The rib cage performs a vital function in protecting the lungs and heart, and when you break a rib there is a risk that it can cause serious damage to these organs – most commonly puncturing a lung. In the event that you sustain a serious injury of this nature, an ambulance should be summoned immediately and, when your broken ribs are due to somebody else´s negligence, you should use the time that you wait for it to arrive by getting the details of any witnesses to your accident in order to support a broken ribs injury compensation claim.
Usually however, broken ribs are usually more of a nuisance inasmuch as the only treatment for them is rest and immobilisation. Nonetheless, you should still consult with a medical practitioner to ensure that the break or fracture is set properly in order to heal without future complications. Although you may feel that any visit to your doctor is unnecessary, his notes on your medical records are also necessary to ensure you submit a comprehensive claim for broken ribs injury compensation.
Making a Broken Ribs Injury Compensation Claim
Making a broken ribs injury compensation claim is always best done with the assistance of an experienced personal injury claims solicitor. A solicitor will ensure that your application for broken ribs injury is completed correctly and submitted to the Injuries Board Ireland with all the attachments required to claim the maximum amount of special damages.
A solicitor is also indispensible should the party responsible for your injuries deny their liability or claim that you contributed to your injuries by your own actions. In these cases, the Injuries Board Ireland will decline to assess your broken ribs injury compensation claim and issue you with an authorisation to pursue your claim for broken ribs injury compensation through the courts.
A further reason for using an experienced personal injury claims solicitor to guide you through the claims procedure is that, frequently, you will be approached by the negligent party´s insurance company offering an early settlement for your broken ribs injury compensation claim. Often their initial offers are inappropriate to your injuries, but a solicitor will be able to negotiate with them and ensure that you receive a fair and adequate amount of broken ribs injury compensation.
