant pain and potential complications. These injuries commonly occur in car accidents or falls.

Pulmonary Contusions

  • Blunt force to the chest can lead to pulmonary contusions, where the lung tissue becomes bruised. Symptoms may include difficulty breathing, chest pain, and coughing up blood.


  • Pneumothorax occurs when air accumulates in the space between the lung and chest wall, causing the lung to collapse partially or completely. Trauma, such as a rib fracture, can lead to this serious condition.

Cardiac Injuries:

  • Severe chest trauma may result in injuries to the heart, ranging from contusions to more critical issues. Cardiac injuries require immediate medical attention and can be associated with high-impact accidents.

Soft Tissue Injuries:

  • Trauma can also lead to injuries in the soft tissues of the chest, such as muscles and ligaments. These injuries may cause persistent pain and discomfort.

Chest Wall Hematomas:

  • Traumatic events can cause bleeding within the chest wall, resulting in a hematoma. This condition may lead to swelling, pain, and potential complications.

Flail Chest:

  • A severe chest injury involving multiple rib fractures, causes a portion of the chest wall to become detached. This can result in paradoxical chest movement and breathing difficulties.

Understanding the nature of these chest injuries is crucial for both medical treatment and legal proceedings.
