Abstract

The phenomenon of road traffic accidents is a global problem and is an active and growing phenomenon. The main factor contributing to road traffic accidents is the human factor. The main simple mechanisms that cause traumatic injuries in road accidents are: The impact mechanism, the most common mechanism of injuries; The fall mechanism is present when traumatic injuries are the result of contact with a rough plane such as soil or other vehicle; The design mechanism is a simple mechanism that targets both vehicle occupants and pedestrians; The limestone is the passage over the victim of the rolling stock of the vehicle; Hyperrendemia and / or hyperreflexia of the spine, this mechanism is frequently the one responsible for the determination of traumatic vertebral-medullary lesions, also called whiplash.

Keywords: mechanisms, phenomenon, the blow, traffic accidents, traumatic injuries
