Unintentional injuries are a significant public health problem. The primary causes of unintentional injuries include motor vehicle crashes affecting passengers or pedestrians, falls, drowning, choking, suffocation, residential fires/burns, and occupational and recreational activities.
Unintentional injuries are among the leading causes of injury and death for all age groups, and the number one cause of death for ages one to 44. Despite being labeled "accidents" many unintentional injuries and deaths are very predictable and preventable.
