Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

Yes you have been told correctly. You CANNOT get hernia from car accident.

You get hernia if you have any issues that increases the abdominal pressure for a long duration of time. It could be chronic cough, chronic constipation, fluid in the abdominal cavity, heavy weight lifting, difficulty in urination and even obesity.

I hope that answers your question.
