Summer Fun Leads to Accidents

By

During the warmer summer months, many of us are outside more often soaking up the sun and doing the things we love to do. Hanging out at the beach, by the lake, or spending time on other fun family outings are a big part of summer – but they also increase the chances of being injured or killed in an accident, studies find.

Over the years, the number of accident-related claim payments filed to Unum during summer has averaged nearly 15 percent higher than any other time of the year, the report found.

It's pretty simple. More time spent driving on vacation means we’re more likely to be involved in a traffic accident. Being around the ocean, pools and lakes more often increases the chances of swimming-related injuries.

Common Summer Accidents and Injuries

Some of the most common types of accidents and injuries that can occur in summer are:

  • Serious injuries or death from auto accidents on freeways and surface streets
  • Swimmer’s shoulder (damage to the muscles of the shoulder socket and rotator cuff) from lots of time in the water
  • Injuries from boating accidents on rivers, lakes and other waterways
  • Broken bones while playing baseball or other summer sports
  • Sprains, bruises and bumps from falls on trampolines or playground equipment
