Child Injury Is A Worldwide, U.S. and CT Issue

Posted by Richard P. Hastings | Aug 22, 2012 | 0 Comments

Worldwide, more than 2,200 children and teenagers each day die from an accident related injury which could have been prevented. The World Health Organization further reports that the five leading causes of accidental injuries include: road traffic injuries, drowning, burns, falls and poisoning. The great tragedy is that many of these accidental deaths could have been prevented had the proper safety or precautionary measures been taken.

In the United States in 2008, 4,643 children ages 14 and under died from various injuries. 6,178,000 children ages 14 and under in the US sustained unintentional nonfatal injuries treated in emergency departments in 2009.

Implementing proper safety measures can drastically reduce your child's risk of injury, but accidents still can and do occur. The time immediately following the injury or death of a loved one can be extremely stressful and difficult. This difficulty is only amplified when you are dealing with your own child.
