In the United States, unintentional injury is the number one cause of death in people aged 1-44 years. Every year, unintentional injury kills more Americans than diabetes mellitus, pneumonia, and influenza. Unintentional injury is also responsible for a significant number of lost days of productivity and it can have a huge impact on quality of life.
