While the summer months bring plenty of warm weather, they also present chances for you or a family member to be seriously injured. Whether you are engaging in a sporting event, walking around a pool, playing with dogs in a park, or completing a home project, these situations can lead to numerous injuries. If you find yourself injured while engaging in summertime fun, consult with Las Vegas injury lawyers at Albright Stoddard Warnick & Albright.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Since you will spend plenty of time in and around swimming pools during the summer, be careful you are not involved in a slip and fall accident. Due to decks and walkways always being wet, pay extra attention when walking through these areas.

Dog Bites

As the weather gets nicer and nicer during the summer, more and more people are out walking their dogs or taking them to parks for some exercise. Unfortunately, even dogs that seem to be very friendly can quickly get scared and lash out at you, inflicting serious wounds with their bites. To avoid having serious injuries from such an accident, always be very careful when approaching any dog. In addition, always ask the owner’s permission before attempting to pet any dog.

Playground Injuries

If you have children, they will naturally want to spend as much time as possible outside during the summer. This often means plenty of trips to the playground, which while being fun can also be dangerous. When your children are playing on equipment, always inspect it first to make sure there are no sharp edges that could cause serious lacerations. Also, make sure slides and other equipment are cool enough to use, since they can cause painful burns to exposed skin.

If you or your loved ones suffer summertime injuries, speak immediately with Las Vegas injury lawyers at Albright Stoddard Warnick & Albright.
