Broken ribs often require four to six weeks recovery time therefore if you have suffered from a broken rib injury through another’s negligence then it is only fair that you are entitled to be compensated for your losses. Following a proper medical diagnosis, you should seek to consult a specialist personal injury solicitor as soon as is practical to explain the circumstances of your claim. A specialist will be able to direct you to the amount of compensation that may be owed as well as the evidence needed to prove your claim. The only proof that you need yourself is that your injury would not have occurred but for the carelessness and negligence of another who is therefore legally responsible for your broken rib injury.
A broken rib also referred to as a fractured rib is a crack or break in one or more of the bones of the rib cage. It can be an extremely painful injury with limited treatment other than time and rest whilst in your own home. Often broken ribs can occur as a result of a road traffic accident else by a slip, trip or fall in a public place. Furthermore, although broken ribs are more often than not considered as too serious, some rib fractures can cause complications in your lungs especially if an accident involved a fall from height. Therefore, in all circumstances, it would be wise to consult a medical professional if you think that you may have a broken rib injury. However, if you have sustained a broken rib injury in an accident that was not your own fault then you may in fact have a claim for compensation against the negligent party.
Our team of claim specialists are on hand throughout the working week to answer any questions or help you understand the claims process.
Unfortunately as is the case in all personal injury complaints, broken rib compensation claims are decided on a case-by-case basis therefore there is no defined sum that can be expected. The severity of your broken rib injury alongside the pain and suffering endured by you will be the main determinants of your compensation offer. However, other financial considerations such as your current and future loss of earnings, medical costs and travel expenses will also be included in the final sum of compensation owed. In all cases, it is recommended to consult a specialist personal injury solicitor in the first instance as they can better advise you regarding the specifics of your own claim.
Following confirmation of your broken rib injury, you should consult a specialist personal injury solicitor who will advise you as to the merits of your case. You should explain the pain and suffering that you have endured since the accident and your subsequent injury. Specialist personal injury solicitors appreciate that a broken rib injury is one of the most debilitating types of complaint that can leave sufferers in a depressive state unable to undertake daily activities.
