What's the leading cause of injury for kids 14 years old and younger? | DENENA | POINTS

Fall injury. Injuries from falling are the top cause of hospitalization from injuries among children ages 14 and under. They’re also a top cause of injury hospitalizations in adults aged 25 and older. They’re also the primary cause of unintentional death by injury for adults aged 45 and above. Especially in adults aged 65 and above, our amusement park injury attorneys emphasize that a serious fall injury can lead to debilitation, dementia, and death.

 In all ages, fall injury is a leading cause of bone fractures and traumatic brain injury. The U.S. CDC says that 1.7 million people each year suffer a TBI. Our amusement park injury attorneys point out that this means there are 3 TBI victims every minute.

 Fall-related injuries cost tens of billions of dollars each year in the United States. Recreational sports, amusement park rides, water parks, playground equipment, and stairs are just some of the major causes of fall-related injuries. The inflatable Banzai water slide, for instance, was recalled beacuse of defects that led to serious fall injuries and fatalities in multiple victims. Just tripping and falling during a walk causes thousands of serious injuries in adults each year.
