Staten Island, NY (PRWEB) October 15, 2009
With Halloween fast approaching, Decker, Decker, Dito & Internicola, LLP has decided to be proactive this Halloween in helping keep children safe while they are trick-or-treating. Halloween is a great time for children to dress up and have fun but there are many dangers lurking while children are trick-or-treating.
Frank J. Dito Jr., an injury lawyer and partner at Decker, Decker, Dito & Internicola, LLP, and father of two young children, became very concerned about the safety of children in Staten Island and throughout New York City this Halloween. As a personal injury attorney, Mr. Dito has seen first-hand what can happen to a family when easily preventable accidents happen. Research has shown that children in New York are at too high of a risk for being injured on Halloween - from a child being hit by a car because their costume is too dark to be seen by drivers to a candle flame from a jack-o-lantern being too close to a child's costume. There are many accidents that occur on Halloween that are more likely to injure children than at any other time during months of October or November.
Decker, Decker, Dito & Internicola, LLP is making it a priority to educate the Staten Island community this year to keep children safe on Halloween. As part of the T.O.T. (Trick or Treat) Safety Campaign, Decker, Decker, Dito & Internicola, LLP is giving out free reflective trick or treat bags and safety glow sticks to help the children stay visible and safe on Halloween night. To educate parents and the local community, Decker, Decker, Dito & Internicola, LLP is offering a Stay Safe Halloween Report featuring tips to help parents keep their children safe, free of charge. To help get the children more interested and more involved in wanting to be safe this Halloween, the law firm is also running a contest for the Best Halloween Costume that will be available to all children who use the reflective trick or treat bags and the safety glow sticks on Halloween night. The top three costumes will be given prizes and their pictures will be featured in the Decker, Decker, Dito & Internicola, LLP December newsletter.
Parents interested in the T.O.T. Safety campaign are encouraged to go online to http://www.dddilaw.com/reports/halloween.cfm to learn more about how they can help their children stay safe trick or treating this Halloween.
