Memorial Day weekend is a time for celebration, but it can also be dangerous. Many people suffer injuries during this holiday. Understanding common accidents and knowing how to strengthen your case can make a significant difference. Fielding Law is here to help.

Common Memorial Day Weekend Injuries

Car Accidents: With more people traveling, the risk of car accidents increases. Distracted driving, speeding, and impaired driving are common causes.

Boating Accidents: Many people enjoy boating during the holiday. Unfortunately, this leads to accidents caused by inexperience, alcohol, and overcrowded waterways.

Slip and Fall Incidents: Outdoor activities and gatherings can result in slip and fall accidents, especially around pools and wet surfaces.

Fireworks Injuries: Celebrations often include fireworks, which can cause serious injuries if not handled properly.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents: With more people outdoors, bicycle and pedestrian accidents become more common.

Tips to Strengthen Your Case

  1. Seek Medical Attention: Always get medical help immediately after an injury. This ensures your well-being and documents your injuries.
  2. Gather Evidence: Take photos of the accident scene, your injuries, and any property damage. Collect witness statements if possible.
  3. Report the Incident: Notify the proper authorities, whether it is the police for a car accident or the Coast Guard for a boating accident.
  4. Keep Records: Save all medical bills, repair estimates, and correspondence related to the accident. This documentation is crucial for your case.
  5. Avoid Social Media: Refrain from posting about the accident on social media. Insurance companies may use your posts against you.
