This number varies slightly depending on the year, state, etc, but most research indicates that broken rib car accident settlement averages range between $10,000 and $15,000. These numbers are also skewed by larger settlements that can include more serious injuries like punctured lungs, internal bleeding, or organ damage. In most car accident claims, a broken rib payout will include a few thousand dollars in medical treatments, and a week or two of missed work, depending on the severity of the broken ribs from the auto accident. 

The wild card here is the pain & suffering multiplier. If the broken ribs are serious enough to keep a victim from playing with their kids, being intimate with their spouse, or watching a funny movie, the pain & suffering multiple could push the car accident settlement amount over the average amount.
