Vehicle occupant ejections occur when a driver or passenger are partially or fully thrown from the vehicle. These ejections can occur in a variety of vehicle accidents. If a person is ejected from the vehicle, the person is often seriously injured, and in some cases fatally injured.
Perhaps the best way to avoid being ejected during a vehicle accident is to wear a seat belt.
