If you've been hurt in a slip and fall accident, New York and New Jersey property owners and managers may be liable for your injuries. However, in order to recover the payment that you deserve, you need to seek medical attention and document your injuries and the impact that the injuries are having on your life.
If you experience any of the following symptoms, then your injury may be more significant than bruised or cracked ribs. Symptoms of broken ribs, which are a serious and potentially life threatening medical condition include*:
- Significant pain, especially when you take a deep breath.
- Pain that worsens when you press on the injury or twist or turn your body.
People with osteoporosis or cancerous lesions in their ribs may be more likely to suffer a broken rib, though the injury can impact anyone.
