What causes a hip dislocation in a car accident?
A hip can become dislocated during many kinds of accidents, including falls from high places and motorcycle or motor vehicle accidents, which are quite common. When this injury occurs in a head-on car crash, it is often nicknamed a “dashboard dislocation,” because it happens when the knee strikes the dashboard. Alternatively, a direct hit to the hip area or to the knee while the hip is flexed can cause a dislocation.
Hip dislocations are very serious and require immediate medical attention or permanent damage can take place.
