Rib injury compensation amounts

The amount of compensation you could receive will vary from person to person. This is because each claim for injuries to the chest and ribs will be different, with different injuries of different severity and different circumstances leading to different compensation levels being awarded.

Rib injuries can range in their complexity and therefore, the amount of compensation a person could be entitled to. A mild rib injury like a fracture for example could be valued at up to £5,320. A severe rib injury that leaves the person with serious, permanent damage to a lung could be entitled to claim between £100,670 – £150,110.

Use our rib injury compensation calculator below to estimate the amount of compensation you may receive for your rib injury. Once you have calculated your potential compensation, call us and speak to one of our personal injury solicitors about commencing your claim.

What types of rib injury can I claim compensation for?

Rib injuries can occur in a number of different ways and can result in shortness of breath, chest pain, pain in the abdomen or shoulder or even a fever. Accurately assessing the severity of your rib injury and how it has affected your life will be fundamental to the success of your rib injury compensation claim, as your financial settlement will depend largely on how much long-term pain and/or disability you suffer as a result of your broken ribs. The severity of a rib injury can vary tremendously, from someone being in pain for only a few weeks to developing lung complications.

Fractured ribs / broken ribs

A broken rib, cracked rib or fractured rib is a crack or break in one of the bones in the rib cage. Fractured ribs are usually the result of a blow to the chest, which might be sustained by a fall or as a result of a car accident. A broken rib could also be caused by severe coughing, although this is more likely if there is weakness in the ribs caused by a bone disease like osteoporosis. Rib fractures caused by minor injuries can usually be treated at home, but severe chest injuries caused by falling from heights, major road accidents, or as a result of being crushed need to be treated at an A & E department. Sometimes, severe rib fractures can cause complications in one or both lungs.
