Back to School Accidents
As children and many young adults head back to school, it can expose everyone to new injury risks. For example, traffic is often heavier when school is in sessions, and new traffic patterns can increase the chances of a serious motor vehicle accident. In addition, students who bike or walk to school expose themselves to the risk of involvement in a bicycle or pedestrian accident. Finally, there is a wide variety of accidents that can happen at school, including slip and fall accidents, recreational or sports accidents, playground accidents, and incidents involving negligent supervision.
