Sent me to the ER

I was wearing these when I hit my landing sideways. Upon impact, they ripped in multiple places and then shifted halfway down my arm sending me to the ER.

Did the elbow pads send you to the ER or hitting the landing sideways.

If they had stayed in place and didn't rip to pieces I would have been fine.

I think the better question is, would you have been worse off if you hadn't been wearing them at all? If you hadn't been wearing them, would your elbow have been the one torn to pieces (more than it was)?
