Halloween Danger

Safety experts have long warned that Halloween is the most dangerous night of the year for child pedestrians.  Excited trick or treaters can easily be struck by a vehicle.  At the law office of Attorney Douglas V. Stoehr, we have experience handling cases in which pedestrians are struck by vehicles. 

Attorney Douglas V. Stoehr, would recommend that parents talk to their children about safety no matter how old they are before going out on Halloween night.  Some safety tips to help prevent injuries include, always cross at crosswalks, carry flashlights, wear reflective clothing and avoid masks that limit vision.  So be safe out there, and have a good time, but if the unfortunate does happen, Attorney Douglas Stoehr and Attorney Aaron Ling are here to discuss your potential claim. 
For those trick or treaters taking to the streets in Altoona, remember that “Trick or Treat Night,” is scheduled for Thursday, October 31st, from 6 to 8 p.m.  However, dates and times may be different for outlying communities.  For dates and times in Hollidaysburg, Bellwood, Tyrone, and Roaring Spring check with your local municipality.  Again, please be safe and have fun.
