accidents Injury from an accident is one of the major reasons for a childhood emergency room visit, and trauma is the leading cause of death in children over one year of age, according to the National Safety Council and the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. Each year, more than 28,000 deaths and almost seven million injuries occur from accidents in the home. This means that a death occurs every 19 minutes from a home accident, and a disabling injury every five seconds.

1. motor-vehicle accidents

2. drowning

3. burns

4. poisonings

5. firearms

6. falls
