When vehicle occupants are involved in an accident, there is a great possibility of various types of injury. Although, the injuries are organized into two categories:
1. Impact Injuries
These injuries occur when a vehicle occupant hits any part of the vehicle’s interior or is thrown outside the car onto the ground or other objects. For example, if you were hit from the side of your car and your head hit your window, you would suffer from an impact injury.
2. Penetrating Injury
This type of injury occurs when a loose object flying around a vehicle strikes an occupant. For example, if you got in a car accident driving to work in the morning with your coffee cup in hand and it smacked you in the head during the accident.
Both types of injury can be severe, resulting in long-term consequences or even death. If you have been in a car accident and sustained injuries, you must seek help from a medical professional.
