In April of this year at the Safe and Sound event, Attorney Aaron Sachs and his firmed pulled together its resources and aided in the efforts to distribute free bicycle helmets to Springfield families. In an interview with KSPR 33 ABC, Attorney Sachs noted that numerous clients have come to the firm, with stories about how helmets have helped save lives and prevented their children from sustaining more serious injuries.
According to KSPR 33’s ABC’s report, about one bicycle rider is killed each day in Missouri. This staggering statistic undoubtedly prompted Attorney Sachs to take a proactive stance on the situation.
Prevention & Awareness at Safe and Sound Event
Safe and Sound Saturday was held on April 14, 2015, at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds. The event allowed vendors, business owners, and safety advocates the chance to share ideas and various safety and prevention methods. The Springfield community was united on that day devoted to promoting awareness and providing education and resources to families, in particular for those with young bicycle riders.
Bicycle accidents have been known to cause some very serious injuries, such as:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Fractures and broken bones
- Sprains, strains, and bruises
Research has supported the claims that wearing a helmet can reduce the impact of a collision, prevent a worse injury, and even save a life. As part of the firm’s dedication to keeping families protected, Aaron Sachs & Associates, P.C. handed out helmets to over 4, 000 children during the event. The family of the child who received the 30, 000th helmet also received a free vacation getaway to Branson.
