How Will My Cracked Ribs Claim Calculated?

Your rib injury claim will be considered in conjunction with general damages. This covers the length of your recovery period if there have been any long-term effects or permanent damage.

In addition, your solicitor will consider any loss of amenity. This is the part of a claim amount that reflects how your life has been affected by the accident or injury you have encountered. If you have been unable to work then there will be a loss of finance included in your claim and this is counted as special damages.

Other special damages are those where you have had to pay for something in relation to your injury, e.g. medical expenses or transport to medical appointments.
