Fairfield Personal Injury Lawyers

The fall season is a time that many in our area will celebrate a well-known, much loved holiday. Halloween is a day in which excited children dress up, show off their costumes and enjoy too many sweet treats.  It is also a time when children are exposed to potential injury due to some increased risks and conditions that exist on Halloween.  The Fairfield Personal Injury Lawyers at The Bennett Law Firm offer the following safety tips for all trick-or-treaters and party-goers to ensure a safe and fun holiday, instead of a scary one.
Children: 
Limit trick-or-treating to your own neighborhood where people are more likely to watch out for your well-being
Travel in groups. It’s fun & safe
Stay in a well lit area and carry a flashlight
Visit well lit homes
Never enter a stranger’s home, even if invited inside
Have an adult inspect your candy for signs of tampering before eating • Don’t eat anything that looks suspicious

Costumes: 
Be highly visible to motorists
Wear light colored costumes with reflective tape
Carry a flashlight
If you wear a mask, cut the eye holes larger to maximize vision
Make sure costumes are flame resistant
Avoid carrying sharp or pointed objects to prevent injuries

Parents: 
Pre-plan a trick-or-treat route for your children
Escort younger children or designate responsibility to an older child
Keep children in-sight
Do not let children dart into traffic

Drivers: 
Watch for children who are easily distracted by Halloween activities
Watch for small children entering the roadway without warning
Turn on your headlights to increase visibility
