Causes and Risk Factors for Facial Trauma
Facial injuries occur more often in males than in females and are most often the result of sports injuries, physical attacks, falls, or motor vehicle accidents. Age is also a risk factor: children, teenagers, and the elderly are more likely to suffer facial trauma than other adults, usually because of risk-seeking behavior or increased physical vulnerability.
