Swimming Pool Safety for the Summer

Swimming pool safety in Boulder COHot temperatures are the name of the game across Boulder this July. It's the perfect time of year to enjoy swimming with your family at Front Range pools and waterparks.

Swimming pool safety in Boulder COHot temperatures are the name of the game across Boulder this July. It's the perfect time of year to enjoy swimming with your family at Front Range pools and waterparks. Swimming is a healthy, fun activity that gets you and your children out of the house, and lets you cool off on the summer's hottest days.

As a parent, it's completely rational to be concerned about your child's safety while they're in the pool. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death among children ages 1 through 4. Unfortunately, personal injury attorneys are all too familiar with the catastrophic and sometimes fatal injuries that can occur because of unsafe pool drains or defective pool equipment. We also know that many pool injuries can be prevented.

You can keep your little ones safe by providing supervision, making sure your child knows the rules, and by ensuring your home pool is properly equipped:

  • The pool should be surrounded with a fence that is at least 4 feet high, and that has a self-latching gate.
  • For added precaution, install a pool alarm that sounds when someone enters the pool.
  • Children in the pool area must be supervised.
  • Keep children who are swimming within arm's reach.
  • Avoid distractions while supervising children in the pool.
  • Establish pool rules, such as no running or diving.
  • Enroll your children in swimming classes so they have the skills to enjoy the pool safely!

Do you think your child's pool injury may have been the result of someone else's negligence? If so, we encourage you to call Jeffress Law for a free case review. Our experienced Boulder, Colorado injury attorney will make sure you know all of your options. Please call the law firm of Christopher Jeffress at 303-993-8685.

If you are visiting Lyons, make sure you are aware of traffic before crossing streets, even if the signal indicates it’s your turn. There is an average of one fatal pedestrian accident every two hours in the United States and more than 150,000 pedestrians are treated in hospitals for accident-related injuries every year.

Authorities suspect the Sunshine Fire, like 90% of all wildfires, was human caused. If you have been injured by a fire you did not start, Boulder personal injury lawyer Chris Jeffress can help.The fire burning near Sunshine Canyon and Timber Trail is suspected to have been caused by humans. This is, sadly, unsurprising. The National Parks Services reports that 90% of all wildfires are human caused – often by careless campers, inattentive hikers or, in what seems to be the most flagrant disrespect for human, animal, and vegetative life, discarded cigarette butts. Thankfully, no one has been injured by the Sunshine Fire as of yet and no buildings have been destroyed. But what are your rights if you are injured in a fire caused by someone else?

Burn injury is often very serious. Disfigurement, paralysis, nerve and muscle damage, and debilitating pain are all possible with this type of injury – and fire is the leading cause of burn injury in the United States. When your injuries are the result of someone else’s poor decisions or deliberately irresponsible behavior, you may be entitled to seek compensation through legal action. The best way to determine if your injury gives you cause to file suit is through a one-on-one consultation with Boulder personal injury attorney Christopher Jeffress. During this consultation, Attorney Jeffress will carefully assess the damages you have suffered, discuss all of your legal options, and help you decide if filing suit is the best course of action.

Burn injuries, particularly those caused by fire, can result in a lifetime of medical expenses, physical discomfort, and emotional suffering. Victims of burn injury are entitled to seek compensation for these damages and more. Please contact Jeffress Law online or by calling our Boulder office at 303-993-8685 to schedule your free consultation and learn how we can help. Attorney Jeffress serves victims of serious injury living throughout Northern Colorado including the communities of Lyons, Nederland, Estes Park, and Niwot.

Boulder Shuts Down. Driving Does Not

More than a foot of snow was dumped on Boulder between Wednesday and Thursday, prompting the closing of city schools and government offices as drivers were advised to stay home. This is fairly standard along Colorado’s Front Range communities following big storms. Unfortunately, not everyone is able to stay home and, while street department crews work tirelessly to make roads passable, everyone in a vehicle is at increased risk for serious or even fatal injury.

Unfortunately, not everyone is able to stay home and, while street department crews work tirelessly to make roads passable, everyone in a vehicle is at increased risk for serious or even fatal injury.

Car accidents in Boulder increase when storms roll in. While not exclusive to our city, our location makes us prime for several significant snowfalls each year – making it absolutely vital that you know how to drive properly in snowy conditions. Some of the most basic steps include:

  • Have you been injured by a bad winter driver? Call Boulder car accident lawyer Christopher Jeffress at 303-993-8685 to learn how we can helpDrive slowly
  • Allow for at least five car-lengths between you and the vehicle in front of you
  • Keep your headlights on
  • Try to avoid braking and brake slowly when needed

Remember, it takes much more time to stop on wet, slippery, and snowy roads. Caution, courtesy, and attention are all essential for safe winter driving. Avoid alcohol and other intoxicants if you are going to drive and make sure you leave your cellphone out of sight to avoid distraction as well. Taking these steps will help prevent your causing an accident, injuring yourself or others.

Safe drivers are not invulnerable to the dangers posed by inexperienced, aggressive, or careless winter drivers. If you are injured or a loved one is killed by someone driving recklessly in the snow, please call 303-993-8685 or contact Jeffress Law online to schedule a free consultation with our Boulder personal injury lawyer and learn how we can help you get maximum compensation. 

Halloween and Pedestrian Accidents

Children in Boulder are twice as likely to be injured in a pedestrian accident on Halloween night. Here are some Safety Tips from Boulder personal injury attorney Christopher JeffressAccording to SafeKids.Org, 12% of children five and younger are allowed to trick or treat without adult supervision. Sadly, this absolutely plays a role in the near doubling of fatal pedestrian traffic accidents that occur on Halloween night. Young children, unsupervised, may not exercise caution in the same manner as older and more experienced kids. If you are planning on letting your little one head out alone this year, please take time to instruct them in safe behaviors to help ensure everyone has a safe and happy Halloween.

As a general rule, children younger than 12 should be accompanied by an adult for trick or treating. However, if you are not accompanying your children, please be sure to:

  • Apply reflective tape to costumes and treat bags
  • Provide glow-sticks, flashlights, or headlamps to be used in between houses
  • Select costumes that use face paint instead of vision-obstructing masks
  • Make sure costumes are the right size to prevent slip and fall accidents

In addition, it is important that you talk to your child about:

  • Staying on sidewalks and in well-lit areas
  • Only crossing the street at crosswalks and on green signals
  • Looking both ways –twice– before crossing a street
  • Staying with their group

These steps can help protect your child from injury, but may not be enough to prevent the dangerous behaviors of others from causing harm. If your child sustains an injury this Halloween due to the reckless or careless behavior of someone else, please contact Jeffress Law to schedule a free consultation and learn more about your rights. Christopher Jeffress helps families living in Boulder, Longmont, Broomfield, and surrounding areas get fair compensation following injury.
