Child injuries and car accidents

Many people do not think much about children and car accidents in Atlanta until they are involved one. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, emergency rooms treat approximately 150 young car accident victims every hour. Many other kids sustain life-threatening injuries or die in those accidents. 

Today’s vehicles are equipped with features that enhance safety and reduce the risk of accidents and injuries. Car and booster seats also help to shield children from the impact of motor vehicle collisions. When those safety features fail and children are not properly secured in their seats, the risk of severe injuries and death from car accidents increase significantly. 

A leading cause of childhood injury and death

More kids die and become injured in car accidents than many other types of accidents, states FindLaw. Sometimes car wrecks are minor and the kids end up serious injuries. It is also not uncommon for children to sustain minor injuries in major car accidents. Common injuries that children in car collisions end up with include fractures, brain injuries and spinal trauma. Their injuries may range from mild to severe and can shorten their life expectancies. 

It is important for everyone to consider the impact car accidents have on the lives of children and their families. When parents, caregivers and guardians take precautions to improve safety in their vehicles and their driving skills, they can make the roads safer for themselves and their young passengers. They can also minimize the chances and severity of any wounds their kids sustain in unavoidable crashes.
