Every year, hundreds of children across the U.S. are seriously injured or even killed after being struck by vehicles. Halloween night is one of the riskiest nights for pedestrians, especially children. If your child is going trick-or-treating tonight, keep these tips in mind to reduce their risks:

  1. Accompany young children—Don’t let young children trick-or-treat unaccompanied by an adult. Whether you, your spouse, or another adult is accompanying your child, the adult should ensure that the children stick to sidewalks and crosswalks and that they only cross the street when they have a walk signal or are waved through by a crossing guard.
  2. No masks while walking—If your child’s costume includes a mask that limits their vision, have them take it off or pull it up over their face while they’re walking. Masks that obscure vision can put kids in danger when walking near traffic.
  3. Avoid long costumes—Long costumes that drag on the ground, including costumes with robes or capes, can be tripping hazards, especially for children. Avoid these costumes when possible, and if your child’s costume is too long, trim or pin it so that it doesn’t touch the ground or interfere with his or her ability to walk.

These tips can help kids walk safely from house to house tonight, but kids and their parents still need to be aware of vehicles even in residential areas and subdivisions. At Ponce Law, we’re always available to help Middle Tennesseans who have been injured by negligent drivers, and that includes on Halloween night.

    I highly recommend Ponce Law for injury claims. I was in and auto accident in Dec 2021, and a friend recommended this firm. They worked hard to get the best settlement possible for me. Natalie (atty) and Taylor (paralegal) are terrific. Again, highly recommended!

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
