Steve is complaining of 8/10 pain on his left leg, it is clearly deformed, is a potential fracture or dislocation. This is not a life threatening injury but a major distracting injury.
One of the patient’s main injuries is the 12 cm contusion on his left axial/anterior chest with 8/10 pain.
When excessive blunt force trauma is applied to the chest wall above the body’s tolerance the musculoskeletal system protecting the vital organs will fail. “This blunt trauma can lead to fail chest syndrome”...(Aaron MR at el 2001), pulmonary contusion, heamothorax or pneumothorax and

The first rib and manubrium is fixed to each other and move as one. The first rib is short and protected by the clavicle. Fracture of this rib indicates a considerable application of force to the thoracic wall.
Luckily there is no visible sighting of flail chest; Flail chest occurs when a series of adjacent ribs are fractured in at least 2 consecutive places, both anteriorly and posterior. “This section of the chest wall becomes dislodged from the main structure and it moves during spontaneous inspiration/experation. The physiological impact of a flail chest depends on multiple factors, including the size of the flail segment and internal damage”... Davignon, K., Kwo, J., & Bigatello, L. M. (2004).
