Also, not all injuries from an accident are physical. Injuries can be mental or emotional as well.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the number of car crash injuries has remained more or less the same despite the number of car crash fatalities decreasing over the years. In fact, the Center for Disease Control notes that Americans spend one million days in the hospital each year for injuries related to automotive accidents.
