Preventing Child Injuries in Pennsylvania

Posted on Oct 05, 2010

October 5, 2010 - Child Health Day was observed in Pennsylvania in early October. The entire month serves as a perfect time to reflect on ways in which Pennsylvania residents can keep children safe from harm. Teaching your children the benefits of good health can further facilitate injury prevention.

10 Tips to Keep your Child Safe from Injury

Ten ways to help keep your child safe from harm include:

  • Avoid putting stuffed animals, thick blankets and pillows in the crib (these items pose a suffocation danger).
  • Upgrade to a bed at the appropriate time (when your child is able to climb out of a crib).
  • Keep small objects away from young children (children tend to put many things into their mouths, which poses a choking hazard).
  • Learn CPR and the Heimlich maneuver.
  • Never leave children unsupervised around water (pools, toilets, buckets).
  • Keep alcohol locked and out of reach of children.
  • Keep all weapons locked and out of reach of children.
  • Outfit your children with the proper bicycle safety equipment (including a properly fitted bike helmet).  
  • Wear your seat belt and teach your children to do the same.  

Though accidents do happen, many can be prevented. If someone else's negligence has caused an accident that has injured your child, contact a Philadelphia personal injury lawyer who can review the facts of your case and determine whether it would be in your best interest to file a Pennsylvania personal injury claim on behalf of your child.
