Injuries in Norway
Every year, 2 500 people die and 300 000 receive treatment in hospital following injuries. Many serious injuries are related to alcohol and other drugs, falls and traffic. However, there has been a welcome reduction in the number of fatalities in the last 40-50 years, partly due to fewer traffic-related deaths.
