The incidence, distribution and clinical patterns of life-threating and multiple injuries were evaluated within an English Regional Health Authority area.
Cases of major injury were identified retrospectively for the 12 month period October 1988 to September 1989 using data from the 16 accident and Emergency (A & E) units within the Yorshire Health Region, and coroner's records.
There were 968 cases of fatal and serious injury, meeting the criterion of an injury severity score greater than 15,67 per cent (645) being due to road traffic incidents.
