Child Injuries & Safety

Children should never be victims of serious injury or abuse; however, in 2014, the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System reported an estimated 1,580 child fatalities due to abuse or neglect. Children ages 3 and younger were the most frequent victims of child fatalities, accounting for nearly 71% of child abuse or neglect fatalities. Of the children who lost their lives due to maltreatment, 41.3% suffered some form of physical abuse.
