In this article, Stern Law Firm’s Bronx personal injury attorneys discuss some of the common accidents and their causes during the spring and summer seasons.
Common Spring & Summertime Personal Injuries
Auto Accidents: While unexpected storms and heavy rain increase the odds of auto accidents, visitors driving and walking in unfamiliar streets are also among the top causes of traffic accidents during the spring and summer months in the Bronx. Accidents involving pedestrians, bicyclists, or motorcyclists are pretty frequent in the summertime.
Slip and Fall Accidents: Spring is infamous for its ever-changing weather patterns. While it may be sunny and pleasant one day, temperatures may plunge the next due to ice, rain, or other slick conditions. Always be cautious of the wet surfaces. If you are a property owner, you may need to fix sidewalks, driveways, and pavement to avoid accidents.
Drowning Incidents: With the arrival of warm weather, people open their pools or go to the beach, lake, or rivers. It increases the risks of drowning or severe injuries in or near water. ·
Playground Injuries: Playground injuries can occur for multiple reasons and are often the result of negligence. If your child is hurt due to damaged, dangerous, or improperly kept playground equipment, the entity that owns or is responsible for maintaining the playground may be held accountable.
