Be Safe this St. Patrick's Day Weekend
St. Patrick’s Day is March 17th, which happens to fall on a Thursday this year. Due to this, many St. Patrick’s Day celebrations will occur over the upcoming weekend. Family-friendly events like parades will cross paths with more adult-oriented parties, producing a scenario in which serious injury may be more likely. To help protect yourself and those you love, the New Hampshire personal injury attorneys at Van Dorn & Curtiss encourage you to play it safe this St. Patrick’s Day Weekend.
How can you help protect yourself and others from injury this weekend? By not drinking and driving for starters. Drunk driving is one of the leading causes of car accidents – many of which are fatal. Be vigilant this weekend, both in not drinking and driving and in avoiding distraction while behind the wheel, to help guard your safety and protect your family.
Car accidents are not the only things associated with alcohol consumption on St. Patrick’s Day weekend. Fights, falls, and other injurious events are also more likely during this time. It is important to remember that limiting your alcohol consumption and sticking to environments you know are safe can reduce your risks for injury and help ensure your festivities remain happy. However, even the most thoughtful and careful among us cannot always avoid being injured by the recklessness of others.
