We are here to help you through this difficult time.

Injuries are the leading cause of death for kids, and falls are the leading cause of injury. Children ages 14 and under account for one-third of all fall-related visits to hospital emergency rooms. In 2003, nearly 285,600 children ages 14 and under were treated in the US for bicycle-related injuries. Nearly half (47 percent) of children ages 14 and under hospitalized for bicycle-related injuries.

Drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury-related death among children ages one to 14. The majority of drownings and near-drownings occur in residential swimming pools and in open water sites.  However, children can drown in as little as one inch of water.
