Common Injury Risks in the Fall

With the temperatures cooling off a bit in the Orlando area, many people are celebrating that fall is in full swing. Whether you like decorating for Halloween or enjoying a pumpkin spice latte, you should also be aware of the changing accident and injury risks that come with the changing seasons.

School-Related Injuries

With schools in session come all of the risks to children related to the school year. These include:

  • Pedestrian accidents on the way to school
  • Bicycle accidents on the way to school
  • School bus crashes
  • Playground injuries
  • Negligent security of the school leading to injuries
  • Improper supervision to prevent fights or bullying

Talk to your child about school safety, but know there is still the chance that someone else can cause them to suffer injuries.

Accidents on Your Commute

As fall sets in, the sun rises later and sets earlier and earlier. This often means changing light conditions during your commute to and from work. The sun may now be glaring in your eyes the entire way home when it was not before, and this can affect the way many drivers behave. In addition, fall rainstorms can create wet and slippery roads, which can increase the risks of traffic crashes.

Halloween Injuries

Halloween is a fun and festive fall holiday, with costumes, parties, trick-or-treating, and more. With this holiday comes many risks, however, including:

  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Trip and falls
  • Drunk driving crashes
  • Increased crime
