Injuries send over nine million U.S. children to the emergency room or their doctors' offices each year. Injuries are the number one cause of death among children over age one and also the number one cause of developmental disabilities, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The real tragedy is that many of these injuries and the deaths or disabilities they cause could have been avoided if a person or company had acted with reasonable care for the safety of others.

Common Child Injuries

  • Car accident injuries. Car accidents are still the main cause of injury and death among kids in the U.S., according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Car accidents are also a leading cause of injury and death among teens, who are just learning to drive.
  • Fireworks-related injuries. Fireworks cause burns and other injuries to both children and adults each summer, but they are especially dangerous for children, who are less likely to understand the risk of fire.
  • Playground injuries. An improperly maintained playground can cause injuries from damaged equipment or unsafe landing surfaces. Even on well-maintained playgrounds, watching children carefully is key in preventing injuries.
  • Poisoning. Kids under age six are particularly at risk for unintentional poisoning because they do not understand the dangers of certain household chemicals. Teens also face the risk of poisoning.
  • Fire. Children under four are at the highest risk for injury or death in a house fire, but this risk threatens all the members of the family.
  • Traumatic brain injury. Falls and blows to the head send 400,000 U.S. children to the hospital each year. Severe traumatic brain injuries can cause paralysis or permanent cognitive, motor, and/or mood disorders.
  • Drowning. After car accidents, drowning is the second leading cause of injury or death for children ages 0 to 14. For every child who dies in a water accident, three more visit the emergency room for water-related injuries.
  • Dog bites. Dog bites are not often fatal, but they do send tens of thousands of children to the emergency room each year.

Because the risk of injury to children can be so high, many parents take special care to avoid injury to children in their homes. Common-sense safety measures include installing and testing smoke alarms, placing guards on staircases and other places where falls might occur, installing locked fencing around a swimming pool, and storing cleaning supplies and other chemicals in locked cabinets kids cannot reach. In addition, most organizations that work with children have high safety standards and take even the smallest injuries seriously.

Unfortunately, child injuries can happen almost anywhere - on the playground, at the beach, at a friend's house, or while traveling between activities. When an accident is caused by a person's or company's failure to use reasonable care, the family may benefit from seeking compensation from those whose negligence resulted in the child's injuries, especially if the injuries have left the child with life-long disabilities.
