Many accidents can occur in the summer that might necessitate a personal injury lawyer. At Robert J. DeBry & Associates, we regularly see an uptick in cases during warmer months. This is potentially due to people being out and about more, but the heat can also play a role. ATV and golf cart crashes, motorcycle accidents, and trauma to children all go up during the summer.
Accidents Due to Recreation
Summer is the time to get outside and enjoy yourself, but safety is key. Swimming is one of the summer’s go-to activities. Kids love going to the local pool or swimming pool, but this can increase the risk of water-related injuries. Always make sure your children are resting after eating before they go swimming and that your youngest isn’t pushing themselves past their limits in the deep end.
Slipping and Falling on Wet Poolside Surfaces Can Also Occur
Concussions and other head trauma may arise due to hitting one’s head off of a diving board or on a concrete pool. Preventing this can be difficult, as no one wants to limit the amount of fun their child is having, but there are still steps you can take.
For one, make sure the pool your child frequents has a grippable surface that doesn’t become slippery when wet. Additionally, you should try to keep an eye on children when they’re in a pool. It can be easy to lose track of where everybody is in a crowded situation or when you’re having fun yourself, but you must do so to keep everybody in your party safe. Using plenty of sunscreen is also important to prevent severe sunburns and dehydration — stay hydrated this summer to help avoid heatstroke!
