Holiday Season

While holiday season means that the kids are off school and you may be off of work, personal injuries of many kinds, unfortunately, don’t take a break and can occur whenever. Should you be involved in a motor vehicle accident and have sustained injuries from it, you may be eligible to seek a compensation payout. This is also applicable for any slip-and-fall accidents that may occur at public events or anywhere else.

Here at Seymour Furlong Lawyers, the initial consultation and initial assessment of your claim is free and is of no obligations. We act on a ‘no win-no fee’ basis whereby we are only paid when the claim is successful. Although our law-firm is situated in Forest Lake, we offer off-site-visits and outside-hour-visits for your convenience.

Tips for a safe holiday season with your family and friends:

  • If you are driving to a holiday event with the intention of consuming alcohol, be sure to have a Plan B so that you don’t endanger yourself and others! This may include planning a designated driver to go there and back, to use an alternative means to go home such as taxi, Uber or Ola, or to stay overnight.
  • Other tips car-related include ensuring you have an emergency first aid kit kept in your car, a full jerry can of fuel, extra water bottles and, most importantly, being cautious on the roads for any hazards.
  • For decorations around the home, make sure they are kid-friendly and not a tripping or burning hazard If you are driving to a holiday event with the intention of consuming alcohol, be sure to have a Plan B so that you don’t endanger yourself and others! This may include planning a designated driver to go there and back, to use an alternative means to go home such as taxi, Uber or Ola, or to stay overnight.
  • If you have chosen to do a holiday feast on the barbeque or be using very hot appliances, be sure to keep an eye on not only the food that you’re cooking but also everyone around the appliances. Burns can often become a serious injury but are also very preventable, so it is always best to take the utmost precaution to keep your friends and family safe while celebrating the holiday season.

Should you or a loved one become injured to any degree, we strongly suggest seeking medical attention to ensure it does not become any worse and is treated properly.

From the Seymour Furlong team to your families, we wish you all a Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas!
