Serious violence and injury have life-altering consequences for victims and their families that often cannot be reversed. Prevention and treatment must be priorities. Violence in the United States is a public health epidemic that is caused by institutional and personal actions. The root causes of violence include inequitable social and economic conditions. Personal violence is the intentional use of physical or psychological force against another person or against oneself that may result in injury or death. An injury is damage to tissue usually caused by excessive energy transfer.
