With the weather getting warmer and people getting out after what seemed like ages in lockdown, there are many concerns about personal injuries. Whether you are at the park, at the pool or taking a hike, there are many ways people get hurt. Here are some of them.
Swimming pools can be quite dangerous. Unfortunately, pool owners (whether they be individuals or property companies) do not take the necessary measures to ensure safety. For example, simply posting “No lifeguard on duty” doesn’t absolve a property company from injury liabilities.
If a drowning occurs and results in injury or death, the details should be examined by an experienced attorney. Many times there are issues or violations that could be grounds for a civil claim.
Slips and Falls
This happens often around swimming pools as well. Oftentimes, water is not cleaned up properly which can lead to falls. While the majority of injuries are very minor, there are many cases when a fall can lead to broken bones or severe spinal or head injuries.
The more people get on the road, the more accidents occur. Distracted driving, driving under the influence and careless driving cause many deaths over the summer months. Oftentimes, even minor accidents can cause injuries that don’t show up until after a few days. If you or a loved one has been in an accident, it is in your best interests to get an experienced injury lawyer involved early on to examine your case.
Dog Bites and Animal Attacks
This one especially affects kids. Kids love to innocently approach animals but sometimes this goes horribly wrong. I have defended many dog bite cases and the facts can be horrifying. Recently I was retained in the case of a beautiful young girl who was mauled by a dog. The injuries to her face were some of the most severe I had ever seen.
