Case Studies Involving the Use and Non-Use of Seatbelts 861091

This paper presents the case study results of several actual motor vehicle accidents which occurred in the western U.S. Each case was analyzed to determine the characteristics of impact to the vehicle and the resulting occupant injuries. The most frequent injury was facial laceration from impacting the windshield. The main benefit of restraint systems lies in their ability to reduce or prevent contact between the occupant and the interior during the crash.
