What is Trauma?
Physical trauma is a serious injury to the body, and we group it into two categories.
Unintentional injury occurs without intent such as people getting into a car accident or falling off a ladder. Intentional injury means purposeful violence, either self-inflicted such as suicide or inflicted by someone else such as assault.
The most common trauma cases we see at the Lee Health Trauma Center are unintentional – car crashes and falls.
Trauma kills more people between the ages of 1 and 44 than any other disease or illness. These accidents and injuries have a profound, lifelong impact on individuals, families, and communities.
