Vehicles collide and kinetic forces are applied suddenly to the body. The body has a limited tolerance for these forces. In car accidents, the body can be damaged by impacting the vehicle's interior. These are some of the injuries that can be sustained in an automobile accident:
Brain injuries can occur from a direct blow to your head by an object, the interior of the car, or as a result a sudden acceleration caused by the change of velocity of the head. This causes the brain's Axons stretch to the point that they tear, also called "shearing".
Spinal cord injuries can result from the sudden jarring movement of the spine in a vehicle accident. Damage to the muscles, ligaments, and vertebrae around the spine or the disks and nerves within and around the spinal cord can cause neck injuries.
Chest injuries which can be caused by the pressure on the sternum from the seatbelt or impact with the steering wheel, especially if a seatbelt has been removed. These injuries can be reduced by using airbags.
Knee injuries which may occur when the knees strike the interior of the vehicle under the dashboard or because of hyper-extension of severe twisting of legs. These include fractures of the patella (kneecap) or tears to the meniscus and ligaments in the knee.
Shoulder injuries can occur from outstretched arms grasping the steering wheel. This can cause tears or damage to the rotator cords and tendons. Whiplash can also cause subacromial impingement syndrome.
If a person falls, trips, or slips on unsafe surfaces, severe injury can result, including:
Head injuries which can occur when the head impacts the ground forcibly and sometimes cause severe trauma.
Spinal cord injuries can be caused by either blunt trauma to the spinal cord as a result of an impact with ground or twisting movement from a fall or attempts to recover after a fall.
Hip and Pelvis injuries including fractures to the proximal or top part of the Femur or the Acetabulum or a portion (often the pubic ramus). It is possible for a hip dislocation to occur.
Knee injuries can occur directly from the knees striking the ground or by twisting or hyper-extending your legs. Fractures, dislocations, Anterior Cruciate Ligament injuries (ACL), Posterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries and Collateral Ligament Injuries as well as Meniscal Tears and Tendon Tears can all be considered injuries.
Bone fractures which can be caused by the body's impact on the ground, forcible twisting, or outstretched arms that a fall victim uses as a brace.
