MO­TOR VE­HI­CLE AC­CI­DENT IS RE­LATED TO TWO TYPES OF SEVER­ITY – AC­CI­DENT SEVER­ITY AND IN­JURY SEVER­ITY. THE FOR­MER IN­CLUDES DAM­AGES TO THE VE­HI­CLE WHILE THE LATER REFERS TO THE BOD­ILY IN­JURIES (IN­JURY SUS­TAINED BY A PER­SON IN­VOLVED IN THE MO­TOR VE­HI­CLE AC­CI­DENT). NUM­BER AND THE SEVER­ITY OF IN­JURIES IN MO­TOR VE­HI­CLE AC­CI­DENT IS ONE OF THE IM­POR­TANT PARTS IN TRAF­FIC SAFETY EVAL­U­A­TION. THE AS­SESS­MENT OF IN­JURY SEVER­ITY IS THERE­FORE ES­SEN­TIAL AS IT IS ONE OF THE MOST IM­POR­TANT FIELDS OF IN­JURY PREVEN­TION.
