Accelerometer range to detect the accidents

Hello all :slight_smile:
Im doing a project to detect the accidents. According to the range of accelerometer the accident is identified and the message is send to the emergency contacts,near by hospitals and ambulance through the GSM and GPS module.
I want to mention the range of the accident also ,for example it is a mild accident and severe accident.
My question which type of accelerometer i should choose and how to mention the range.

Suppose you have the ultimate accelerometer, 0..100 G/s in 10000 steps.

How would you calculate the level of accident?
what formula to use?

He would need to measure acceleration and jerk. Using these values he could approximate the injury due to energy transfer.

@Chuck:
Thank you for your reply.
can yu tell me which type of accelerometer will be good for my project?
