As the leaves fall and the nights draw in ever earlier, we are also constantly reminded, more or less, that Christmas is on its way.
Every time you go shopping, you see decorations in the stores, and shelves – even whole aisles – full of festive fare and things to buy as gifts. Go to your local pub, and you will hear Christmas songs and see adverts imploring people to have their office Christmas party there.
Meanwhile, you might be dealing with the preparations for your own festivities, which are just around the corner. You may have prepared for every eventuality – but have you considered what you might do in the event of an accident?
Every year, Accident Advice Helpline receives calls from people who need an accident claims lawyer in Torridge because of a Christmas-related accident in which they have been injured.
How the accidents happen
Wherever there’s excitement mixed with emotions and alcohol, there’s the risk of an accident. At Christmas, we’re all encouraged to let our hair down, and when this happens, we might forget about our safety, which could cause us to have an accident.
We also get into accidents at Christmas because we rush. We might rush to get the Christmas dinner ready “on time”, even though no one may be bothered about eating straight away. This might cause a spillage of hot fat or boiling water, which you slip on. The next thing that happens is that someone has to dial 999.
Be careful at Christmas
While you’re with friends and family this Christmas, enjoy yourself – and take care to avoid being injured in an accident that might have been prevented.
Of course, you might be the victim of an accident that definitely isn’t your fault. In that case, an accident lawyer in Torridge could help you.
If, for example, you plug in an electrical gift and it shocks you because it’s defective, you could make a claim – but make sure you get checked out by a doctor first. When you’re comfortable again, why not pick up the phone and call Accident Advice Helpline?
