Most of the trauma cases that are registered on daily basis are MAJOR (PHYSICAL) TRAUMA. Major trauma is an injury that has the potential to cause prolong disability or even death. There are many events that can trigger physical trauma; like, falling down, being in a motor vehicle accident, getting stabbed or penetrated by sharp or blunt objects and projectiles. Injuries and physical trauma can happen anywhere on human body but most of the damage affects the skull, neck, nose, and chest.
