While everyone looks forward to Summer and warm weather, many people make the mistake of throwing caution to the wind when enjoying their favorite activities. As a result, they find themselves getting seriously injured along the way. In many of these situations, these injuries result due to the carelessness and negligence of others. If you find yourself being injured in a situation that was preventable, do not hesitate to contact a Sacramento and Folsom personal injury lawyer at The Law Office of Black & DePaoli, PC.

Swimming Pools

If you are enjoying yourself around a pool on a warm summer day, be careful. Along with being very slippery, there will likely be many kids running around the area. Because of this, you are at risk of suffering a slip and fall injury that could leave you with broken bones, a concussion, or other serious injuries.


If you take your children to the playground, the plan is to have fun. However, playgrounds in the summer can be prime areas for many types of injuries. Some of the most common include falling due to faulty equipment, suffering burns from hot equipment, and getting severe lacerations from nails or sharp edges on broken playground equipment.

Amusement Parks

Since you and your family will undoubtedly visit at least one amusement park during the summer, caution should be the name of the game while you are there. If you are not careful, you or your family members could suffer head, neck, and back injuries from failing to be instructed on safety guidelines for various rides. In addition, these rides could malfunction, causing broken bones or other injuries.

While most of these injuries are avoidable, many are due to the negligence and carelessness of others. If you or loved ones were injured due to the negligence of others, schedule an immediate consultation with a Sacramento personal injury attorney at The Law Office of Black & DePaoli, PC.
