Here are four common causes of holiday shopping injuries known by every experienced Dallas injury lawyer, and some easy ways to avoid them.

Safer Costume Design Means a Safer Halloween

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on October 22, 2014

Halloween and fall festival parties top the list of favorite holidays for many Texas kids. Parents, caregivers and teachers can help make these holidays more fun and memorable for kids by keeping safety tips in mind.

Every year, experienced personal injury lawyers throughout Texas talk to families whose children have been injured due to a thoughtless or careless costume design. You can help reduce the risk of a costume-related injury for those you love by planning out costumes that are less likely to cause accidents. For example:

  • Choose a costume kids can move in. Have your child try on the costume before you buy. Can the child move freely? Does the costume allow the child to walk normally, without holding a long cape, billowing skirt or other item out of the way? Can the child wear his or her normal shoes with the outfit? If the costume has a mask, does it allow for full range of vision? Read the rest »

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on October 20, 2014

Halloween, harvest parties, football games and other fall events call for a party! If you’re planning to throw a get-together during the autumn months, keep these safety tips in mind so that your guests can enjoy themselves without an unexpected illness or injury ruining their fall fun.

When you throw a party, keep the following safety tips provided by experienced Dallas injury lawyers in mind:

Help your guests of all ages avoid overindulging by offering healthy, alcohol-free foods and snacks, like fruit, vegetables, crackers and cheese. If you serve alcohol at a party, close the “bar” at least an hour before the party’s scheduled end time and start passing around dessert or coffee instead. Read the rest »
