Is her throat still hurting?  Tracheobronchial injuries are very rare.  It is possible her throat is just sore from hitting it on her neck.  

If you believe she did injure her trachea, have her see her doctor as soon as possible. Tracheobronical injuries are serious and need to be treated right away.  Early diagnosis is very important to help prevent complications.
