Have a Fun, Safe Independence Day!June 30, 2015
Lowe Scott Fisher Co., LPA would like to wish everyone a happy Fourth of July. With the coming weekend likely to be filled with fireworks, swimming, grilling, and perhaps alcohol, we urge everyone to practice safety and restraint when enjoying these potentially dangerous activities.
Firework Injuries and Accidents
Firework injuries are common around this time of year, and can range from minor burns to significant personal injuries and death. In addition to direct injuries, fireworks are responsible for dangerous fires to homes, buildings, and vehicles. Check out the National Fire Protection Association’s website for more info on the dangers of fireworks and some safety tips to protect yourself and your family.
Grill Fire Injuries
July is the peak month for grill fires, according to the NFPA, and this means Independence Day is a time to take extra care around the grill. With approximately 8,800 home fires caused each year by grill-related incidents, owners and users may want to consult the NFPA’s grilling safety tips to property damage or serious injuries.
Swimming Pool Injuries
We recently discussed some harrowing statistics related to child drownings in this country. During an outdoor holiday weekend, the risks of drownings or other swimming pool injuries are quite high, especially when little ones are involved. Parents and non-parents alike should refer to Safe Kids Worldwide’s tips for safety in and around the swimming pool.
Alcohol-Related Injuries and Drunk Driving Injuries
Do. Not. Drink. And. Drive. End of story.
Injuries Can Happen Even When You Play It Safe. When They Do, You Need an Experienced Ohio Injury Attorney.
All of your safety precautions may mean nothing if you are injured as the result of someone else’s negligence. But you do not have to face your injuries alone. If you or a loved one are injured and you believe you deserve compensation, call the Ohio injury law firm of Lowe Scott Fisher Co., LPA to discuss your case.Back To Blog
