Rib Injury Claim

Rib injuries can range from cracked ribs to damage to internal organs. Broken or cracked ribs can be extremely painful and often take up to six weeks to repair themselves, during which time the treatment is limited as they cannot easily be reached.  

A broken rib can cause a lung puncture, which makes it very hard to breathe. Your liver and spleen could also be at risk of damage from a broken rib. 

If you have suffered a personal injury, True Solicitors LLP could help you with your rib injury claim. 

Our cases are undertaken on a no-win, no-fee basis so there’s no upfront cost or financial risk to you.  

Call us on 0344 854 7000 to discuss your rib injury claim, or submit your details and we’ll call you back at a time suitable for you.

Recovery from a rib injury can be painful, especially in cases with complications. 

What are the common types of rib injuries? 

The most common rib injuries are as follows:  

  • Rib fractures – A break or multiple breaks in the rib cage, which can then lead to bruising of the muscles and ligaments surrounding the site of injury. The lungs and other organs underneath the ribs can also be injured 
  • Flail chest – This is when a piece of the rib cage is separated from the rest of the rib cage structure- typically at least two ribs 
  • Splenic rupture – Injuries to the ribs may result in a splenic rupture, which involves the outer capsule being split and the spleen then bleeding into the abdominal cavity 

What effects can a rib injury have? 

Damage to your ribs could cause breathing trouble, bruising and swelling, pain which is excavated by coughing, sneezing, etc., tenderness, etc.

  • Loss of income

How much could a rib injury claim be worth?
