Safety declines during the hot summer. Stay safe.

The National Safety Council and many other organizations observe National Safety Month during June. This year, the NSC is asking Americans to focus on summer safety concerns. The council says that the summer months see a spike in preventable deaths each year, with fatal accidents peaking during the months of July and August.

Many people take time-off from work to travel with the kids during the summer. Motor vehicle accidents are well-known as a leading cause of preventable deaths -- as well as wrongful deaths. There is a distinction between a fatal accident that is preventable and a wrongful death that is caused by the negligent act of someone else.
