Summer Injuries

Summertime for many kids means fun, water activities and outdoor sports. Yet summer is also known as “trauma season” in ER’s around the country according to Safe Kids Worldwide, a children’s safety organization. The most common injuries seen include head injuries (from activities ranging from bike riding to balls hitting the child’s head), facial injuries (wounds caused by falls or animal bites), and wrist and elbow fractures (many occur with basketball, bike riding and skateboarding).   Taking simple safety precautions, such as wearing protective gear and observing safety guidelines, can help avoid these common summertime injuries.
