Happy Halloween to all of our readers! This year has truly flown by, and the holiday season is right around the corner. As always, the holidays should be a fun and joyful experience for friends and family. However, as Arizona Injury Lawyers, we know that the most essential component of a successful holiday season is safety. But, the added risks and safety hazards of holiday parties, travel, and shopping arise much earlier than the week of Thanksgiving. While it may shock some of you, October is actually one of the scariest months of the year when it comes to personal injuries. In fact, October 2018 saw the most motor vehicle crashes in all of last year.
The month of October may be coming to an end today, but Halloween itself can be the most frightening day of the year for more reasons than the scary costumes and decorations. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Halloween is consistently one of the top three days for pedestrian injuries and fatalities. The combination of nighttime activities, pedestrian traffic (particularly children), Halloween festivities involving adult beverages, and distractions in general create an increased risk of harm and catastrophe. Nonetheless, we, at Torgenson Law love Halloween and want you all to partake and enjoy the festivities. So, here are a few tips to ensure that you, your family, and your friends can avoid injury scares this Halloween night and weekend.
For Homeowners & Party Hosts
Halloween should always be fun and a little spooky for all ages. Sure, there increased injury risks due to high pedestrian traffic and Halloween parties involving adult beverages. Nonetheless, Halloween does not need to be dangerous. At Torgenson Law, we simply ask that you be smart this Halloween and be mindful of your surroundings. As always, if you or a loved one suffers a personal injury, our legal team at Torgenson Law is here for you. Give us a call at (602) 726-0747.
