School Accidents and Injuries

Nov 05, 2021

Millions of daycare and school-age children have to visit the emergency room every year, and approximately 12 thousand of them end up dying. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the most common occurrence is on the playground. These average 200 thousand and impact mainly kids between ages one and four.

Parents need to know the most widespread school and childcare injuries if they have children below 12.

The following are the most common school injuries, compiled by the National Center for Health Statistics and warrant contacting a Brooklyn personal injury attorney.

Injuries Caused By Laceration Or Contusion: Several of these incidents are mild, but others are life-threatening.

Injuries to the Head: Slips and falls, along with falling off play equipment, could cause head trauma.

Strained and sprained muscles: Strains and sprains both cause damage to the ligaments and muscles, respectively. Injuries like these can happen while your kids are playing or even walking.

Joint Dislocations: Dislocated joints cause distress when a joint such as the leg, shoulder, or elbow dislocates.

Injuries to the Organs and Internal Systems: Because they are difficult to detect, internal injuries might be just as harmful as those to the head.

Broken Bones or Fractures: A fracture is a broken bone. Arm and foot fractures are the most common in children, with full or partial breaks.

Suffocation by accident: A kid can get tangled in a swing’s chain or a schoolyard rope element. Youngsters must be supervised at all times by grownups in the play area.
