Most Common Injuries Over Christmas and the Holidays
Getting injured is bad enough but when injuries occur at Christmas or during the holidays it can be especially difficult for families and individuals to recover from the effects. It is important at any time of year to take proper safety precautions to protect yourself and your loved ones. These are the top injuries that commonly occur over the holiday season and how you can take proper precautions to prevent injuries.
Slip and Fall Injuries
Busy shoppers should slow down and be cautious of wet or icy conditions. Slip and fall accidents are often reported during the holidays in stores and parking lots due to slippery conditions.
Falls From a Ladder
Hanging Christmas lights can result in serious fall injuries including broken bones and head trauma. Always use good quality equipment in well-maintained condition and be extra cautious when climbing.
Many people enjoy candles and pretty Christmas lights. But unattended candles and overloaded electrical circuits can start fires, so be extra cautious using them during the holiday season.
Overloaded electrical circuits can occur because of Christmas decorations or when you use space heaters in your home. If you experience unusual electrical activity in your home, call a professional. Electricity is nothing to play with, it can kill.
Lower Back Injuries
All the strain of lifting and loading the perfect tree, straining to place the perfect decorations, and heavy gift lifting lead to an increased number of lower back injuries during the holidays.
Distracted drivers are often the culprit in auto accidents, but there are many other contributing factors which cause crashes this time of year. There is an increased number of parking lot accidents during the holidays and there is more traffic congestion as holiday shoppers head out.
Injuries Due To Negligence
If your injuries are the result of someone else’s negligence, contact Casas Law today to discuss your specific situation and the options available.
