Domestic Violence - Seasonal Trends

The summer has finally arrived, and with it all the activities, trips, and experiences we look forward to. It is a time of outdoor activities and fun-filled pastimes. Research has found, however, that along with all these enjoyable times comes another sad reality: domestic violence. Despite what anyone may have thought or assumed, a government study conducted by examining hospital records has shown that the likelihood of domestic violence - as well as several other forms of assault -  increases during the summer months and remains higher than its typical level throughout the year. In fact, somewhat surprisingly, it falls to its lowest annual rates during the winter months and around holidays. This trend has also been observed by the National Domestic Violence Hotline, which reported similar trends in its recorded reports.

If you or anyone you know is being charged with domestic violence, assault, or any other crime, the potential for life-changing consequences is high. Call the Law Office of Brian Prain today to ensure the best possible outcome in your case.
