Cherry Hill Personal Injury Lawyers Discuss Halloween Safety

HalloweenHalloween is just around the corner, and with it comes an increased risk for accidents and injuries. As costumed children run from house to house in search of the best treats, the potential for broken bones, cuts, bruises, head injuries and even fatal car accidents lurk around every corner. Trick-or-treating in neighborhoods has been a long time tradition in our country, but safety remains the priority of the day. Cherry Hill personal injury lawyers at Law Offices of Eric A. Shore offer several tips for keeping your ghosts and goblins safe this year.

It is always wise for children under the age of 12 to have an adult present as they trick-or-treat. For older children going out without an adult, traveling in groups can be a safe alternative. Big groups are more likely to be seen crossing the street and are less likely to be approached by strangers. Costumes that incorporate reflective tape are both decorative and safe, making children more visible in the dusk and evening hours and reducing the risk of a pedestrian accident. Carrying a flashlight is also a good way to avoid slips, trips and falls, but also to be visible to traffic.

Children and teens should be reminded that crossing the street at corners and walking on sidewalks and designated pathways will help them avoid oncoming cars. Parents may assume that their older children always remember to look both ways and make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them, but reminders can keep them safe from harm. Cell phones are good for parents and children to stay in touch throughout the evening, but walking while texting can lead to injuries when tree stumps, electrical wires or oncoming cars pop up in front of distracted pedestrians.

Moreover, drivers must be especially focused on the road as they travel through residential neighborhoods on Halloween. Drive slowly and be on the lookout for excited children darting out between parked cars or making sudden moves to cross the street. Drivers need to be especially vigilant when backing out of driveways and rounding corners. Cell phones need to be off and out of reach when driving on Halloween to avoid distracted driving.
