Tailgating Safety

by NPHM | November 4th, 2019

Although the weather outside has been getting colder for weeks, football season is just heating up. Both the college and professional leagues are heading towards playoffs, and that means there’s no better time to tailgate than right now. If you decide to tailgate this fall and winter, it’s important to be aware of the potential dangers that tailgating can pose to you, your loved ones, and your fellow fans.

At Nurenberg Paris, our legal team is dedicated to helping injured victims get maximum compensation for their accident-related expenses, but we know that even the biggest settlement can’t take away the pain and suffering victims endure after a serious injury. That’s why we believe it’s best to prevent injuries from happening in the first place whenever possible.

And while tailgating isn’t an activity that many people associate with danger, it can quickly cause a fun-filled afternoon to become tragic if proper precautions aren’t followed. To reduce your chances of causing or being involved in a tailgate accident, be sure to follow the following tips in our Tailgate Safety infographic.

Tailgate Accident Victims Deserve Compensation

The dangers associated with tailgates may be more plentiful—and more serious—than you might have previously considered, especially when they may be caused by other tailgaters. Although tailgate-related accidents are rare, the injuries associated with them can cause victims to need expensive medical treatments and long periods away from work. And when victims are not working, they’re not earning the paychecks they and their loved ones rely on for everyday living expenses.

However, getting compensation for a tailgate-related injury isn’t always easy. Multiple parties may be to blame, and it can be difficult to pin down exactly whose negligence caused the accident. It all adds up to a situation where insurance companies often ignore victims or refuse to pay, leaving them on their own to pay for their accident-related expenses.

We’re Here to Help After Tailgate Injuries

Pedestrian accidents, drunk driving crashes, and even grill fires and explosions can all happen at tailgates, and they can result in serious injuries. If you or someone you love was hurt at a tailgate because of someone else’s negligence, it’s important to get an experienced legal team on your side right away.

Building a strong personal injury claim requires evidence—and evidence can quickly disappear after tailgate accidents. In addition, witnesses may be more difficult to track down, and the insurance company may even believe that your injuries are pre-existing or not serious if you wait too long to get help.

Don’t risk the money you deserve for what you’ve been through. Get in touch with our legal team today. Our track record of success helping injured victims get full compensation spans decades, and we’re ready to put our experience to work for you and your loved ones.
