Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Claims
It is officially October and Halloween is just a few weeks away. While Halloween can be full of spooks and fun, the real nightmare of this holiday is the threat that it poses to trick-or-treaters. For those under the age of 18 years old, the risk of being fatally hit by a vehicle on Halloween, compared to any other day of the year, more than doubles.
The scary statistics for pedestrians on Halloween doesn’t end there. Studies show that the majority of the fatal traffic accidents involving pedestrians on Halloween occur between 6pm and 9pm. The hour between 6 and 7 is the deadliest. On that same note, less than 1 in 3 pedestrian accidents involving children on Halloween occur at intersections or crosswalks.
