Personal Injury Attorney, Jeffrey T. Jones, founder of the Law Offices of Jeffrey T. Jones, and best-selling author of “Protect and Defend” reminds parents, caregivers and pet owners to take extra care with children and pets to prevent heat related illnesses, injuries and deaths during the summer.
Charleston, WV, July 11, 2016: Personal Injury Attorney, Jeffrey T. Jones, founder of the Law Offices of Jeffrey T. Jones, and best-selling author of “Protect and Defend” has posted a new blog on his website entitled “Be Mindful of The Summer Heat to Prevent Illness, Injury or Death.” Getting through the summer without serious injuries is the motivation for Mr. Jones’s newest blog.
Jones writes, “Summer is all about fun in the sun. The long awaited days of swimming, barbecues, and fireworks are here.” He continues adding, “However, it’s important to remember that the summer heat can be very dangerous particularly for small children, pets and older adults. Every year there are unfortunate heat related illnesses, injuries and deaths that occur.”
Sharing a memorable fact, Jones states, “You may not be aware of this, but it takes just 10 minutes for the inside of a car to reach temperatures over 100 degrees on an 85-degree day. Imagine the damage that can be done to a child or a pet left alone in that kind of heat.” He elaborates, “Heat stroke, brain damage and death can occur quickly. Leaving a child alone in a car can lead to heat stroke and can kill quickly.”
Jones shares another fact, “According to reports from San Jose State University since 2014, more than 60 children have died from heat stroke after being left in cars in the United States.”
Jones shares a list of tips every parent, pet owner and caregiver should read. Jones encourages, “Parents and caregivers need to be on high alert during the summer months. Do everything possible to stay focused on children and pets when running errands, as distractions are responsible for many sad accidents. Never leave a child or pet in a car for any period of time. “
