Accidents in the home statistics 2020

67,135 children were admitted to hospital in 2020 due to accidents in the home, with many parents not installing safety equipment to prevent accidents from occurring.

A new report by The Compensation Experts has analysed NHS data to reveal that 67,135 children were admitted to hospital in 2020 due to home-related injuries. The report also questioned UK parents on the safety features they have and haven’t installed in their homes to help reduce accidents.

The survey was conducted via the Leadership Factor on behalf of The Compensation Experts to 1000 UK parents with children between 0-16. NHS data was captured via https://digital.nhs.uk/data-and-information/publications/statistical/hospital-admitted-patient-care-activity
