Stay Safe this Holiday Season
As the holidays kick off with Thanksgiving, we could all use some cheer and time with family to end 2020. While this holiday season might look different than those in the past, most families are trying to make the best of it. Unfortunately, for too many households, an accident and injuries disrupt their holidays, possibly causing additional stress and struggles well into the future.
There are steps you can take to keep your family safe during the 2020 holidays while still enjoying yourselves.
Watch for Drunk Drivers
The holidays and festive drinks go hand-in-hand for many people, and too many people get behind the wheel of a car after having too much to drink. If you are hit by a drunk driver, you can sustain serious injuries and incur extensive losses. Stay off the roads on holidays as much as possible, never drive after drinking, and watch for drivers who seem to be behaving erratically.
Research Gift Purchases
Many families remember a few years ago when the gift of choice for kids was the hoverboard. Not only did people of all ages fall and injure themselves, but the hoverboards began catching on fire when they were charging. It is important to do some research on any gifts you are ordering, as they might have risks or defects.
Be Aware of Risks at Home
Some people fry turkeys for Thanksgiving, which can result in burns. Holiday lights can result in electrical accidents and falls from ladders. If you set off fireworks on New Year’s Eve, they can cause fires and burns. Even a popping champagne cork can hit someone and cause injuries.
