Massachusetts Sports and Recreation Accident Injuries

Massachusetts sports activities are the leading cause of unintentional injuries in Massachusetts children and Massachusetts young adults. In the United States, approximately thirty million children and teens participate in some form of organized sports. Of these children, more than 3.5 million children ages 14 and under get hurt annually when playing sports or participating in recreational activities. Massachusetts sports-related injuries do not only affect young children; forty two percent of people between the ages of 15 to 24 are injured annually in sports related accidents. Most of these sports and recreational injuries cause the injured person to lose time participating in the sport or other activity. Approximately 800,000 American children, ages 14 and under, are treated in hospital emergency rooms for sports-related injuries each year. The most common causes of Massachusetts sports injuries are falls, being struck by an object, collisions and overexertion during unorganized or informal Massachusetts sports-related activities.

Massachusetts sports injuries constitute a major public health concern in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Massachusetts sports injuries account for almost one fourth of all accident related traumas, second only to Massachusetts motor vehicle accidents. Almost one-third of all injuries to children are sports-related injuries. The most common Massachusetts sports-related injuries are sprains and strains. Massachusetts sports injuries concerning the spinal cord, back and neck are not only long lasting and painful, but may also lead to paralysis and other life-altering conditions. Although Massachusetts wrongful death from a Massachusetts sports-related injury is rare, the leading cause of death from a Massachusetts sports injury is a Massachusetts brain injury. Sports and recreational activities contribute to approximately twenty percent of all traumatic brain injuries among American children. Almost half of all head injuries sustained in sports or recreational activities occur during bicycling, skateboarding or skating incidents.
