8 Important Halloween Safety Tips for Trick-or-Treating Pedestrians & Motorists

While Halloween can be full of fun and frights, the really frightening aspect of this holiday may be the threat that it poses to young trick-or-treaters and teenage pedestrians alike. In fact, for pedestrians who are younger than 18 years old, the risk of being fatally hit by a vehicle on Halloween (as compared to any other day of the year) more than doubles.

Keep Halloween safe & fun this year with these safety tips for child pedestrians, a Columbia SC personal injury lawyer explains. Contact us if you’ve been hit by a negligent driver.

And the scary facts for pedestrians on Halloween don’t end there. Researchers have also found that:

  • The majority of the fatal traffic accidents involving pedestrians on Halloween occur between 6 pm and 9 pm, with the hour between 6 and 7 being the deadliest.
  • Less than 1 in 3 pedestrian accidents involving children on Halloween occurs at an intersection or crosswalk.

So, as you and your family gear up for a fun – and safe – Halloween this year, below are some safety tips to keep in mind.

Halloween Safety for Child Pedestrians

  • Make sure trick-or-treaters always stay on the sidewalk or in designated pedestrian areas. If they need to walk somewhere where there are no paths, make sure they walk facing oncoming traffic, as far away from traffic as possible.
  • Warn children to be careful around parked cars and driveways, as vehicles could start moving at any point.
  • Before letting kids out to trick-or-treat, make sure they understand how to safely cross the street (i.e., only cross at designated areas when they have the right-of-way and motorists see them).
  • Make sure all children younger than 12 are accompanied by an adult when they go trick-or-treating.
  • Give children flashlights or glow sticks so they are visible (and they can see) as it gets dark. You may even want to include reflective tape on their costumes and/or treat bags.

Halloween Safety for Drivers

  • Be on the lookout for children, especially when driving in residential areas and/or around schools.
  • Drive at least 5 mph slower in areas where there are children trick-or-treating and be prepared to step on the brakes at any time (as kids can run into traffic).
  • Don’t drive drunk or distracted. Stay alert, as the driving environment on Halloween can be far more complicated.

In-Vehicle Infotainment Systems Significantly Contribute to Driver Distraction, Study Finds

Drivers who use in-vehicle infotainment systems (IVI) systems can take as long as 27 seconds to return their full attention to the road and driving after interacting with these systems, studies commissioned by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety have recently revealed.

The findings of a few new studies indicate that IVI systems can distract drivers for as long as 27 seconds, a Columbia SC personal injury lawyer explains.

In fact, these studies, conducted at the University of Utah, analyzed motorists’ interactions with IVI systems from a range of vehicles to evaluate:

  • How difficult or easy each of these systems are to use
  • How helpful versus distracting infotainment systems ultimately are.

What Researchers Found

  • The more complicated an IVI system’s commands were, the more likely those systems were to distract drivers.
  • Even when drivers issue the right commands to IVI systems, these systems can be distracting. That’s because the systems can misinterpret drivers and fail to carry out the command. This can end up creating lengthy distractions (because the average driver will try to figure out what’s wrong and fix it).
  • Older drivers tended to become more distracted by IVI systems, as they usually have more difficulty fully returning their attention to the road.
  • The IVI system that was the most distracting for drivers (among those tested by researchers) was the one in the Mazda6.
  • The systems that researchers found to be the least distracting for drivers (again, among those tested) included those on the Toyota 4Runner, the Chevrolet Equinox, and the Buick Lacrosse.
  • Even the least distracting systems still distracted drivers for at least 15 seconds.

Given that IVI systems have been introduced as a way to try to limit drivers’ distractions, these findings are pretty interesting – if not noteworthy for transportation safety regulators and lawmakers, AAA says. In fact, AAA plans to share its findings with lawmakers soon. In the meantime, it warns that motorists should operate IVI systems with caution.

Commenting on an unfortunate reality about distracted driving, AAA President Marshall Doney has stated, “The reality is that mental distractions persist and can affect driver attention even after the light turns green.”

How to Protect Your Interests with Auto Accident Claims: What You Can Do

One of the steps in recovering after a traffic accident can be filing an auto insurance claim. These claims can end up getting victims the compensation they need to fix their vehicles and get treatments for their accident-related injuries.

Want to make sure you get the full amount you deserve for an auto accident claim? If so, here’s what you can do, a Columbia SC personal injury attorney explains.

All too often, however, car accident victims end up finding out that the auto accident claims process can be contentious and frustrating, especially if insurance providers are really out to minimize (or try to deny) claims and payouts.

To help victims protect their interests – and potential rights to compensation, below are some of the most important things to do when filing auto accident claims and dealing with insurers following collisions.

The 4 Do’s of Auto Accident Claims: What Motorists Should Know

  1. DO stick to the facts and only the facts – Explain where and when the accident took place, as well as what happened before/during/after the crash. Avoid trying to pin the blame on anyone. And, by all means, avoid accepting the blame for the collision. Just stick to the facts.
  2. DO wait to make an official statement if you aren’t ready – Depending on the insurer, you may be asked pretty early on to give an official statement. Make sure you only do this when you are ready to – meaning that you are clear about the facts and you feel well enough. Making official statements to insurers too early can end up backfiring, as people can just blurt things out that they didn’t mean to say, possibly hurting their claim.
  3. DO provide insurers with your photos and/or other evidence – Make sure you give insurers copies of your accident-related pictures and evidence (of course, retaining originals for yourself). Your evidence can impact their determinations, and you want to make sure they have all of the info they need to see things your way and issue a decision in your favor.
  4. DO keep everything insurers send you and avoid signing/cashing anything – Basically, this point goes towards what you should do to protect yourself just in case anything ends up going south with your claim (like an insurer wrongly denies it or seriously undervalues it). The things to keep in case you need to take further action include any correspondence from insurers, notes about calls insurers have made to you, etc. Also, make sure you never sign anything or cash any checks they send you without carefully reviewing them first (ideally, with the insight of an experienced lawyer) because that could be the end of your claim/could mean that you are inadvertently accepting a settlement or ending your claim.

NHTSA’s Annual 5 to Drive Campaign Kicked Off for National Teen Driver Safety Week

This week is the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) National Teen Driver Safety Week, a yearly campaign aimed at preventing teen driver traffic accidents and saving lives.

The NHTSA is encouraging parents to keep their teen drivers safe by discussing these important driving topics with them, a Columbia SC personal injury attorney explains.

Urging parents to take an active role in this effort, the 5 to Drive campaign is calling on “parents and guardians of teen drivers to discuss with their teens one traffic safety topic each day. Those topics, also the most risky behaviors among teens, include alcohol, texting, failure to wear seat belts, speeding, and riding with extra teen passengers,” as the NHTSA explains.

More on 5 to Drive: 5 Driving Issues to Discuss with Teens

For parents who want to participate in National Teen Driver Safety Week – or who just want to make sure their teen drivers are making safe and responsible choices behind the wheel, here are the 5 main driving issues to talk to teenage motorists about:

  1. Speeding: Speeding kills at least 1,100 teen drivers each year in the U.S.Takeaway for teen drivers: Follow the speed limit, and drive slower than the posted speed limit in poor conditions (like heavy rain or fog).
  2. Impaired driving: Drunk driving alone killed at least 758 teenage drivers in 2013 (the most recent available statistics). More than half of the drivers killed had blood alcohol levels of at least 0.08.Takeaway for teen drivers: Never drive after drinking alcohol and/or doing drugs even if you only feel “buzzed.” Get a ride, call a sober friend or a discrete relative, etc. Just don’t drive.
  3. Distracted driving: Distracted driving is a factor in about 11 percent of the deadly crashes caused by teen motorists. In 2013, more than 315 people were killed by distracted teen drivers. By far, the leading distraction for teen drivers is cellphones and texting.Takeaway for teen drivers: Let the call or text wait. When driving, focus on what you are doing and avoid every distraction. It only takes a few seconds for a deadly accident to happen.
  4. Other teenage passengers: Other teens as passengers can double or even triple the risk of dangerous driving behaviors, like distracted driving, speeding, etc.Takeaway for teen drivers: Be careful about who you drive around. Safety behind the wheel always comes first.
  1. Wearing seatbelts: Buckling up is a must, as more than about 55 percent of the teenagers killed in traffic accidents in 2013 were not buckled up when the collision occurred. Had they been wearing their seatbelt, their risk of suffering a catastrophic or life-threatening injury could have been reduced by as much as 45 percent.Takeaway for teen drivers: Always buckle up, regardless of whether you are the passenger or the driver.

Parents & Students, Next Week Is National School Bus Safety Week

This coming Monday kicks off National School Bus Safety Week (SBSW), an annual campaign dedicated to protecting students who ride the bus by preventing school bus accidents.

With National School Bus Safety Week on its way, here are some accident statistics & safety tips, a Columbia SC personal injury attorney explains.

Operating under the theme Be Smart – Be Seen, I wait in a safe place!, this year’s SBSW is looking to involve “parents, students, teachers, motorists, school bus operators, school administrators and other interested parties – to join forces and address the importance of school bus safety,” as the National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT) explains.

Underscoring the importance of this safety campaign, the followign statistics reveal just how often school bus accidents injure American children.

Why SBSW Is So Important: School Bus Accident Statistics

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), as well as research out of the Columbus Children’s Hospital Center for Injury Research & Policy:

  • Each year, about 17,000 children in the U.S. are rushed to emergency rooms following school bus accidents.
  • Collisions (i.e., buses hitting another vehicle or crashing) comprise about 42 percent – or roughly 7,140 – of these injuries.
  • Accidents that occur when children are boarding or getting off of the bus comprise about 25 percent – or 4,250 – of these injuries.
  • Annually, about 9 children are killed in school bus accidents.

While these statistics may make you think twice about sending your children to school on the bus, school buses are still the safest way for children to get to school, researchers and transportation safety officials say. That’s because:

  • Children have far greater chances of getting hurt in a passenger vehicle/traffic accident than in a school bus accident.
  • The 17,000 injuries and 9 fatalities only represent a small fraction – less than one percent, in fact – of the total number of children who are safely transported to schools on buses each year in the U.S. (about 23.5 million, says the NHTSA).

Preventing School Bus Accidents: Safety Tips for Students

  • Get to the bus stop at least 5 minutes early.
  • Wait between 6 and 10 giant steps back from where the bus will stop.
  • Don’t approach the bus until it has come to a full stop, the door is open and the driver indicates it is OK to get onboard.
  • If you need to cross the street to get on the bus (or after getting off of the bus), make sure the bus is fully stopped, the driver sees you and that you look both ways (left, right & left again) before crossing. Never cross if there are other oncoming vehicles, the bus is moving or you don’t have the right-of-way.
  • Never walk behind the bus or try to pick things up from alongside or beneath the bus.
  • Avoid distractions when it’s time to board or get off of the bus, and pay attention to your surroundings.

Top 15 Most Dangerous Items in Schools

School may not be as safe as you think for children, as some of most basic equipment at schools injures thousands of kids each year.

This is according to researchers at Health Grove, who recently evaluated data from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in order to rank the most dangerous equipment and products at schools, based on the number of injuries they cause annually to American children. And their findings may shock you.

Items in Schools that Cause the Most Injuries to Children

  1. Do you know what items in schools cause the most harm to students? If not, check this list out, a Columbia SC personal injury lawyer explains.

    Playground equipment, which injures more than 60,000 children each year – Falling off of equipment, defective equipment and poorly designed playground equipment are among the biggest dangers to schoolkids.

  2. Rugs, carpets and other flooring materials, which cause more than 26,700 children to be injured annually – Tripping, slipping and falling is among the primary threat to students’ safety when it comes to floor-related accidents (especially those that are broken or poorly maintained)
  3. Stairs, which hurt more than 24,400 children in the U.S. each year – Falling down the stairs presents the biggest risk to students, and this is more likely to occur when stairs are not properly maintained, stairwells are not sufficiently lit, etc.
  4. Desks, tables and other furniture (not including beds and chairs) , which cause upwards of 20,600 injuries annually – Furniture falling on top of children or collapsing generally presents the biggest threat to students.
  5. Ceilings and walls, which result in upwards of 16,600 children being injured at American schools each year – Playing in doors is usually the biggest risk for kids when it comes to wall- and ceiling-related accidents and injuries.
  6. Doors (not including garage doors) , which cause more than 13,400 children to be hurt at school annually – Getting appendages or digits slammed in doors is among the primary causes of door-related injuries at schools.
  7. Couches and chairs, which harm more than 10,600 American schoolchildren each year – Falling off of these pieces of furniture tends to cause the most injuries to students.
  8. Lockers, which cause more than 7,500 schoolchildren to be hurt annually – As with door-related injuries, locker-related injuries tend to arise from getting digits or appendages slammed in shutting doors.
  9. Poles, which harm more than 5,800 students each year – Running into poles and poles falling on children generally present the biggest risks to students.
  10. Writing utensils, which cause upwards of 5,700 injuries to students annually – Accidental stabbings and cuts tend to be the main causes of pen- and pencil-related injuries to students.
  11. Knives, which cause at least 3,400 American students to be harmed annually – Not including intentional knife attacks, knife-related injuries at schools are typically caused by mishandling or misusing knives.
  12. Fences, which injure more than 3,300 schoolchildren each year – Broken fences, as well as those that haven’t been maintained, are most likely to harm students.
  13. Power tools, which cause at least 3,200 injuries to schoolchildren annually – Inexperience using tools, as well as tool malfunctions, tend to present the biggest risks to students.
  14. Bicycles, which hurt at least 3,100 students each year – Falling off of bicycles and getting hit by motor vehicles tend to be the primary causes of bicycle-related injuries to students.
  15. Other, non-power tools, which cause more than 2,900 students to be injured annually – As with power tools, non-power tools tend to harm students when these tools are mishandled or when they malfunction.

The Top 4 Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries in the U.S.

The leading causes of TBIs in the US may surprise you. Contact our Columbia SC personal injury lawyer if your TBI was caused by negligence.

The leading causes of TBIs in the US may surprise you. Contact our Columbia SC personal injury lawyer if your TBI was caused by negligence.

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can be some of the most debilitating and difficult injuries to overcome. That’s generally because TBIs can have elusive symptoms, complicated diagnoses and uncertain prognoses.

Although researchers around the world are currently working to develop better ways to diagnose and treat TBIs, perhaps, one of the most effective things that can be done at this point is attempting to prevent them entirely.

To do that, it’s first important to understand the primary causes of traumatic brain injuries.

Most Common TBI Causes

  1. Falling accidents, which cause just over 40 percent of all TBIs in the U.S. – Although people can fall down and sustain a TBI because they weren’t paying attention, in many cases, falls are caused by unsafe premises and the negligence of some other party.A building manager’s failure to fix a broken stair railing or warn people about dangerous areas of a property are a few examples of the forms of negligence that can lead to falling accidents that result in traumatic brain injuries.
  2. Being struck by or against something, which results in nearly 16 percent of all TBIs – This can be the result of a variety of accidents, including work accidents, construction accidents, etc. Negligence in the form of defective equipment or even a failure to comply with standard safety regulations can cause these types of striking accidents and lead to TBIs.
  3. Motor vehicle accidents, which cause more than 14 percent of traumatic brain injuries – The risk of a head injury can be far greater for certain types of roadway travelers, like motorcycle riders who don’t wear helmets or even those in passenger vehicles who don’t wear seatbelts.Drunk driving, driver distraction and even a failure to comply with traffic laws are all examples of the types of negligence that can cause motor vehicle accidents and brain injuries.
  4. Assaults, which contribute to nearly 11 percent of all TBIs.

It’s important to note that, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the causes of about 19 percent of TBIs are classified as “unknown.”

Tips for Preventing TBIsKnowing the most prominent causes of traumatic brain injuries, here are few things that can be done to minimize your (and others’) risk of sustaining a TBI:

  • Reduce your risk of falling at home by maintaining stair railings, fixing worn/broken flooring and installing no-slip features in bathrooms.
  • When out in public, reduce your risk of falling by being careful about where you step and avoiding distractions.
  • Reduce your risk of a motor vehicle accident by always complying with traffic laws, not driving distracted and always being a defense driver. Also, always wear your seatbelt in cars and helmet on motorcycles.

Personal Injury Lawsuit FAQs: Important Info for Injured People

For helpful answers about personal injury cases, read these FAQs. For superior representation in a PI case, contact our Columbia SC personal injury attorney.

Physically and emotionally recovering from a personal injury can be difficult and take some time, as the nature of the injury may require months – if not years – of treatment.

What can help victims in these situations is pursuing compensation via a personal injury lawsuit, as this can help people cover their expenses and needs as they focus on healing. It can also provide them with some sense of justice after being harmed by negligence.

Below are some help answers for injured people who may be considering moving forward with a personal injury case.

Answers about Personal Injury Cases: What Prospective Plaintiffs Should Know

Q – How do I know if I have a personal injury case?

A – The best way to find out if you have a viable personal injury claim is to contact one of our Columbia SC lawyers today for a free, no obligations case evaluation.

Until then, what we can tell you is that you likely have a case if your injuries were caused by the negligence of some other party. Some of the more common types of accidents or incidents that serve as the basis for personal injury claims include (but are by no means exclusive to):

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Dangerous or defective products
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Unsafe premises.

Q – How quickly do I need to file my case?

A – Within three (3) years of the date of your accident or the date on which you became aware of your injuries, according to South Carolina law. Outside of this window of time, injured people will typically lose their chances to seek compensation via a personal injury lawsuit.

Here, we want to note that the sooner these cases are filed, the stronger they tend to be because there is usually more available evidence to support injured people’s claims. This, in turn, can end up meaning that injured people have way better chances of securing the full amount of compensation to which they are entitled when they move forward with their cases sooner (rather than waiting months or longer to file).

Q – Will my case have to go to trial?

A – Maybe. Whether a case goes to trial will hinge on the defendant’s (i.e., the negligent party’s) willingness to resolve the case versus fight it. This, in turn, can depend on the nature of the negligence – and the specific defendant(s) – involved.

In many cases, whether a case will need to proceed to trial will not become clear until the personal injury claim is already well underway and there have been some attempts to try to negotiate a pre-trial settlement.

Q – What is the best way for me to get started?

A – Simply contact us today. If you have a case and choose to move forward with one of our Columbia SC lawyers, you can be confident that we will handle everything necessary to get your case started for you.

With Chappell Smith & Arden, P.A.t on your side, you can also rest assured that you will be informed about your case as it moves forward and that you will have the best chances of maximizing your financial recovery.
