’Tis the Season for Holiday-Related Injuries

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us at Fountain Hills Law Firm! As the final days of the year descend upon us, we are all excited to celebrate the holiday season alongside family and friends, but we must also be mindful of staying safe.

It is common to see spikes in emergency room visits and fire department calls around this time. At home, potential hazards can involve anything from falling off ladders and chairs while decorating, to electric shocks from stringing Christmas lights, to fires from cooking, lighting candles, and dry Christmas trees.

Here in Arizona, due to weather changes, more holiday traffic, inattentive drivers, and impaired driving, we see increases in car accidents and injuries involving drivers, passengers, and pedestrians during the holiday season. Nobody wants to compromise their good time with family and friends due to an avoidable accident. Once again, a reminder to put safety first and to take extra care in ensuring that the holidays are a time for fun, not injury. If you have been drinking, have someone else drive, take a cab, or call Uber so that your holidays are not ruined by a DUI.
