Safety Tips for Trick or Treaters
Halloween offers plenty of opportunity for fun; it also offers plenty of opportunity for injury – particularly for children. You can reduce risks of injury by talking with your children about safety and instructing them in the best ways to keep safe while trick or treating.
To help your children avoid pedestrian accidents, instruct them to:
- Use reflective tape on costumes and treat bags
- Bring a flashlight or glow sticks
- Walk on the sidewalk
- Walk facing traffic where no sidewalk is available
- Trick or treat in groups or with an adult
- Avoid poorly lit streets
Of course, even the most responsible trick or treater may be injured by a negligent or careless driver. When this occurs, you need an experienced personal injury attorney on your side as soon as possible to help ensure your child is protected and justice is served.
