Road traffic accident solicitor explains how to determine the amount of compensation you can claim for a broken collar bone and fractured ribs in a RTA.
Broken Collar Bone Road Traffic Accident Victim Question
I was driving my car in Cornwall on the way to Southampton when I was hit by another car driver. The police attended and the other driver admitted liability.
An ambulance was called and I was taken to hospital where I was diagnosed with a broken collar bone and fractured ribs.
How much compensation can I claim for a broken collar bone and fractured ribs in a road traffic accident?
Road traffic accident solicitor response
The amount of compensation you can claim for your broken collar bone and fractured ribs depends on two factors:
1. Proving that a third party was negligent in causing the RTA which lead to your injuries, which not be too problematic given that liability was conceded by the other driver in the presence of the police;
2. Showing in medical evidence from an independent orthopaedic surgeon the exact nature of the broken collar bone and fractured rib injuries both in severity and time period of recovery with a comment as to any possible persisting problems.
