As all cars and all car accidents are unique and individual, there is no such thing as a “typical” injury from a car accident. There are those which are most common and those for which it is always recommended to seek medical advice after a car accident in Pontypool. However, there are no guaranteed or almost always present injuries.
There are also some injuries which are less common now than they might have been in the past. This is because the changing shape and safety features of cars and vehicles means that these injuries become less likely. Crushing, for example, used to be far more common than it is now.
This is because the framework of cars has been reinforced significantly meaning in the face of an accident, a car is less likely to concertina.
Despite the fact that they are less likely to occur, crushing is still a very real danger in the onset of an accident. If a car is hit in the front, rear or the side, the car may be squashed. In turn, the internal features of the vehicle, such as the seats, the dashboard and steering wheel may cause the vehicle inhabitants to become trapped or squashed.
Crushing injuries may cause severe bleeding, broken bones, or even loss of limb.
In any event, the emergency services may need to depend upon specialist equipment to reach, free and treat the victim.
