It’s Halloween time once again! For kids (and even more so for some adults), this ‘spooky’ holiday can be one of the most exciting nights of the year.
While you’re out creating great memories, it’s important to be safe so, in the future, you can look back on this Halloween night with a smile. If anything did happen, we at Richard Harris Law Firm care about you and will be here to help. As accident, medical malpractice, and disability attorneys, our expert legal team is very familiar with personal injury and liability issues – and we recommend avoiding them.
For some tips on what you can do to have a safer Halloween, check out this acrostic for Halloween Safety from the Center For Disease Control:
Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories should be short, soft, and flexible.
Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult.
Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you.
Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. Limit the amount of treats
Hold a flashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see and others see you. Always WALK and don’t
run from house to house.
Always test make-up in a small area first. Remove it before bedtime to prevent possible skin and eye irritation.
Look both ways before crossing the street. Use established crosswalks wherever possible.
Lower your risk for serious eye injury by not wearing decorative contact lenses.
Only walk on sidewalks whenever possible, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe.
Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls.
Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers.
Enter homes only if you’re with a trusted adult. Only visit well-lit houses. Don’t stop at dark houses. Never accept rides from strangers.
Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear flame-resistant costumes.
