An extensive wound or trauma is a severe damage to the soft tissues in the skin. It is a medical condition in which the soft tissues of the skin sustain injury or break down. These severe wounds or injuries can occur after accidents, or due to violence. These accidents may occur at home, or typify road accidents. It can be a self-inflicted wound or somebody else causing skin injury to you. There can be deep cuts by a knife, skin abrasions from metal or glass, skin crushing, animal bites, or bullet injury.
