Child Injury Prevention Center
The mission of the Child Injury Prevention Center is to provide a free resource of information and tips to parents, child care providers, teachers, camp counselors, baby sitters, extended family members, neighbors, and all others to inform and empower people to act the best interest of children. Knowledge, common sense, attentiveness, and patience can all go a long way to preventing injuries to children. While it is somewhat unrealistic to prevent all injuries from taking place. All necessary, reasonable, and available safety precautions should be taken to protect children. If the steps and tips followed in the articles posted in the Child Injury Prevention Center are followed, many serious personal injuries and deaths can be avoided. As so aptly noted by Nelson Mandela, "There can be no keener elevation of a society's should than the way in which it treats its children."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that unintentional injuries include those injuries resulting from drownings, automobile accidents, burns and fires, falls, and poisoning incidents. It is estimated by the CDC that there are over 12,000 children in the age range of 0 to19 years old who die each year as a result of unintentional injuries. Furthermore, over 9 million children in this age range are treated for personal injuries in emergency rooms each year.
Certainly, there is a certain level of pride and satisfaction in serving an attorney, author, and advocate focusing on child injury and safety matters. Most child injuries involve unintentional injuries. In other words, the person who caused the incident or event did not act with malice or the intent to harm the child. Based in Jacksonville, Florida, David Wolf represents children through the State of Florida and frequently co-counsels with out of state attorneys on incidents or injuries throughout the United States. He has been interviewed by Time Magazine concerning day care and safety issues. David Wolf is active in the community where he has donated his time and skills to Big Brother / Big Sisters, Creeks Athletic Association and Florida Elite Soccer Academy, the ARC for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, and the Jacksonville Jewish Community Alliance. He is the founder of the Good Deed Brigade which has a mission to promote the actions and kindness of people making a difference in the community.
