3 Common Personal Injuries to Watch Out for This Summer
3 Common Personal Injuries to Watch Out for This Summer
Summer is the season of personal injuries. With high temperatures, family vacations, and school out for the summer, many people are at higher risk for personal injuries during the summer months than any other time of the year.
Here are some of the most common personal injuries reported in Atlanta during the summer season so you know what to be on the lookout for:
1. Car accidents. The American Automobile Association refers to the period between Memorial Day and Labor Day as the 100 Deadliest Days of the year. This is because younger drivers are on the road more often now that school’s out for the summer. It’s also because more families are on the road for vacation and motorcyclists are taking advantage of the warm weather. If you’re hurt by another driver’s negligence or reckless driving, it’s worth looking into your local Atlanta auto accident law firms to file a personal injury claim.
2. Dog bites. Dogs are more likely to be out relaxing in their owner’s yards or going out for a run during the summer months. Unfortunately, not every fence or leash can keep a dog from getting out, and not every person is able to tell when their dog is nervous. That said, steer clear of dogs when you’re out on the town even if they look friendly, and don’t run towards a dog owner when you want to pet their dog. Sudden movements, especially from strangers, can make a dog defensive or scared.
3. Heat-related illness. Heat exhaustion and heat stroke can affect anyone during the summer months, but it’s especially common on the job. When you’re working outside, be sure you’re taking frequent breaks in the shade and that you’re drinking plenty of water. If your employer doesn’t supply water or breaks while working outside in the summer and you consequently suffer from a heat-related illness, you may be able to file a personal injury claim.
