Accidental Injury Overview
By definition, an accidental injury is an injury that could have been prevented. While 100% of all home injuries cannot be prevented, many can.
Together, burns and scalds, falls, and poisonings are responsible for 86% of home injury deaths. The Healthy Homes Coalition helps families to be safe in their homes.
