Top 5 Summertime Accidents

Between an increased time spent on the water and Fourth of July activities, summertime accidents provide an opportunity for you to both become hurt and face personal injury lawsuits. By recognizing the top five accidents likely to occur in the summer, you may be able to avoid both circumstances.

1. Car Accidents
Families often pile into the car and head to the beach, the mountains, or to visit loved ones. In addition to there being a greater number of cars on the road, the number of construction workers on the road is greater. Both of these factors result in an increase in accidents.

2. Bike Accidents
People use the summer weather as an incentive to get out and get the exercise they did not get during the winter months. The CDC reported over 900 bicycle-related deaths in 2013 alone and almost half a million bicycle-related visits to the emergency room.

3. Drownings
People flock to pools both at their homes and in public spaces. Parents need to be on a constant alert any time their child is around water. Property owners should know that they may be held liable in a lawsuit if someone drowns in their pool.

4. Fireworks
Fourth of July festivities result in an increase of summertime accidents involving fireworks. The CDC cites that one-quarter of the people injured by fireworks every year are under the age of 15.

5. Playground Incidents
While it’s healthy for children to get out of the house and enjoy the sunshine, falls on parks and playgrounds increase during the season as well. In fact, children under the age of 14 sustain over 200,000 injuries every year related to playground and park activities.

Many of these summertime accidents occur due to faulty playground equipment, a careless neighbor, or a reckless driver. If you’ve sustained a personal injury due to another, you may be entitled to compensation. The Law Offices of Justin H. King has extensive experience with personal injury cases.
