Unique Dangers of Side Impact Collisions
Most vehicles are equipped with seat belts, air bags, crumple zones and other safety features designed to withstand front or rear-end collisions. However, when it comes to side impact crashes, there is often little to shield the occupants along the left and right side of the vehicle other than the doors and windows.
According to reports conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), side impact crashes are more likely to cause injuries to the head, neck and spine than front impact or rear end collisions. Studies have found that the front of most automobiles can withstand at least five times more energy than the sides.
