The US National Safety Council reports that more than 300,000 door-related injuries requiring emergency room treatment take place each year. For example, fast-moving, slamming doors can smack the little fingers of young children and lead to possible life-long injuries. Incidents like these happen fairly often, but they can be easily preventable if you know how to stop door slamming properly.
