In brief: Depends on age

Injuries sustained in motor vehicle accident are dependent on many factors: type of collision, speed, car make, car seat? High speed impact can result in severe, life threatening injuries.
The very young are much more flexible and can suffer head, spine trauma quite easily besides fractures. Lacerations and abrasions. Any change in behavior after an accident requires immediate attention.
