Injury Study Expands to Southern California and Florida; Soon to Include All States

THE National Injury Studies Institute has begun interviewing injury victims in Southern California and Southern Florida as part of a comprehensive nationwide study of the causes and consequences of accidental injuries.

The nationwide injury study will soon expand to include all 50 states. It is designed to uncover and explore developing trends in injury causation. The ultimate goal of the study is to help with the development of more effective means of accident prevention and control.

The National Injury Studies Institute is a private, nonprofit organization with the mission of studying the nature, frequency and underlying cause of accidental injuries and death. The institute recently commenced an intensive, state-by-state study of injury victims, and anticipates interviewing thousands of people throughout the country.

"The public's response to our project has been overwhelming," stated Seth D. Heyman, founder and executive director of the National Injury Studies Institute. "We have already interviewed hundreds of injury victims in California and Florida, and are gradually expanding our study to include additional states. We are uncovering some very surprising information, and look forward to analyzing our data and presenting our conclusions."
