What might you gain in compensation for a broken rib?
Accidents can result in many different types of injury, some of which are fairly minor and others that are serious. A broken or fractured rib can be painful, if not debilitating. Unfortunately, there is a wide range of different accidents which could potentially result in a broken rib, such as:
- A road accident, such as a car collision;
- An accident in the workplace, such as being struck by a moving vehicle; and
- A slip, trip or fall from height onto a hard surface.
You may be wondering about what you could gain when it comes to compensation for a broken rib. Compensation from an injury claim is calculated based on a number of different factors, including the exact nature of the injury, its severity and how long it may take you to recover. As a result, there is no specific set amount of compensation that you would receive from pursuing a claim.
However, it’s possible to get an estimate for the amount of compensation you can could gain, based on the circumstances of your accident. One way to do this is to use Accident Advice Helpline’s useful 30-second test, which is available for free on our website.
The 30-second test consists of some simple and straightforward questions, which should take no time at all to answer. When you’re done, an estimate for the compensation you could receive is calculated based on your answers and provided to you completely free of charge, and with no obligation for you to begin a claim no matter what the results are.
Compensation estimates cannot be guaranteed at this early stage of the process, so the next step is to get more information and advice from the experts in personal injury law, Accident Advice Helpline.
