PHILADELPHIA, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/25/12 -- The Pennsylvania car accident lawyers at Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C., are dedicated to protecting the safety of those in our community, and as such, feel it is important to raise awareness about some potentially dangerous situations that frequently arise this time of year. As the end of October approaches, millions of Pennsylvanians are preparing to celebrate Halloween. While this holiday provides a great opportunity for both kids and adults to have fun, there are also some distinct injury risks that Halloween can pose. Being aware of these potential risks can help Pennsylvanians avoid suffering an unfortunate accident and allow them to enjoy the festivities.
One of the most potentially dangerous problems associated with Halloween is the costumes that people wear. Especially dark costumes, which are very popular, can make those wearing them difficult to see at night, which frequently leads to automotive accidents with pedestrians. Being aware of this very real risk, especially when out trick-or-treating after dark, and maintaining extra vigilance during Halloween can help to avoid an unfortunate situation.
Another serious issue that often accompanies Halloween is increased amounts of drunk drivers on the road. Many people celebrate Halloween by attending social gatherings and drinking with friends, and unfortunately, some of these individuals will choose to operate a motor vehicle afterwards while intoxicated. This can place the lives and safety of other motorists and pedestrians in danger. Sadly, this often coincides with lots of children being on or near the roadway going door to door.
Keep these dangers in mind throughout the Halloween season to avoid suffering a serious injury. However, if you or a member of your family does fall victim to these or other types of unfortunate accidents, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your damages from those responsible. The Pennsylvania car accident lawyers of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C., are prepared to help anyone who is the victim of another party's negligence pursue the compensation they need.
