Indianapolis Personal Injury Lawyers Discuss Summer Accident Risks

Summer is here in Indiana. During this time of year, it’s important to recognize that the risks of certain types of accidents tend to rise during summer months. That’s why Stewart & Stewart Attorneys would like to make you aware of two of the most common accidents this time of year.

Car Accidents

Students are out of school, and families tend to travel a lot more between Memorial Day and Labor Day, putting more vehicles on the road each day. Our Indianapolis car accident attorneys explain that higher traffic volumes tend to correlate with more highway deaths—there were 233 Indiana traffic fatalities between June-August 2012. Our Indiana car accident attorneys point out that these three months also had the highest fatality counts for the entire year.

Dog Bites

Data indicates that the number of dog bite injury victims tends to increase during summer months as well. According to Greensburg Daily News, dog owners should double check their homeowner’s insurance policies to ensure bite accidents are covered. It’s also a good time to discuss caution when approaching strange dogs with children.
