Worse how? Your circulation would be blocked and/or segmented to pieces, which is what happens in an impact, too. Your organs would be mashed, penetrated by concrete, etc. etc. but again nothing unique there, in any sense that would matter. You'd die, in great pain, but you usually do.
Except with transporters, you don't always die. Sometimes you wind up getting mixed together with your best friend, or turned into children, or accidentally duplicated, or split into a good/evil version of yourself, or accidentally transplanted into an alternate dimension, or materialize inside-out. It's not the INJURIES that are potential hazards, it's the other weird shit that can happen to you in transport that simply cannot happen in a taxi cab.
