Woodland Hills personal injury lawyer Barry P. Goldberg has noticed a shift. Within about a week, kids and their families have gone from playing around the pool and enjoying popsicles to getting in the car and either preparing for the school year or actually starting “Back to School!” With this change in ritual, comes more and more automobile accidents, auto v. pedestrian accidents and bicycle accidents.
While we are certain that there exists statistical data to back up this phenomenon, even the most casual observer can see tons of stressed out moms running to stores to buy clothes and school supplies. In addition, the traffic patterns change as kids are actually returning to school—and for the first time in 3 months—they are late. Further, kids have grown a year. So, maybe they are finally old enough to walk or ride a bike to school.Details
