Personal Injury Lawyer’s Tips for a Safe Halloween
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Across the U.S., there’s a nip in the air, and a bright orange jack-o-lantern on every porch – it’s Halloween time once again! For kids, the spooky time of year can be one of the most exciting of the entire year. However, as much fun as it may be to dress up in elaborate costumes and stay out well into the night, it should come as no surprise that the holiday brings with it a number of risks. At the Law Offices of Burg & Brock, Inc., the accident and wrongful death attorney and his expert legal team are very familiar with personal injury and product liability issues – and how to avoid them.
For years, Cameron Y. Brock has provided Southern California with exemplary legal counsel as the chief personal injury lawyer at the Law Offices of Burg & Brock, Inc. Mr. Brock has a proven track record of helping those who have been harmed by wrongful conduct, violations of safety rules and defective products, commercial vehicle accidents, dangerous conditions of public property and general negligence, even acting as a plane crash lawyer in Los Angeles. That’s why California’s premier law firm is an excellent source of information regarding safety for the whole family amid October’s ghoulish festivities – as well as an essential ally in the event that an incident occurs.
For many people, the idea of Halloween-related injuries may conjure up garish images of apples and candy hiding razors, or Dan Ackroyd’s sleazy salesman character on Saturday Night Live, selling ridiculously dangerous costumes like “Bag O’ Glass”. While it is easy, and understandable, to get caught up in hysteria regarding Halloween safety, in reality, the most bizarre stories are simply that – urban legends and parodies. However, there are undoubtedly plenty of legitimate – though less sensational –safety concerns. In general, the most common issues to watch out for on Halloween are the same as any time of year when groups are outside at night, and plenty of people are celebrating with alcohol. Thus, Halloween celebrants should be particularly aware of the risk of traffic collisions.
Parents can go a long way to protect their children simply by equipping them with reflectors and flashlights, which help make little ghouls more visible while also illuminating any hazards like uneven sidewalks that may stand in their path. The candles within jack-o-lanterns can also lead to burn injuries if one isn’t careful. Having handled a number of cases involving severe burns, Mr. Brock and his team are very familiar with the devastating effects of second and third-degree burns, thus, they recommend replacing candles with safer sources of light like lamps that are specifically designed for holiday illumination. Many children’s costumes are also incredibly flammable, which can be a risk around open flames on Halloween and for children who wear the costumes for fun the months after the holiday. Injuries stemming from this will often fall under product liability, another concern of the Law Offices of Burg & Brock.
Halloween should be a night of fun for everyone, and with the Law Offices of Burg & Brock, Inc., families throughout Southern California can enjoy the holiday without worrying about the potential impact of personal injuries. Mr. Brock and his team have earned over $100 million for clients while boasting a 97% success rate, and they are happy to represent anyone who has been victimized by the negligence of an individual or organization.
