The average settlement for broken ribs in a car accident is difficult to estimate because the severity of the injury, the victim’s ability to recover, and the percentage of liability will vary. Typically, settlement amounts for broken ribs and similar injuries will include financial coverage of medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other forms of recoverable damages.
Trying to assess the financial impact of a car accident alone is often difficult, given the legal and financial complexities of these cases. Working with a lawyer from our law firm can help you get the answers you are looking for without causing further stress. When our legal team takes you on as a client, we will address your concerns, answer your questions, and negotiate for a settlement on your behalf.

Pursuing Recoverable Damages for Broken Ribs After a Car Accident
Broken ribs are common in traffic accidents. However, they can vary in severity depending on where the break occurred and the victim’s ability to heal. For example, broken arms or legs, while serious, could heal in most cases without causing further issues. On the other hand, spinal cord injuries and head injuries can cause secondary damage that may be permanent, including paralysis or traumatic brain injuries.
Whether your broken bones were caused by someone else’s drunk driving or another act of recklessness, you may qualify to seek compensation for your losses from the party responsible. Some potential types of damages that you may recover after a car accident include the following:
- Emergency medical intervention if you received treatment at the scene
- Wages and benefits you missed while out of work
- Property damage to your vehicle
- Assistive medical devices, such as crutches
- Surgeries, X-rays, and other medical procedures
- Prescription medication
- In-home medical care
- Mental anguish

Navigating the State’s Personal Injury Laws

Constructing Your Case Against the Other Driver
Seeking compensation after a car accident with the help of our firm often begins with an investigation into the other driver’s liability. Reckless driving, distracted driving, and drowsy driving are just a few examples of irresponsible acts that may pin liability on another party.
We will look to the role of other drivers, as well as road and weather conditions when assessing liability. This process will involve collecting evidence such as witness reports, photos, and videos. From here, our legal team will negotiate with the parties connected to your case as we seek to recover all forms of compensation that the liable party may owe you.
