Cracked ribs are usually considered a chest injury when it comes to calculating compensation amounts.
This injury can also be referred to as fractured ribs and there may be soft tissue damage alongside this type of injury. If you have experienced serious pain and disability over a number of weeks then you can expect to receive up to £2,800 in compensation.
How much compensation for cracked ribs will be considered alongside a number of factors including:
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, any loss of amenity will also be factored in. 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.
