The Cost of Catastrophic Injuries
Accidents happen every day. The majority of injuries people sustain in accidents are relatively minor and non-life threatening. Bumps, scrapes, bruises, strains and broken bones are amongst the more common types of accident-related injuries.
When an individual sustains a serious head injury, brain injury, spinal cord injury, birth injury or other potentially life-altering injury, it is termed a catastrophic injury.

Effects That a Catastrophic Injury Can Have on Your Life
There are many physical, financial and emotional costs associated with catastrophic injuries. Tasks that we may take for granted, such as eating, taking a shower or getting dressed, may be physically impossible to an individual who has suffered a catastrophic injury. The financial costs related to a catastrophic injury can easily reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars within months.
That does not even take into consideration the physical therapy and long term care that may be needed. The emotional toll of a catastrophic injury may be substantial and may require life-long therapy or other forms of treatment. Family, friends and loved ones can also feel the emotional and financial toll when a person they love has been left fighting to survive a serious injury.
You can significantly improve your chances of recovering the maximum compensation for your injuries by getting help from an Atlanta catastrophic injury attorney who has a track record of success in serious injury cases.
Common Catastrophic Injury: Broken Ribs
According to the Mayo Clinic, the most common cause of broken ribs is intense trauma to the chest area - a fall, a motor vehicle accident, or impact during contact sports. In most cases, broken ribs will heal on their own in one or two months, but they should always be evaluated by a medical professional.
Symptoms and Treatment of Broken Ribs
Breathing deeply is often cited as the most painful part of having a broken rib. In fact, many doctors will cite pain when breathing as a symptom of a broken rib.
Other common broken rib symptoms include:
- Rib tenderness
- Pain that gets worse when your bend or twist your body
- Sharp pain while breathing
- The feeling of bone scraping against bone under the skin
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you need to see a doctor right away. Broken ribs can lead to several medical complications, with the risk of complications increasing as more than one rib is broken. Complications most likely affect the vital organs that are protected by the rib cage. The sharp, broken part of the injured rib can tear or puncture organs like the lung, spleen, liver and kidney.
If you are suffering from a broken rib that resulted from a car, truck or motorcycle accident, you might not be responsible for paying for your medical expenses.
