Staying Safe On Halloween Night In Chicago

With Halloween night finally here, please take proper safety precautions to avoid an injury.

Always Trick or Treat in Groups

If your child is young, go trick or treating with them. If your child is old enough that you feel comfortable allowing them to trick or treat without an adult, they should go out in a group with similar-aged peers. Make sure at least one of the children in the group has a cell phone so they can call an adult if there is an emergency.

Visibility Should Be a Priority

By the end of October, the days are fairly short. Prepare for evening trick or treating by equipping your child with reflective tape and a flashlight. There are two components to visibility: your child’s visibility to motorists and other pedestrians, and your child’s own visibility of their surroundings. Make sure all masks fit correctly and have eye holes that allow your child to see through clearly.

Discuss Safety Precautions When Out Walking

Talk to your children about crossing the street safely while they are out trick or treating so as to avoid any pedestrian accidents. This includes crossing at the crosswalk, making eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them, and walking, not running, across the street.

Find a Costume that Fits

Help your child find a costume that fits them, rather than one that will drag on the ground and potentially be a tripping or fire hazard. If your child’s costume is too long or baggy, hem or cut the loose parts to make it easier for your child to wear.

Have a Happy and SAFE Halloween night!

"There are all kinds of reasons why you might need a lawyer at some point(s) in your life. Whatever the reason, what you want is someone that understands you, advises you properly (hey, our emotions can override our intellect), works hard on your behalf and is willing to go the distance. Phil Berenz is just this kind of lawyer. I had a situation where I needed the assistance of a lawyer and fortunately he was recommended to me. Phil can walk that delicate line of completely understanding --feeling your pain--to giving you the best advice based on his experience. Some lawyers may tell you what you want to hear to run up your fees. Not Phil.
He's a top-notch negotiator and has the patience to build relationships with the opposing side to gain the best benefit for the client. He is very skillful at understanding the psyche of the other parties.
I could go on and on, but basically what I want to say -- if you need a lawyer, call Phil. If he doesn't have the expertise that you require, he'll recommend you to someone that does and you can be sure they will be of a high calibre too."
