I did a cab taco on a flat-down box once. Hurt a bit, but if it'd been a rail I think I'd be in a wheelchair. Scared me enough that I started looking for spine protectors the next day.

I've splatted on other occasions, nothing so dramatic, but at minimum the spine protector spreads the impact and provides a little padding. You can still have the wind knocked out of you, but that's minor.
