It’s almost time for Halloween, and while this is typically a fun holiday for children (and some adults), it can also be when unexpected car and pedestrian accidents occur. Consider these scary statistics:

  • Halloween is the single deadliest day for children and pedestrian car accidents.
  • Only 30% of pedestrian Halloween accidents occur at crosswalks or intersections. The vast majority occur in other places, such as when someone darts out of a driveway or slips between parked cars.
  • 63% of trick-or-treaters don’t carry a flashlight.
  • Approximately 83% have no reflective clothing or reflective tape on their costumes.
  • It’s estimated that as little as a third of all parents discuss Halloween safety with their children.
  • 52% of auto accident fatalities on Halloween are alcohol-related.
  • 85% of parents bring alcohol to Halloween parties.

The statistics show that the combination of millions of children excitedly running around in the dark, often without items that will make them more visible, combined with an increased number of drivers on the road after consuming alcohol, makes for a very deadly combination.

Beware of Frightening Accidents on Halloween

Being in an accident is always a shock but even more unexpected on a day that’s usually filled with fun and excitement. If you’re involved in a Halloween accident, do your best to keep your wits about you and remember the following:

  • Getting help for the injured is the top priority—call 911 and clearly describe where you are.
  • Set out flares and make sure everyone is out of harm’s way, so the first accident doesn’t cause a second.
  • Get complete contact information from anyone else involved in the accident and any witnesses who may have seen what happened.

Michael T. Testimonial

I sat down and met with Jelena Tiemann about my vehicle accident.I presented all of my documentation to her in which she gave me her assessment.Although the Tiemann Law Firm wont be representing me because my settlement offer was pretty good she was very clear,forward and professional about what she felt could and couldn't be done.I recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a helping hand at fighting a case where you don't have to worry about the outcome not going in your favor. Please don't review this business if you received a freebie for writing this review, or if you're connected in any way to the owner or employees.

Herb T. Testimonial

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

Jennifer T. Testimonial

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.
