Avoid Holiday Accidents Around Your Home

Categories: Liability

Over the holidays you’ll probably have several visitors to your home, and chances are you’ll probably be out and about a lot over the next couple of weeks. Be sure to watch your footing, because according to statistics, more falls occur in December and January than any other time of the year.

Now why would it be that more accidents occur in these winter months? Could it be the additional decorations and extension cords draped throughout the yard and house? Could it be the boxes overflowing with inventory in store aisles or wrapping left lying on the floor, covering up a tripping hazard? What about the toys spread everywhere on Christmas morning. Yes, these are all accidents just waitingto happen.

Be careful this holiday season. Watch your step, help your elders, and if you or someone you love is injured in a fall or accident, be sure to keep good records and contact your insurance company right away.
