The holidays have a lot to offer, but unfortunately, one of these things is increased injury risks. As we continue to battle the global pandemic that has had us in its grasp for nearly a year now, we’re sure to face new challenges this holiday season, and an increased risk of injuries is likely to be one. If you’re injured as a result of someone else’s negligence this holiday season, consult with an experienced Joliet personal injury attorney.
Winter weather increases the risk of dangerous slip and fall accidents on poorly maintained commercial properties. When businesses like grocery stores, medical facilities, and other enterprises fail to maintain their properties in reasonably safe condition, their customers, patients, and other guests are at increased risk of being injured in slip and fall accidents.
Additionally, cold temperatures, high winds, and ice and snow can lead to life-threatening traffic accidents. Motorists are responsible for driving safely in relation to the condition of the road, and this includes reducing one’s speed when weather causes any of the following:
Failing to accommodate for the condition of the road is a form of driver negligence that can be seriously exacerbated by other forms of driver negligence, including:
The traditional festivities of the holidays are closely associated with an increase in drunk driving. Alcohol leads to serious physical and mental impairments that make people especially dangerous behind the wheel. The stress associated with the rising risk of the pandemic and the fatiguing effects of social distancing could help make drunk driving even more prevalent this holiday season.
Many of us are looking for solace in our holiday decorating this year, but it’s important to recognize that ambitious decorating goals can lead to serious injuries. If you’re reaching for great heights with your decorations this year, always make safety your top priority by using a safely maintained ladder safely. Further, along with those decorations and lights come electrical cords that can turn into tripping hazards. This can also be a concern when you take a stroll to enjoy other people’s decorating efforts.
