Drivers and passengers in a car that collides with another motor vehicle or a stationary object keep moving forward as the vehicle suddenly stops. Their bodies slam into a part of their vehicle, such as a restraint device (seatbelt or airbag) or the steering wheel, dashboard, windshield, the back of a seat, etc. Any of these objects, even the ones meant to protect people in an auto accident, can cause injury.
Other times, car occupants are hit by unsecured cargo that becomes airborne in a crash. Occupants of a car or truck may also be thrown about the inside of the vehicle and injured, such as in a rollover crash, or be thrown from the vehicle.
Any part of the body can be injured in a car accident. Multiple studies of motor vehicle crashes have shown the following impact injuries to be the most common among car, truck and motorcycle accident victims:
