Safety Resolutions for the New Year

Posted in Car Accidents, Personal Injury on Tuesday, December 31st, 2019

The New Year brings a chance to reevaluate and reset many areas of our life. From our driving habits and our homes to our workplaces and our children, now is the time to make some resolutions for the New Year that are related to safety. You never know what types of accidents and injuries you could avoid by doing so.

Unfortunately, your own renewed commitment to safety cannot keep you 100 percent safe. If you are injured at any point during the coming year, an experienced Will County personal injury lawyer is waiting to hear about your case. They may be able to file a lawsuit to seek justice and compensation on your behalf.

Safety Resolutions for the Workplace

For some people, the workplace is one of, if not the most dangerous, places they frequent. Whether you work with hazardous machinery or chemicals or are subjected to repetitive work injuries, it is vital to your health to be mindful of workplace safety. To help increase safety in your workplace, consider the following safety resolutions:

  • Review safety policies and procedures
  • Always follow policies and procedures
  • Be a leader and set an example for others in the workplace
  • Know who to call if there is an emergency
  • Inspect personal safety gear and equipment
  • Ask questions and make suggestions

While it is impossible to prevent all workplace accidents with your own actions, you can decrease their incidents. If you have the unfortunate experience of being injured in a workplace accident during the coming year, be sure to schedule a consultation with a well-versed personal injury lawyer in Will County. Your attorney can help hold those accountable for your injuries liable for your damages.

Safety Resolutions on the Road

The road is also a potentially dangerous place to be, no matter the time of year. By making some New Years’ resolutions for driving, you could help yourself and other motorists stay safe. Consider the following list of possible resolutions any driver can make:

  • Buckle up
  • Signal
  • Drive defensively
  • Don’t tailgate
  • Drive the speed limit
  • Stop at red lights
  • Properly maintain your vehicle
  • Never drink and drive
  • Don’t use your cell phone or text while driving
  • Model positive behaviors for your children and passengers

If, despite your best efforts at safety, you are involved in an accident in the coming year, do not hesitate to reach out to a skilled Will County personal injury attorney who can assist you in getting the compensation you deserve.
