Summer is a time when more people are off from work and school. It’s a time to get outdoors more and have fun. Whether you and your kids are going on a trip or staying close to home, you must take care during Las Vegas summers. Certain types of accidents are more common during this time of year. Knowing what they are can help you to better protect yourself from a disaster.
Bike and Motorcycle Accidents
In the summer, more kids are out on their bicycles. Adults are also more likely to hit the road on their motorcycles. Unfortunately, it also means there are more bike and motorcycle accidents during this time of year. Drivers of regular cars and other motor vehicles often don’t see the smaller, slimmer vehicles sharing the roads with them. Others may be driving recklessly or behave negligently behind the wheel.
Pool and Drowning Accidents
More people are making trips to their local community pools in the summer. Others visit the pool of a family member or friend. Children are particularly susceptible to drowning accidents, even if they are strong swimmers. It’s important for them to always be supervised when at the pool. If it’s a public pool, there should be a lifeguard on duty. When visiting someone’s private pool, an adult should constantly supervise children while they’re in or around the pool. Children who don’t yet know how to swim or who are novices should wear protective flotation gear while in the water.
In addition to drowning, other types of pool accidents can happen. If the area around the pool is wet, it can be slick and slippery, which can lead to a slip and fall accident that can leave someone injured. Never run around the pool and be aware of your surroundings.
Amusement Park Accidents
Summer is a time when people are more likely to visit amusement parks. While the rides are fun and thrilling, accidents can happen. Usually, this occurs as a result of poorly maintained or defective equipment in rides or ride operators being insufficiently trained. If someone sustains an injury after an accident at an amusement park, the owner or manager of the park can be held liable.
