Car accident attorney explains what happens after you suffer a broken rib

You are stopped at the stoplight at Kellogg and Greenwich. The light turns green and you begin to pull out into the intersection. However, another driver, is texting on a cell phone and doesn’t see the light turn red and crashes into you. A common injury from this type of car wreck can be broken or fractured ribs. This is a very painful injury and can take weeks or months to heal.

Although most of the time, fractured ribs aren’t serious, they can be extremely painful. In more severe cases, a broken rib can puncture a lung or produce other internal injuries. Common signs that you may have fractured or broken ribs are if you are having difficulty breathing well or feel lightheaded. It’s extremely important you seek medical care immediately to rule out internal damage.

If you have suffered broken or fractured ribs from someone else’s negligence, you may deserve compensation for medical bills, occupational and physical therapy, ongoing medical care, medications or lost wages. In most cases, fractured ribs can’t be treated and the injured person will have to endure pain for many weeks.
