Four Ways to Stay Safe This Memorial Day Weekend

By Williams & Brown LLP on May 19, 2014

Memorial Day is just around the corner, and families throughout Texas will be enjoying the warm weather with fun and friends.  Help the people you care about enjoy their Memorial Day safely with these four tips from experienced Texas personal injury attorneys:

  1. Drive safe.
  2. Make sure everyone wears a seat belt on every trip.  Summer is also a good time to check children’s car seats to ensure they fit the child’s height and weight and that they are installed correctly.  Keep your cell phone available only for emergencies or when the vehicle is parked in a safe place.

  3. Grill safe.
  4. Set up outdoor grills at a safe distance from buildings, walkways, and flammable items, like awnings or plants.  Teach children never to play around the grill and keep a fire extinguisher near the grill at all times.

  5. Boat and swim safe.
  6. If you go boating this Memorial Day, wear a properly-fitting life vest, and ensure children have properly-fitting life vests, as well.  Make sure boat drivers have the proper license.  Never combine alcohol with boating or swimming.  Never swim alone, and supervise children closely at all times on the water.

  7. Sun safe.
  8. Use sunscreen, hats, and protective clothing to prevent sunburn.  Drink plenty of water, and make sure everyone has a shady spot to rest in, especially during the hottest parts of the day.  Remember, it can take time for the body to get used to the summer heat, so take plenty of breaks and head into an air-conditioned building if the weather becomes too hot.
