Spring is in bloom, and there’s no better time to get some fresh air. If you are looking for a way to get your family outside and away from their screens, why not plan a spring-themed scavenger hunt? More than just a fun way to spend the afternoon, scavenger hunts build problem-solving skills, encourage teamwork, and get your family to exercise their minds and bodies. Here are some tips on how to plan a memorable family scavenger hunt. Play in Teams Your whole family can participate together, but it can also be fun to strike up some friendly competition with teams. Have at least one parent or an older, responsible sibling on each team to make sure everyone stays safe and follows the rules. Take Pictures Since everyone has a camera on their phone, why not use it? By taking pictures, you don’t have to worry about losing anything you find, and your teams can more safely collect certain items. For example, bird feathers are a great item for a spring scavenger hunt, but you don’t want your kids to touch them. Make a rule that a team FAMILY SCAVENGER HUNTS Made Easy Searching for Spring Motorcycle accidents aren’t like most accidents. In a car, you’re tucked in tight with a seatbelt and safety measures backed by millions of dollars in research and development. When you ride a motorcycle, you’re exposed and vulnerable. This makes riding a motorcycle extremely dangerous, especially in the case of a collision. Based on a study done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, fatalities occur 27 times more frequently on motorcycles than with any other vehicle. When we had someone come to us fighting for the memory of their loved one involved in a motorcycle accident, we took the case. Our client passed away after being struck on his motorcycle by a vehicle on Route 9. The driver of the vehicle claimed that our client was driving erratically with no lights on his motorcycle. But the evidence suggested that the motorcycle malfunctioned and caused our client to pull off to the side of the road to fix his bike. The investigation revealed that the driver who struck our client had been drinking that night. After further digging, it was determined that alcohol played a significant role in the accident — there was very little slowing or braking before impact. This led to a consensus that delayed reaction time and possible impairment from alcohol consumption had a major effect on the accident. Case Highlight Series

member must appear in every picture so no one can cheat by finding photos online. Customize Your List There are plenty of scavenger hunt lists online, but it’s more fun to brainstorm with your family. Have everyone think of three to five spring-related items, like yellow flowers, a kite, or a rabbit-shaped cloud. Do some research into your local flora and fauna. If you put a bluebird on the list, you might want to make sure there are bluebirds in your area. Don’t Forget the Prizes! Prizes don’t have to be elaborate to be fun. It can be something simple, like Popsicles or fake medals, or maybe the winning team gets to pick a restaurant for dinner. Scavenger hunts are one of the best ways to create lasting family memories this spring without breaking the bank. Just get your list, gather your family, and have fun. Happy hunting!


After taking all this into consideration, our case became difficult for the other party to defend. Motorcyclists have the same rights to the road, though the way they’re treated does not always reflect that right. This empowered our case and eventually helped us earn a settlement out of court for nearly the full amount of the liability insurance policy. Serious injuries deserve serious experience, and motorcycle injuries are among the most serious injuries we see. If you’re the victim of an accident, we want to help. Contact us today, and let us show you how we’ve helped thousands of clients find the results they are entitled to.
