One of the most common injuries following a car collision is a fractured rib. While this injury is not rare, it is not to be taken lightly. Rib fractures are extremely painful, and can cause other problems. The most commonly broken ribs are ribs 7 through ten, which are bottom ribs. A bottom rib fracture can but the victim at risk of injuring their diaphragm, and causing a diaphragmatic hernia. To add to the complications of a rib fracture, ribs need to flex during regular breathing, as the lungs expand and contract. Having broken ribs can make breathing an extremely painful process, and can make moving shoulders or arms on the side of the body with the broken rib extremely difficult.

Rib fractures are agonizing, harmful and unpleasant. A rib fracture can keep you out of work for weeks, even months, especially if your employment involves manual labor. If you were injured and suffered a rib fracture due to the negligence or incompetence of another, you need to ensure that you are compensated for lost wages and for the traumatic experience you have had to endure.
