The effects of a rib injury can range from short-term pain and inconvenience to far more serious complications. If you’ve been injured, our solicitors will strive to get you the rib injury compensation you deserve.
How To Make A Rib Injury Claim
Call us on
0800 056 4110 for your free initial consultation. This will involve some questions about how your injury happened, who you feel is at fault, and how your life has been affected. We’ll then assess your case and look at the evidence.
If we think you have a claim, we’ll approach the person or organisation you believe is at fault. If they accept responsibility, we’ll negotiate a compensation settlement for you that takes into account your pain, suffering and the impact on your life.
If we think you have a claim but the other party doesn’t admit responsibility, we’ll still fight for compensation for you – all the way to court if necessary.
We can help you to claim for:
Secondary damage such as a punctured lung.
Rib injuries can be extremely painful, and you may need to take time off work to recover. Generally, broken ribs need around four to six weeks to heal. In serious cases, we may be able to help you with interim compensation payments while you wait for your settlement, which help to cover ongoing costs such as travel to hospital appointments.
How Long Do You Have To Make A Rib Injury Claim?
The general time limits for rib injury claims are three years from the date of the injury. However, there are some exceptions, such as if you were abroad at the time or if you were injured in a criminal assault. We always advise you contact us as soon as possible to avoid running out of time.
How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Rib Injury?
There’s no fixed amount of compensation you will receive for a rib injury. All cases are unique, so we’ll look at your personal circumstances.
While the severity of your injury will be considered, we’ll also assess the following:
Long-term effects such as psychological trauma
Secondary illnesses such as chest infections
Loss of earnings.
When applicable, we can also help you with interim compensation payments, to cover costs such as travel to hospital appointments.
No Win No Fee Rib Injury Claims
Most of our rib injury claims are ‘no win, no fee’. This means that yours and your opponent’s legal fees are covered if you’re unsuccessful*. If you’re successful, your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs. Any costs not paid by your opponent will be taken from your final compensation.
