English term or phrase: LiFE event
Bonjour,

Je n'arrive plus à me souvenir de la traduction consacrée du terme "LiFE event" dans le contexte suivant:

Of major concern, we experienced eight potential LiFE events—only good fortune kept these from becoming life-changing injuries—versus two LiFE events in 2016.

J'ai pour l'instant traduit par "incidents présentant un danger de mort", mais j'ai un sérieux doute.

Merci de vos suggestions!

Evènement marquant


Explanation:
Pour ma part, je cantonnerai la traduction de 'LiFE event' à 'évènement marquant' parce qu'ils sont des évènements significatifs de la vie, heureux ou malheureux, et induisant un stress, bon ou mauvais, et que, dans la phrase soumise, la parenthèse spécifie qu'il n'y a pas eu de dommage affectant la vie.
