ADXL362 Max Ratings

The data sheet shows a typical range of ±19g, however it doesn’t list a max operational.  We have a scenario where we'll see 50g's.  We have actually done some testing and seen some readings in one axis as high as ±25g. Does the accuracy go down after ±19g or are the readings incorrect after that point? Also, according to the max ratings it can handle up to 10,000g’s but I’m assuming that is just a pulse. If we exert a force of say 50g for 5 seconds, could that damage the accelerometer?
