Introduction: Considering the fact that there has been a significant increase in accidents, assessing the consequences of accidents in terms of age and sex of victims can be an effective tool for health policy making efforts.

Materials &Methods: This study is a cross-sectional one, where all patients referred to hospitals' emergency wards in Hamadan province during 2009 to 2014 were enrolled in it. The data came from injury register database and were analyzed using descriptive and analytic statistics with Stata software version 12 with a less than 5% error margin.

Results: A total of 925135 patients were registered during this period, that in 98.97% of them, the outcome of accidents were remission. In one percent of cases (1359 cases) the outcome of accident was death and only in 41 patients the accident resulted in impairment. The odds of death or impairment in affected women were significantly higher than men and the highest odds of death were in the age group of 35 years and higher.

Conclusion: There is small percentage of accidents leading to death and disability during the years under study. The severity of injuries was higher in women and the elderly which may also be due to their greater vulnerability. Therefore, in order to reduce the burden of accidents, it is necessary to design and implement comprehensive educational interventional programs.
