What Leads to Child Injuries?
Children are very susceptible to injury and require careful adult supervision. Unfortunately, many children suffer injuries in preventable accidents, resulting in sometimes lifelong implications. Common causes of child injuries include the following.
Motor Vehicle Collisions: Children who are in the vehicle during an accident can suffer from serious injuries, especially if they do not have the proper seats or restraints. Brain damage, burn injuries, and paralysis may occur during a car accident.
Suffocation Injuries: Children, especially infants, can be suffocated by plastic bags, soft blankets, stuffed animals, and other hazards. Suffocation injuries lead to prolonged oxygen loss and brain damage and are often fatal.
Drowning: Small children may wander away from babysitters, daycare providers, and other caregivers and fall into a pool or other body of water. Drowning accidents are often fatal. Children who survive drowning may sustain permanent brain damage.
Negligence is often the cause of many child injuries. Injuries can occur at a place of business, on a playground at school, a daycare, or a person’s house. Responsible people for negligence may include:
Parents (the child’s own)
Other children’s parents (if the child was under their care at the time)
School or daycare during the time the child is entrusted in their care
