Holiday Safety Pitfalls

Holidays are supposed to be about care-free family fun and celebration. Many people look forward to their favorite holidays all year long. Americans plan festive parties, laboriously decorate their homes, and cook scrumptious meals for the love of these holidays. But along with the cheer and festivities that come along with the major American holidays, comes a heightened degree of danger and possibility for injury or death.

Keeping Yourself and Others Safe during the Holidays

There are a number of things you can do to keep yourself, your family and your friends safer during holidays. Be vigilant about safety and be very aware of the following threats that come with certain holidays:

  • New Year’s Eve – Avoid driving during this night of increased traffic accidents. Many fatal car crashes happen during this night alone because of the number of drunk drivers on the road.
  • Fourth of July – This holiday is known for fireworks. Opt to watch a professional fireworks display instead of lighting ones yourself. Professional displays have to abide by a number of safety rules, and water is always nearby. Not to mention, the fireworks are far more impressive.
  • Halloween – Although trick-o-treating with your children seems like a fun, innocuous pastime, you need to keep safety in mind. The risk of traffic accidents, trip and fall injuries, and other incidents are greatly increased when children are walking around the neighborhood after dark.

Unfortunately, taking safety precautions is not always enough to prevent serious injuries. If you have been harmed by another party’s negligence, our Sheboygan personal injury attorneys can help you protect your legal rights.
