Introduction: Injuries are one of the most important causes of morbidity and mortality around the world. According to the World Health Organization, injuries from traffic accidents cause 5 million deaths and hurt millions of people across the world every year. In this study, we attempted to examine various injuries in different groups in Shahrekord city.
Methods: This is a retrospective descriptive study where data of accidents and injuries related to Shahrekord city during March 21, 2013, and March 20, 2015 (2 years in the Iranian calendar) were used. The obtained data were analyzed in SPSS software (version 16) using Fisher’s exact test at the significant level was considered 0.0.5.
Results: The age-standardized incidence for all accidents and injuries showed that the highest incidence, after traffic accidents (468 cases per 100,000 people), are related to falls (51 cases per 100,000 people) and violence (48 cases per 100,000 people).
Conclusions: Accidents and injuries occur more among younger age groups and this increases the burden of disease as well as the economic and psychological damages to society.
