Halloween Premises Safety

With many parents and children alike getting ready to head out for Halloween trick or treating this evening, it is important to keep a few things regarding safety in mind. As children run from house to house in an effort to try and get as much candy as they can, it is important to be aware of the dangers that may lie on other people’s property. The sun sets early this time of year so many trick or treaters may be going from door to door in the dark, making it difficult to see any hazards.

Property owners often decorate their lawns and front door steps for Halloween. While property owners often don’t intend to cause someone harm, accidents can happen due to negligence and the victim can face serious injuries. It is important for property owners to make sure their properties are safe for trick or treaters. If a parent or a child trips and falls on someone else’s property, they may be seriously injured. They may also be subject to high medical expenses, a parent may lose wages taking care of the child or being injured themselves, and even the possible costs of rehabilitation.

An injured party may be able to bring a successful lawsuit if they can prove that the property owner was negligent. An experienced attorney can help you recover damages for the injuries you have faced.
