What Are the Statistics Regarding Child Injury?

Below are important facts and statistics on child injuries:

  • Male children generally have a higher injury rate than female children.
  • Falls are the leading cause of child injury, sending approximately 2.8 million children to the emergency room each year.
  • Children between the ages of 0 and 9 are more likely to be injured by being struck by or against an object, bitten by an animal, or stung by an insect.
  • Children between the ages of 10 and 14 are more likely to be injured by being struck by or against an object and overexertion.
  • Children between the ages of 15 and 19 are more likely to be injured in motor vehicle accidents.
  • Suffocation is the leading cause of injury for infants less than 1 year of age.

It is very important that you watch your child closely in order to prevent him or her from being injured. If your child is a teen, remind him on a frequent basis about safe behavior, even if it doesn't seem like he’s listening; he is.

The Ugly Truth About Child Injury

As much as we don’t want to think or hear about a child being hurt, we can’t avoid the fact that children are extremely vulnerable and serious injuries do happen to them. As a parent, you do everything in your power to protect your children and keep them safe. Unfortunately, that is not always enough. Let’s look at some cases where negligence led to the injury of children:

  • As a resident of the San Diego area, you probably remember the incident where a 70-year-old grandmother accidently ran her car into ten people - nine children, including an 11-month-old - outside a Del Mar Heights elementary school. Fortunately, the most serious injury was a broken leg that a 5-year-old suffered. While the grandmother was not criminally charged, she may certainly face civil charges for the recovery of medical costs, and more from parents whose children were injured.
  • A truly tragic occurrence took place in Seal Beach when a reportedly "drugged" driver caused a chain reaction collision that resulted in the death of a 7-year-old girl and serious injury to her 13-year-old sister. The 36-year-old driver who caused the accident has been charged with gross vehicular manslaughter, but he may also face civil charges for wrongful death and serious injuries.
  • It’s not always a negligent driver that causes injury to a child. A child can also be injured by a defective product. Car seat manufacturer Combi USA recently issued a recall for certain models of its car seats. Government studies have found that these seats put small children at an increased risk for chest injuries. If a child was injured due to a design or manufacturing flaw in this product, the car seat’s manufacturer could be held liable for that child’s injuries.

These are just a few real-world examples of negligence causing injury to a child. Unfortunately, there are many ways for a child to be injured: falls from playground equipment, swimming pool accidents, trips and falls, sports injuries, and more.
