Occupant Ejection Cases

Ejection or partial ejection can turn a survivable crash into a fatal accident. Your best bet at survival and minimizing injury is to be held securely in the vehicle during an accident. Ejection can throw you into other objects or into the path of traffic. Occupant ejection is often the result of vehicle defects.

Defects which can cause ejection
Your vehicle should be designed and built with properly functioning parts to keep you securely in place during a crash. Defects and malfunctions which can cause ejection or partial ejection include:

  • Seat belt failure
  • Roof crush
  • Door latch failure

Roof crush can cause the windows and doors to burst, and it can cause some type of seat belts to fail. Either one can result in full or partial ejection. Door latch failure allows the door to fly open during a crash. Seat belt unlatching can allow you to be fully ejected. Seat belt malfunction which does not involve unlatching, but allows slack in the belt, can cause partial ejection.

Dangers of occupant ejection
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) ejection triples your chance of death in an accident.

Ejection can cause a vehicle occupant to:

  • Strike objects outside of the vehicle
  • Be run over by other traffic
  • Be crushed by the original vehicle

Partial ejection leaves you hanging out of the vehicle, but still attached to the vehicle, being tossed around and possibly crushed, ground along the pavement, or swung and smashed into other vehicles and objects.
Ejection injuries include:

  • Amputation
  • Decapitation
  • Brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Internal injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Paralysis
  • Severe abrasions and lacerations
  • Death

Ejection is possible in any type of accident, but more likely to occur and to cause serious injuries or death in rollovers.
