- In accidents
Getting into a car accident can have countless severe effects on the human body. The physical force of a collision can violently injure your body, leading to injuries and sometimes even death. Victims of car accidents suffer from limb injuries, head traumas, spinal cord injuries, and other injuries depending on the collision.
As a driver, when you get behind the wheel, you are trusting yourself and other drivers to be safe in order to prevent such injuries. But accidents still happen, and what can happen to your body can be devastating.

How Injuries Are Caused
Sometimes understanding how injuries are caused will help you understand the extent of the injuries. Scientifically, when you are driving or riding in a vehicle, both the passenger and the vehicle have what is known as kinetic energy. When the driver presses the brakes, this energy is transferred to the brakes, ensuring a gradual stop.
However, if the car comes to a sudden stop, such as in an unexpected crash or a collision with another vehicle, the body will absorb this energy. When this amount of energy enters the body and the body absorbs the energy, it can lead to catastrophic injuries.
With the advancements in safety technology today, many car manufacturers have added protections in the vehicle, such as side airbags, which work to absorb the kinetic energy during the impact of a collision. But even with these added safety features, your body must absorb a lot of unexpected kinetic energy, causing injuries.
Damage Caused To The Body
After a car accident, many people are never the same. Depending on the severity and the speed of the accident, devastating damage can be incurred. Sometimes a lot of this damage is repairable by skilled medical professionals, but sometimes the damage is too severe to be repaired, and limbs must be amputated.
In the unfortunate case where an individual did not survive the collision, the body is likely in a damaged and broken state. In these cases, the body will be released to the medical examiner to allow for any testing that may need to occur to help determine the cause of the crash. After the examination is done, the remains will be released to the family via the funeral home for preparations. In many cases, if the body is damaged beyond recognition, the family will choose a closed-casket funeral or direct cremation. If the family chooses an open-casket funeral, the individual preparing the body will do their best to reconstruct any damage sustained to give the family closure.
