    Top Five Summertime Accidents

    Picture of car crash acciden

    Summertime…and the livin’ is easy. Unless, of course, you’re involved in an accident.

    Unfortunately, the many fun activities that are associated with summer living can also be dangerous. Let’s take a look at the top five summertime accidents that can occur if you’re not careful.


    Barbecues and backyard cookouts are a great way to relax with your friends, but the combination of open fire and alcohol can lead to burns. Burns and other injuries from fireworks and fire pits are also common summertime accidents.

    Car Accidents

    Between road trips and cruisin’ around to visit friends and family, car accidents spike during the summertime – especially when drivers are intoxicated or distracted behind the wheel. Never get behind the wheel after you’ve been drinking. If you’re headed to a Fourth of July party or just enjoying some beachside cocktails with your friends, make sure to arrange for a designated driver.


    It feels wonderful to go for a refreshing swim in the pool, lake, or ocean, but drownings can happen very quickly and turn your beach day into a tragedy. Again, boating or swimming while intoxicated is a very dangerous idea. Exercise extreme caution when you’re on or near the water, particularly if your swimming skills are limited.

    Bicycle accidents

    Sadly, some drivers still don’t know how to share the road. Whether you’re riding a bicycle for fun, for exercise, or as a way to commute, bicycle summertime accidents are a common source of injuries.

    Amusement park accidents

    The thrills and chills of riding a rollercoaster or other attraction at an amusement park is big business, and a big draw for summer crowds. However, some 4,000 people are injured every year while on an amusement park ride. Most of these are minor — scrapes, cuts, or whiplash — but some such summertime accidents can cause serious injury. In the most tragic cases, people can even be killed when ejected from a roller coaster.

    If any of these accidents befall you, you may want to consult with a personal injury attorney to see if you have a case.

    "In over 25 years of practice on the defense side of malpractice cases, Jeff Mitchell is the attorney I fear most. He takes very good cases. Jeff has the medicine and the applicable literature down cold. He is without a doubt the best cross-examiner I have ever seen. I have paid his clients a lot of money over the years."
