The Three Phases of a Car Crash
There are three separate stages of a car crash:
- The car collision: As a car crushes after impact, it absorbs some of the force of the collision. For instance at 30 mph a car hitting a non-moving object will crumple approximately two feet.
- The human collision: At the moment of impact, passengers in the car are still traveling at the vehicle's original speed. As the car stops, passengers continue to be hurled forward until they come into contact with something. For example, front seat passengers are often hit by rear seat passengers, which can lead to catastrophic injuries such as head injuries and spinal cord injuries.
- The internal collision: Even after the human body comes to a complete stop, internal organs are still moving. Suddenly, these organs slam into other organs or the skeletal system, often causing serious injury or death.
We Will Take Care of Everything
Because of the serious injuries caused by these accidents, recovery can be very expensive. We will thoroughly investigate your car accident to identify who is at fault and seek maximum compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
We will take care of all your legal and logistical issues, such as car insurance and car damage, so that you can focus on getting better. For more information on car crashes, visit our Causes of Car Crashes and What You Should Do After a Car Accident pages.
