Holiday Shopping Safety

The holidays are here and many Florida residents are flocking to the malls and shopping centers in record numbers. Safety should always be a priority while shopping. In the rush to take advantage of this season’s sales, holiday shoppers should take extra precautions to keep themselves and those who are with them safe.

Safety concerns at resort hotels

You go on vacation to get away from the ordinary problems of day-to-day life. Florida resorts are advertised as the perfect getaway spot for travelers. Unfortunately, accidents and injuries happen in resorts, just like anywhere else. In fact, some aspects of hotels and resorts can make injuries more likely to happen, if staff and property owners neglect their responsibilities. Anyone injured in a Florida resort should speak to an attorney about obtaining full compensation for their injuries and expenses.

Holiday slip-and-fall hazards

The holiday season is here, bringing with it an increase in traffic and shoppers to establishments all over Florida. Holiday slip-and-falls are also at an all-time high, making personal safety a main concern. According to EHS Today, each year, 17,000 people die from slip-and-fall related accidents. This type of accident is the reason why one million people sustain injuries that often require emergency treatment. Anyone who plans to travel and visit different places throughout the season should take heed of the following hazardous conditions.

Suing for medical malpractice due to prescription drug errors

A common reason people sue for medical malpractice is due to prescription drug errors. This can be particularly frightening since we rely so heavily on a doctor's diagnosis and their treatment plan. Medications need to be thoughtfully prescribed, filled and administered; any harm to the patient resulting from a mistake in that process can become grounds for a lawsuit.

Apartment fires

The temperatures are dropping in Florida and apartment fires are a growing concern for renters. During the colder months of the year, tenants are more likely to engage in risky behaviors to warm their homes. These actions alone are not responsible for the number of injuries and deaths that occur from residential fires each year. However, they are a major contributor.

Mother and daughter found dead in Florida apartment complex pool

Many apartment buildings in Florida have swimming pools that are offered to residents. Apartment building owners are responsible for making sure their pools and the areas immediately surrounding them are safe from preventable dangers and hazards that could affect resident safety. These safety measures may include properly trained staff to provide adequate supervision, lifeguards to prevent accidental drowning and up-to-date code regulations and structures.

Dangers of pepper spray misuse

Pepper spray is legal to carry in all 50 states. However, some states have limitations on how strong the spray is, how much is in the container, how old someone has to be to buy it and many others. Despite it being a powerful tool to protect yourself, it can also be used against you by police or others, whether intentionally or accidentally.

Electric heater risks

As the weather starts to get colder in Florida, more people are using electric heaters to warm their homes. As convenient and economical as this solution may seem, many people are not aware of the risks that electric heaters pose to their safety.
