The vehicles involved in an accident don’t have to be going at a high rate of speed in order for occupants to suffer from auto accident injuries. In fact, research shows that injuries can be maximized in crashes where the vehicle is only going 10-15 mph because all of the impact is transmitted to the person in the vehicle since the vehicle won’t begin to crush until impact is higher than 15 or 20 mph.
