Unique #Atlanta festivals give us a new way to spend a sunny Georgia day, but large crowds do create greater risks in multiple ways. Although we do encourage being involved in the community, we want everyone to practice safety precautions if you do attend these types of events.
For starters, we suggest exercising extra caution as you drive or walk to and from an event. Traffic will be heavier surrounding these venues and more pedestrians will be out. For tips on preventing pedestrian accidents, read here. If you're involved in an accident, it is wise to contact an Atlanta accident attorney to discuss your potential case.
Additionally, being outside in the heat for long periods of time can be a hazard to your health. To avoid heat exhaustion, read here.
Lastly, other injuries at these events can and do occur if you aren't careful. Many times, dogs are allowed within these crowds which creates the risk of dog bites. If you experience a dog bite or endure another injury while attending an Atlanta festival, it is extremely vital that you contact an injury attorney to discuss your potential case.
