Halloween Safety Tips – Practicing Safe Habits for Halloween

Our Sacramento injury attorneys want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable Halloween season this year. Below are some safety tips to keep in mind as you plan your Halloween events.

  • Halloween Safety for Costumes

When you choose a Halloween costume for your child, you need to make sure the costume fits correctly. You do not want your child tripping over a costume. Also, make sure your child’s eyes are uncovered so he or she can see clearly. Because many masks obstruct clear views, consider using face paint instead of a mask.

For dark-colored costumes, you need to trim the costume in reflective tape or material to ensure motorists see your child. You can also use flashing LED lights as accessories and have your child carry a flashlight.

Pretend weapons may not be the best choice for Halloween costumes this year. The level of anxiety in some neighborhoods about weapons is higher than normal. If you use a toy sword or knife, make sure that it is soft with no sharp edges in case your child falls.

  • Halloween Safety for Trick-or-Treating

Do not let children go trick-or-treating without an adult. Also, it is usually safer to go out in groups than alone. Stay on sidewalks or as close the edge of the road as possible. Glow sticks and flashlights are a good idea to help children see where they are stepping in addition to making children more visible to motorists.

It is also a good idea to trick-or-treat in areas where you know the homeowners. If you are concerned, you can usually find numerous churches and other organizations that host alternative activities to trick-or-treating on Halloween.

Make sure that your children know they cannot have any candy or other items until you examine it carefully at home. Search through your child’s Halloween candy and dispose of any candy that is not wrapped, appears homemade (unless you know the person), or appears to be tampered with in some way.

Client Testimonials

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.

S.B. Testimonial

Here's the thing... Nobody really thinks much about lawyers until they need one.  Well, we needed one!  The Tieman Law Firm came through for us in a big way. They were professional, courteous, thorough, and had excellent staff as well.  Highly recommended...

Jereme S. Testimonial

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

Hanna Padilla Testimonial

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

Matt H. Testimonial

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.
