At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our Houston personal injury attorneys know that the state of Texas is seeing winter temperatures that are colder than normal, which leads to weeks of families spending most of their time indoors.
When the warmer spring months roll in, and summer starts to arrive, kids can finally begin spending more time outside, enjoying activities that were long on hold during the colder months. Unfortunately, the excitement associated with the outdoors often leads to an uptick in children’s injuries.
Here are a few ways accidents, injuries, and fatalities increase in children, so adults can be on the lookout for dangerous conditions.
What are the Most Common Types of Outdoor Accidents that Impact Texas Children?
Our Harris County personal injury lawyers know the joys of playing outside. As adults, we too are happy to sit outside, and enjoy the warmer months with our family and friends, so it is not lost on us the quality of life the warmer Texas months bring.
When we are all outside together, kids rely on their parents, caregivers, and other adults to keep them safe from the dangers that can lurk in backyards, driveways, neighborhood streets, and playgrounds throughout Texas.
Common accidents and injuries associated with the outdoors include:
- Bicycle accidents and injuries.
- Burn injuries from grilles, campfires, and fireworks.
- Children on foot or bicycles being hit by negligent drivers who are speeding, impaired, or failing to obey traffic signs and signals.
- Defective playground equipment accidents and injuries.
- Dog bites and attacks.
- Falls from decks, porches, and other heights that cause catastrophic injuries.
- Swimming pool accidents, near drownings, and drowning.
- Trampoline accidents and injuries.
If your kids have suffered injuries that were caused by negligence on public or private property, we can help you understand your legal rights and options to pursue the liable party’s insurance coverage for your family’s full financial recovery. This will help you avoid paying costly medical bills out of pocket and provide access to compensation for other non-economic damages that will help your child return to the joys of being a kid sooner than later.
