The first week of July is an ideal time for barbecues, road trips, and fireworks,primarily due to the Fourth of July, but with this comes a higher-than-average risk of being a victim of negligence, recklessness, or intoxicated driving. If you’ve been injured in an accident due to another’s negligence, speak with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

Common examples of negligence on the road during this time of year include:

- Intoxicated driving - Distracted driving - Aggressive/reckless driving - Speeding - Failing to use turn signals - Failing to obey traffic laws and signs

Boat operators also owe a legal duty of care to others to act with reason and caution on the water, and common types of boating negligence include speeding, operating a boat while intoxicated, and operating a boat without proper licensing/registration, without proper experience and training, or in unauthorized areas.

While it’s well-known that improper use of fireworks can result in serious burns and injuries, some such injuries may be due to defectively designed or manufactured fireworks – or improper/inadequate warning labels – and the manufacturer may be legally liable for any accidents or injuries resulting directly from the product’s defective design or manufacture.
