Identifying the symptoms of a chest injury can be easy. Usually, the victim will be challenged when they attempt to breathe. Here, the chest will fail to expand as usual. The ribs will produce some crunching sounds, and the victim will feel pain when coughing, or they will sometimes cough up blood.
Another symptom is that a section of the chest wall could fail to move when the person is breathing. The chest segment might move the opposite direction to the other segment of the chest wall. There can also be an internal injury to the victim.
