- Traumatic Injury: When people are involved in an auto accident, they may be subjected to injuries that are considered "traumatic injuries". Traumatic injuries are a degree of injury that leave the victim with short-term injuries that are repairable and heal over time. While the pain and suffering may still be substantial, traumatic injuries do not typically last for long-term periods of time or diminish the quality of life for the injury victim past the normal healing period for the specific injuries sustained.
