With summer just around the corner, people are gearing up for the beautiful weather and excitedly planning their vacations. California is one of the most popular states for residents and tourists both to flock to the beaches and take advantage of summer break in all the many forms that are offered here. While there are many incredible things to do during this refreshing season, it’s important to remember that there are also a lot of potential dangers that go hand-in-hand with the fun, especially for children.
Accidents happen, for sure. But as personal injury attorneys, we at Hershey Law see more than our fair share of tragedies that could have been avoided if someone involved had been more alert to the danger or aware of safety tips that would have made an impact.
Before you head out for your fun activities this summer, take a few minutes to review these basic safety reminders, taken from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and the American Red Cross. You never know when a little bit of prevention and knowledge might save a life.
Whether you are a seasoned swimmer, or you are in charge of young children in your care, you need to take safety precautions to keep yourself and others protected. These rules are not just for water, though.
The California heat can be dangerous all by itself. It’s easy to become dehydrated during a distracted day of play or end up with heat stroke from being outside too long. Second and third-degree burns are also a common danger.
Avoid making basic, harmful mistakes by remembering the following ten safety tips:
These 10 safety precautions can save the life of you or someone you love. They can also mean the difference between moving on with your life and being charged with neglect. While these are basic safety guidelines, they are also things that are expected with a reasonable duty of care.
Too often, personal injuries arise due to someone’s neglect of a duty of care they were expected to provide. If your summer was cruelly interrupted because of the negligence of another person that caused you or a loved one a personal injury, we at Hershey Law are here to help you.
Let us do the hard work so you can focus on recovering and moving forward with this new season of your life. Contact the professionals at Hershey Law for your free consultation.
