Injury-Linked Deaths Vary Widely Among States
Date:5/22/2012

TUESDAY, May 22 (HealthDay News) -- New Mexico has the highest rate of injury-related deaths in the United States, while New Jersey has the lowest rate, according to a new report.

New Mexico's rate is nearly 98 per 100,000 people, while New Jersey's is about 36 per 100,000. Overall, the national rate of injury-related deaths is about 58 per 100,000, according to the report released by the Trust for America's Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Injuries that result from accidents, violence and other causes are the third-leading cause of death in the United States, and are the leading cause of death for Americans aged 1 to 44 years.

About 50 million Americans receive medical treatment for injuries each year, and more than 2.8 million are hospitalized. Nearly 12,000 children and teens die each year from accident-related injuries, and about 9.2 million are treated in emergency rooms.

Each year, injuries result in $406 billion in lifetime costs for medical care and lost productivity, according to the report.

The study concluded that millions of injuries could be prevented each year if more states adopted, fully implemented and enforced additional injury-prevention policies that are backed by research.

The report noted that 24 states scored five or lower on a set of 10 key indicators of steps states can take to prevent injuries. California and New York had the best scores (nine out of 10), while Montana and Ohio had the lowest scores (two out of 10).

The report's key findings included the following:

  • 29 states do not require bicycle helmets for all children
  • 17 states do not require that children ride in a car seat or booster seat until at least age 8
  • 31 states do not require helmets for all motorcycle riders
  • 34 states and Washington, D.C., do not require mandatory ignition interlocks for convicted drunk drivers
  • 18 states do not have primar
