Summer is Here and Personal Injury Cases Are Rising With the Heat!

Summer is here in Miami and so is the season for serious personal injury accidents. As experienced personal injury attorneys, Englander Peebles know that disaster can strike quickly, turning an average enjoyable family outing or a fun summer day at the park, beach, or pool into a drastic turn of events.  There are many types of outdoor play areas and situations that can pose a serious risk for children of all ages, as do beaches, playgrounds, and pools. And it’s not just children who are more at risk for personal injury in the summertime: adults as well are more active and taking part in more potentially dangerous activities.  The premier personal injury attorneys at Englander Peebles have handled hundreds of cases involving personal injuries and we understand what is necessary to get the best results. These kinds of cases are often disputed and minimized in the eyes of the insurance companies but with Englander Peebles by your side, you can rest assured that we will fight for you and your fair and just compensation.

 

School is almost done for the summer, and summertime accidents tend to happen quickly- turning an average enjoyable family outing or a fun summer day at the park, beach, or pool into a drastic turn of events.  Outdoor fun is one of the benefits of summertime for kids, but it also provides some of the most common dangers for children. In fact, personal injury to children peaks during the summer months in Miami.  If your child has had an injury based on the negligence of another, instead of taking on the legal issues on your own, your best course of action is to contact a law firm that specializes in this area like Englander Peebles.

Personal Injury Accidents With Children In Summertime

Every parent wants to trust that our playgrounds and parks are safe and that the equipment is maintained properly.  We also want to believe that employees are going to protect us and that our children are safe from any catastrophe. Unfortunately, the occurrences of things as seemly safe as a playground have thousands of accidents reported in a year. Even swimming pools are dangerous. A swimming pool can be a great place for fun and exercise, but for children of all ages, it also presents many child injury and accident risks. Drowning is a serious problem this time of year as well. They occur more frequently in backyard pools and landscape pools and beaches, but can also happen in just inches of water.

 

Parents should always practice something called “touch supervision” whenever possible in summer outdoor situations especially with the very young; this means being close enough to reach out to your child at any time. Experts also strongly encourage parents to get certified in CPR and to always make sure their child is wearing an approved flotation device such as a life vest if in or near water. Read signage in parks and theme parks and even at pools and the beach. If your child is injured in the summertime call the personal injury attorneys at Englander Peebles who are available year-round to help parents seek justice and to recover the compensation they deserve for wrongful accidents. Why should you pay for another person’s negligence? Choose a personal injury attorney who can help you protect your rights.

 

The summer holidays are upon us bringing with it a break in busy work schedules and school and more time pool parties, backyard barbecues’, and watersports. Time off in the summer also, unfortunately, means a spike in drunk driving accidents in Miami almost every summer season. At Englander Peebles, we have seen the devastation caused by unnecessary accidents and as a renowned personal injury law firm in Miami, we are ready to work tirelessly in an effort to see that you are well compensated for any personal injuries caused by summer accidents. Some of the most common summer accidents that occur in Miami every year are:

 

  • Swimming Pool Injuries
  • Water Sport Injuries
  • Traffic Accidents
  • Boating Accidents
  • Bicycling Accidents
  • Dog Bites
  • Amusement & Theme park injuries

 

Being injured in any one of these summertime situations and places can be terrifying, especially if you are just visiting Miami. As with any personal injury, your first goal must be getting immediate medical help for the injured person. When possible get a full medical evaluation, take photos, and contact information for any witnesses as well as the names of any people present or employees. Immediately after this, you will need the best personal injury attorney in Miami and should contact the experts at Englander Peebles.
