Avoiding Summer Personal Injuries

Published on June 10th, 2019

Summer is a time to hang out with your friends and family and enjoy the great weather. However, the summer also presents potential dangers for personal injuries to occur. If you or a loved one has been injured, call on our personal injury lawyer in Mokena for help to ensure that you get the compensation that you deserve.

The following are possible year-round, but especially in the summer.

Construction Accidents

Construction sites pose many potential dangers to both workers and passersby, so it is important that you are aware of potential dangers. Keep in mind that there are many factors that contribute to potential construction accident lawsuits, so the law firm that you choose needs to be well-versed in how these cases work. At BKMS, our team has fought many construction cases in the past and we can help you fight for the compensation and the peace of mind that you deserve.

Animal Attacks

With warmer weather, more and more people will be outside, including animals. Dogs are especially popular in Chicago, and you need to be careful around dogs as they can behave unexpectedly. As a general rule of thumb, avoid strange dogs and don’t approach them while they are eating or sleeping. Also, always ask the owner if it is okay to pet their dog before doing so.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Did you know that the summer is one of the most dangerous times of year to be behind the wheel? There are more teens on the road because they are not in school, and they don’t have the driving experience that older people do. There are also many tire blowouts in addition to construction sites that add another layer of danger. Make sure to always take your time and drive safely. If you are a pedestrian, double check before crossing to make sure that cars have seen you.
