    Can you obtain compensation for cracked ribs?

    Although a broken rib isn’t always considered a serious injury, it is likely to cause a lot of pain. Whilst most people with a fractured or broken rib won’t experience complications, it is possible that a more serious injury may arise as a result of the harm you’ve suffered so you should seek medical help as quickly as possible.

    A broken rib can cause a puncture in your lung, for example, and this could result in a life-threatening medical emergency. By accessing medical help quickly, doctors can diagnose your injury and confirm that you’re not at risk of complications occurring.

    In addition to this, they can prescribe appropriate medication which should help to reduce the amount of pain you’re in.

    Claiming compensation with injury lawyers in Leigh

    If you’ve experienced a broken rib as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault, injury lawyers in Leigh could help you to take legal action against the person or company responsible. Unfortunately, this type of injury can take quite a while to heal and you may be inconvenienced whilst you’re recovering.

    You may be unable to work, for example, and it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to drive as your mobility could be limited by the pain. Due to this, a broken or fractured rib can disrupt your lifestyle quite considerably.
