The good news is that many of these injuries are preventable and there are many ways that you can help reduce the chance of a sustaining one.

Buckle Up Every Ride

Every time you drive or ride in a motor vehicle, wear a seat belt and ensure children are buckled up in age- and size-appropriate car or booster seats.

Always Drive Sober

Never drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol and do not get into a car with a driver who you know has been drinking or doing drugs.

Wear Helmets

Wear the appropriate headgear and ensure your child does when doing activities like bicycling, skateboarding, playing sports, or riding a horse.

Prevent Elder Falls

Talk to your doctor or your elderly loved one's doctor about fall prevention, including regular eye exams, leg exercises, and steps to make your home safer.

Make Safe Play Areas

Make living and play areas safer for children in order to prevent falls from staircases or windows and have soft landing materials for playground areas.
