A laceration is a cut or tears in the skin. Sometimes it can be a catastrophic injury, and other times it heals with few medical complications. Piercings and punctures are similar to lacerations, but usually involve clamping down on a body part, with deeper penetration into the body.

And as weird as it sounds, overexertion, cutting, and piercing are common injuries faced by people in L.A. When you think about it, just living and commuting in the city lends itself to these types of injuries. An overexerted biker can be thrown and impaled on a fixed or moving object.
For example, all manner of objects like metal poles, glass shards, and barriers. But of course, piercings can be done at a tattoo parlor, or they can be due to assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. In fact, a piercing of the skin due to a dog attack raises questions of strict liability.
You can probably imagine in your head all the ways your body could be cut open and penetrated by twisted metal, a sharp corner, or canine fangs sinking into your ankle as you run away in fear.
