Bronx Personal Injury Attorney Discusses 3 Common Accidents to Avoid This Summer, Bronx, New York

When it comes to debilitating injuries, summer poses different risks than wintertime. Unfortunately, even if you exercise caution at the pool or on the roads, you can’t rely on others to do the same. If you sustain injuries or illness because of someone else’s negligence this summer, turn to Stephen B. Kaufman, P.C., an attorney who practices out of the Bronx. As an experienced personal injury attorney, he possesses extensive experience in this field. Below, he discusses three common summertime accidents to avoid.

3 Common Summer Accidents From a Personal Injury Attorney

1. Motorcycle Accidents

personal injury attorneyThe winters in New York can be harsh, and motorcycle riders all over the state look forward to hitting the road as soon as the snow melts. If you drive a motorcycle, make sure you follow all traffic laws to reduce the risk of a collision.

2. Swimming & Boating Accidents

Whenever you go swimming, keep a close eye on your kids, even if there are lifeguards around, and use floatation devices as needed when you’re out on the water. In the state of New York, you must have life jackets for every individual on your boat.  

3. Drunk Driving Accidents

Summer kicks off with Memorial Day and ends with Labor Day, and there are plenty of opportunities to drink all season long. If you’re hosting a summer barbecue and you plan on serving alcohol, make sure you can provide sleeping arrangements for guests who will be drinking. And if you attend a 4th of July cookout with a group of friends, designate a driver beforehand so everyone can get home safely.
