Staying Safe from Spring Personal Injury Hazards

Published on March 28th, 2019

The snow is finally gone and the temperatures are consistently staying above freezing, which means that spring is finally here! While spring is an invigorating time for most people, it also poses a different set of dangers of which you should be aware. While spring is still here, it is important to be aware of common spring accidents to ensure that you don’t need to hire an injury attorney in Rockford.

Car Accidents

While car accidents can occur during any season, they are especially common during the spring. This season has an increased amount of cars on the road due to better driving conditions and an increased number of people traveling for spring breaks and vacations. Keep in mind that many people traveling on the Chicago roads will also be visiting from out of town, so they are not as aware of the traffic patterns and streets as locals are. Make sure that you are focused on the roads at all times.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents

Now that the weather is more tolerable, there will be an increased number of people outside. Bikers, walkers and runners will be on the sidewalks and crossing the street as they are spending more time outside. In pedestrian-heavy areas, make sure to follow the rules of the road and allow them to cross wherever there is a crosswalk. Staying off of your phone while you’re driving is essential to your focus.

Dog Bites

Dog owners can once again enjoy time outside with their four-legged friends. Although it is tempting to go up to a dog and start petting it, it is important to ask the owner before doing so. You don’t want to accidentally startle a dog or approach one that is not friendly only to result in a biting accident.

If you have been involved in an accident and you are suffering the consequences, rely on our injury attorney in Rockford to help you fight for the compensation that you deserve.
