This Memorial Day, avoid common holiday hazards

Whether you have a road trip planned or intend to stay close to home, chances are you are looking forward to relaxing and enjoying the long Memorial Day weekend ahead.

Many people consider this holiday to be the unofficial kickoff to summer, but Memorial Day can also serve as a good time to remind people of some seasonal hazards that have the potential to cause serious injury.

Car accidents

The 100 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day have been dubbed the 100 deadliest days on the road, especially for teens. During this period, there are more drivers on the road, which increases the likelihood that distracted or inexperienced drivers will cause an accident.

Further, holidays like Memorial Day often see a spike in drunk drivers, which means there is an increased risk of getting hurt in a drunk driving accident. Being especially cautious on the roads and avoiding driving late at night and on the weekends when possible can help you stay safe.

Water-related incidents

Texans often flock to beach houses, cabins, swimming pools or the lake during holidays and hot summer months. Accidents involving boating crashes, drowning or injuries at a swimming pool are therefore very real risks of which you should be aware. Use caution near water and make sure children are supervised.

Weather-related injuries

Storm season and extreme weather pose serious threats to Texans. While we cannot control the weather, we can do things like securing our homes and property. Additionally. if you work outside, make sure you have protection from the sun, access to shelter and water to stay hydrated.

When accidents happen, legal guidance can be crucial

If you cannot avoid accidents in the coming weeks, understand that you have legal options to pursue compensation from a negligent or reckless party responsible for any injuries you suffer. Money cannot undo an accident, but it can cover your medical expenses and other financial damages so that you can focus on your recovery.
