Three days ago I fell off a ladder and landed on the corner of an end table. I've been having sever pain with deep breathing and have a chronic cough, but have not yet went to a doctor.
Yes, blunt chest trauma could induce a pulmonary embolism. If you are having this symptoms you should go to the emergency room to be checked out.

You need to be seen right away! You could have cracked a rib and punctures a lung or something!! Go to the ER today!!! Yes a PE could happen after a chest trauma!
