Halloween Safety Tips!

Halloween Safety Tips!

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that Halloween is one of the top three days for pedestrian injuries and fatalities.

Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that children are four times more likely to be struck by a motor vehicle on Halloween than any other day of the year.

Halloween is a fun, so drivers, parents, and trick-or-treaters often forget the dangers. It is a time to be more alert. If you or someone you know is injured, call the injury attorneys with Althauser Rayan Abbarno at (360) 736-1301.

Here are some tips to keep you safe this Halloween:

Drivers

  • Slow down and obey all traffic signs and signals. Drive at least 5 mph below the posted speed limit to allow for more time to react if children run into the road;
  • Watch for children walking on roadways, medians and curbs. Dar costumes are hard to see and the pedestrians may be distracted;
  • Carefully enter and exit driveways and alleys; and
  • Turn on your headlights to make yourself more visible – even in at dusk.

DUI. . . on a Bicycle?

Can Bicyclists Be Charged With DUI?

Labor Day Weekend is the last holiday before students return to school. Labor Day is the last holiday of the summer.

Protect Yourself After A Vehicle Collision!

Many of us take our commutes for granted. Whether one hour or 10 minutes, routine commutes can be dangerous. Statistics evidence that 52% of all vehicle collisions occur within 5 miles of home and only 17% occur more than 20 miles away from home.

Maybe it is because we are more likely to drive near our residence. Maybe it is because we let our guard down when we are closer to home. Regardless, vehicle collisions can have a devastating impact on you and your family.

Being injured in a vehicle, motorcycle, bicycle, or pedestrian collision sets off a chain of events nobody is prepared for; medical bills and property damage are likely just tips of the iceberg. There may be lost wages, towing/impound fees; pain, suffering, and tons of confusing paperwork.

Althauser Rayan Abbarno injury attorneys are here when you need us most! Since 1946, our attorneys have helped injured clients throughout the State of Washington.
