Recovering Damages After a Broken Ribs Accident

Sadly, the bills are going to keep rolling in even if you have to sit at home immobile while recovering from broken ribs. That’s why car crash victims need someone to help take the pressure off by investigating the accident and handling communication with insurance.

The end goal of those actions is to assist in your financial recovery alongside your physical healing. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, you could seek a full and fair settlement from an insurance provider, or file a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party who caused your broken ribs in the first place.

After determining who is liable for your damages and acquiring the necessary evidence to prove that person caused the broken ribs, your compensation may include elements like:

  • Any medical costs such as the ER visit, hospital stay after the accident, CT or MRI scans, surgeries, medication for pain management, and so on.
  • Lost wages covering missed income during the recovery period, whether you are a salaried or hourly employee, self-employed, etc.
  • Physical or occupational therapy after the crash.
  • Property damage to your vehicle during the accident.
  • Various non-economic damages for your emotional suffering, physical pain, and loss of consortium.
