Keep Yourself Safe from Holiday Dangers in Maryland

By Alpert Schreyer on December 20, 2012

The holiday season in Maryland is a time for celebrations and making memories with family and friends. Unfortunately, serious accidents can often disrupt not only these festivities, but the lives of victims for possibly years to come. Holiday-related accidents happen every year in Maryland, but you don’t have to be a part of the statistics.

To keep yourself and those you care about safe this holiday season, watch out for the dangers that could cause serious injury accidents.

  • Slip-and-Fall Hazards: Cold Maryland winters can easily result in icy roads, sidewalks, and parking lots that can cause a pedestrian to unexpectedly suffer a slip and fall accident. But the dangers don’t end outside, as pedestrians can track in ice, snow, and rain indoors and create slippery hazards inside homes, stores, and workplaces.
  • Drunk Drivers: Holiday celebrations mean an increase in drinking, and unfortunately not everyone will choose to celebrate responsibly. Maryland police are out in force to prevent drunk driving, but they cannot catch everyone.
  • Dangerous Products: Shopping sprees, gifts, and old holiday decorations all mean that a family could be exposed to a dangerous product without knowing it. Often, children are the most at risk of suffering an injury due to a dangerous holiday item.
  • Fires: With the cold creeping in outside, most will try to stay warm through heaters, fireplaces, hot drinks, and cooking. But accidents can turn these sources of comforting warmth into dangerous fires in a matter of moments.

At Alpert Schreyer, our Bowie personal injury lawyers wish everyone a safe holiday season. However, if you or a loved one is injured in an accident caused by another party’s actions, contact our offices today to learn more about how we can help you in your case by calling (866) 444-6363.
