This study was carried out in casualty department of LLR Hospital, G.S.V. M. Medical College, Kanpur to study the epidemiology of accidents in form of road traffic accidents,fall from hieght, agricultural accidents and violence. Studies of mode of transport from site of injury to hospital and time lag between accident and hospitalsation were also done. These all factors i.e mechanism of injury, mode of transport and time lag were studied in relation to different age group of patients, their incidence, morbidity, permanent disability and mortality. Total 1914 patients which could be adequately followed were included in this study. It was inferred that maximum number of accidents found were due to road traffic accidents. Accidents due to fall from height were common in extremes of age. Maximum number of mortality and disability were found in patients who reached the hospital after six hours of the injury. These datas are of importance, in planning the preventive measures to prevent such accidents, for better management of such accidents by reducing the time lag between accidents and hospitalsation, by quick and safe transportation and to emphasize upon the need of developing trauma centers.
