Children and Injuries

Children and Injuries

by Joe L. Frost

Editorial Reviews

Specialists in fields including law, child development, medicine, kinesiology, and safety offer detailed information on the many ways children are injured, emphasizing the importance of prevention and documenting the need for guidelines, standards, and codes for safe children's products. Adult education and supervision is also emphasized. Introductory chapters examine child development and injuries, medical and biomechanical aspects, and safety regulations. Subsequent chapters cover injuries in the home, the classroom, on playgrounds and in organized sports, water injuries, traffic injuries, and injuries in public parks and amusement parks. Two final chapters cover evaluating child loss in fatalities, and conducting litigation in child injury cases. While written primarily for those in the legal profession, material is accessible and relevant for parents, educators, and organizations sharing responsibility for child safety. Frost is professor emeritus at the University of Texas-Austin. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
