At Arata, Swingle, Van Egmond & Goodwin, we know that there are five common summertime injuries that occur from accidents.
Summertime Accident 1: Lawn Care Accidents
Many of our clients want to perform lawn care or gardening chores in the summer. Unfortunately, it is easy to incur summertime injuries from equipment such as push or riding lawn mowers. Additional accidents can occur while using digging equipment, chain saws or weed trimmers. The most common types of injuries from gardening or lawn care equipment include deep lacerations and amputations of body parts.
Summertime Accident 2: Near Drowning Accidents
Summer is the perfect time for using a swimming pool at home or in the community. Alternatively, one of our clients might go swimming at a beach. Accidents on a beach or in a swimming pool are common. One of our clients might slip and fall from a defective diving board, or a hotel might have defective water-pumping equipment in a pool.
Summertime Accident 3: Bicycle Accidents
Many children, teenagers, and adults want to ride a bicycle in the summer, but when someone doesn’t wear a helmet or protective pads, it is possible to have a serious injury from a fall. In addition, a bicyclist might ride directly in front of an automobile, leading to a collision.
Summertime Accident 4: Vehicular Accidents
In the summertime in California, more drivers are on the road, and many of the individuals are tourists who are unfamiliar with the area. This leads to numerous summertime injuries from vehicular collisions that require emergency visits to local hospitals.
Summertime Accident 5: Motorcycle Accidents
More individuals want to ride motorcycles in the summer, and we assist numerous clients who have been injured after a collision. Additional problems that occur from motorcycle accidents are losing control of the motorcycle and sliding off the road or into a hard object. Summertime injuries from motorcycle accidents are serious because the driver does not wear a seat belt.
