What Is Blunt Force Trauma?
Blunt force trauma describes physical injuries sustained when a foreign object strikes some part of the body, like the head.
As a non-penetrating injury, blunt force trauma does not break the skin or present visible wounds. That can make it:
- Mild to severe in nature, with more forceful impacts causing more severe trauma
- Far more challenging to recognize and diagnose
What Causes Blunt Force Trauma?
Accidents and assaults are the two most common causes of blunt for trauma. In terms of accidents, those tend to include incidents like (but not limited to):
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- 18-wheeler accidents
- Falls, including slip and falls
- Falling objects or merchandise
- Equipment or machinery accidents
- Work accidents
Tragically, blunt force trauma is often the result of preventable accidents. Figuring out the underlying causes of those accidents is the key to:
- Determining the legal options and available remedies

- The event that caused their trauma occurred within the past 1 to 2 years (depending on whether an individual is in Louisiana or Texas, respectively).
