Insurance Baton Rouge

Summer vacation is here and the kids are free for a few months. That also means pool parties, fireworks, family vacations, and accidents. Medical experts remind us that during June, July, and August, there is a dramatic increase in children’s injuries. Many of these injuries may be covered by your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance. However, a little bit of prevention will go a long way to making sure your child has a safe and fun summer.

If you are planning a vacation, be sure your child has proper ID.  Many states now require every child to have some form of identification.

 Water Safety

More than one in five drowning victims are children 14-years-old and younger, and most of these incidents happen when a child falls into a pool or is left alone in the bathtub.

·         Make sure your child stays away from suction drains in pools.

·         Wearing a life vest is always a good idea when on a river or lake.

·         Make sure pools are always under the supervision of an adult.

·         Home swimming pools should be fully enclosed and securely gated.

Heat and Sun

·         Keep children well hydrated.

·         Wear light weight clothes.

·         Hats are good for younger children.

·         Be sure to have sun screen on children at all times.

·         Check to make sure that the surfaces under playground equipment are safe, soft, and well-maintained.

 

Bug Bites

·         Avoid areas where insects nest or congregate, such as stagnant pools of water, uncovered foods, and gardens where flowers are in bloom.

·         Use insect repellents containing DEET.

Bike Safety

·         A helmet protects your child from serious injury, and should always be worn.
