Halloween Safety Tips Provided by Texas Injury Lawyers at Barrus Law GroupEven in Texas, there is a nip in the air as Halloween is upon us.  For the kids, this is one of the most exciting times of the year – carving pumpkins, picking costumes, and of course – the loads of candy the come from trick-or-treating all add to the excitement of Halloween.  However, sadly, as a San Antonio injury lawyer, I have found that Halloween is one of the most dangerous nights of the year, especially for our youngsters.  As such, the Barrus Law Group offers the following safety tips to keep you and your children safe this Halloween:

  1. Proper Supervision – while Halloween is a lot of fun for the kids, adults tend to party it up on Halloween night as well.  And unfortunately, many irresponsible drivers will choose to drink and drive on Halloween, especially in San Antonio, which has an unusually high number of drunk driving related accidents each year.  As parents it’s important to keep our youngsters safe by offering proper supervision during trick-or-treating.  Keeping children inside of residential areas, and shuttling them across busy roadways is one way to help keep the kiddos safe.
