With Christmas approaching, there’s plenty to worry about – especially if you’re having family over for dinner, or to stay for a few days during the holiday period. How can you possibly get everything ready? Will everything go smoothly?
You hope that there will be no mishaps, but this can’t be guaranteed. There’s always the possibility of an accident happening – and if you do have one, you could be eligible to claim compensation through an accident lawyer in York.
How to avoid Christmas accidents
Although Christmas itself lasts only one day, there is a whole build-up, which can last several weeks or more, depending on when you begin shopping for gifts.
Here are a few things to think about during that period – and they might help you to avoid having to seek the advice of an accident lawyer in York:
1) Delivering cards to neighbours? Watch your step – you might slip. Pavements should be gritted when freezing weather is expected, but you can’t guarantee it.
2) Going shopping? That’s very likely. Be careful, though. Slips and falls can happen inside shopping centres as well as outside.
3) Buying gifts for children? Make sure they’re suitable for their age. Look at the age guidelines on the packaging – they are put on for a reason. Small parts are a choking hazard.
4) Cooking Christmas dinner? Defrost the turkey thoroughly before roasting it. Also, don’t rush in the kitchen – you could burn, scald or cut yourself.
5) Unwrapping gifts in the living room? Take a bin in there with you for the paper and plastic packaging, so as to avoid slip and trip hazards.
