Sports injury assessment and management are of paramount importance in the prevention of sports injuries. In this regard, the discussions related to this area are somehow associated with all sports sciences. Accordingly, the present study aimed to investigate the trend of injury rates, type of injuries, the injured limb, the time and conditions causing the injury, the rate of injuries in different seasons, the rate of injuries in different sports, the costs imposed to athletes, support costs of sports insurance, as well as the comparison of such factors between male and female athletes. The research method was retrospective that was conducted in the form of documents. For this purpose, the data related to sports insurance and accidents in different sports during 2016-2021 were obtained and analyzed in a case study from the sports medicine board of Kerman province the largest province in Iran. The data collection method included a combination of documentary and library methods, which was implemented by studying related sources and extracting information from different sports injury registration offices. After that, the data were analyzed with the help of SPSS version 26. The findings indicated that it is highly significant to know and teach safety tips for preventing sports injuries among adolescent athletes. In addition, considering sports nutrition and training intensity in various sports in terms of age, physical fitness, and sports history affect the reduction of injuries. Furthermore, the sports fields with the least collisions had the minimum injury while the most injuries occurred in the middle of summer. Thus, the consideration of sports officials to standardize sports venues in summer will significantly reduce the possibility of sports injuries. Further, the use of standard sports equipment in collision sports is inevitable and needs the consideration of athletes, coaches and sports authorities. It is of great importance to consider sports insurance which can reduce the costs for athletes in case of any injury.
