The Christmas and New Years’ holidays are the most anticipated days of the year. These are the days when family and friends come together to celebrate their achievements and everything lived during the year. These last days are filled with enthusiasm, kindness, and generosity. But, unfortunately, during these days, accidents and personal injuries tend to increase nationwide.
Some of the most common accidents are:
- Car accidents due to negligence and carelessness of drivers: The number of drivers drunk or under the influence of drugs is increasing. There is also an increase in traffic and, therefore, the lack of patience of drivers who often make dangerous maneuvers to avoid traffic. Another common factor is people driving at high speed.
- Low temperatures and snowfall.
- Overcrowded places: Avoid crowded places to protect yourself from COVID-19. Additionally, these places represent dangers such as: suffering from an object that falls on you or tripping over another person.
- Falls or slips during the setting of the Christmas decoration.
- Electric Shock: Don’t overload outlets and unplug Christmas decorations when you leave home. Taking preventative measures can save you from thermal burns, muscle and nerve damage, and in rare cases, cardiac arrest.
- Back injuries
- Long trips and heavy luggage: Vacation trips can affect your back. Picking up heavy luggage at the airport, moving furniture to decorate, carrying your family’s gifts from home to your car can lead to bank injuries, stress, or worse.
We wish you a lot of happiness during these holidays. But above all, we invite you to take preventive measures before the dangers that these holidays may present.
