Anyone who has ever broken a rib will tell you that it is one of the most painful and debilitating of injuries. Due to the force involved in most tractor-trailer truck and car accidents on South Dakota roads, broken ribs often result.

Some of the symptoms of broken ribs in a South Dakota truck accident include:

  • Sharp pain while breathing;
  • Extreme pain in chest;
  • Tenderness in ribs to touch;
  • A "crunchy" feeling of bone under skin.

If you feel any of these symptoms, or believe that you may have fractured a rib in a wreck, it is absolutely crucial that you go to the nearest emergency room to get checked out. The ribs protect some of your most crucial organs, and any blunt force in this area could have caused internal damage.

Take Pain Seriously After an Accident

If your accident was caused by a negligent truck driver, you may be eligible to recover damages for your related costs. Medical bills, treatment, medicine, and lost wages from being unable to work can quickly pile up. You don't want to be left holding the bill for someone else's irresponsible behavior.

For more information about your legal rights, we strongly advise that you contact an attorney who is experienced in these types of cases. An aggressive South Dakota personal injury lawyer will fight against the insurance companies on your behalf, giving you the best possible chance at earning the maximum amount of financial compensation.
