Safety Tips for National Safety Month

weiser-summer-driving-tipsThe New York accident attorneys at Weiser & Associates are joining with the National Safety Council to recognize National Safety Month this June. National Safety Month brings focus to reducing the causes of injury and death at home, at work, on the roads, and in our communities.

Because we face the risk of accidents in all aspects of our lives, staying educated and aware is critical. While not all accidents are avoidable, there is much we can do to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe this June, and all year long. Consider these safety tips when you are:

  • At Home – Product liability can strike when we feel most secure—in our own homes. Always use products as intended to avoid injuries, and read all warnings.
  • At Work – Construction site accidents are one common cause for workplace injuries, but there are risks with any job. Know your profession’s regulations and risks.
  • In the Community – Slip and fall accidents and cases of negligent security are two of the myriad risks we all face when we are in public spaces. Staying alert to your surroundings is imperative when so many factors can lead to injury.
  • On the Roads – Motor vehicle accidents are one of the most apparent risks we all face nearly every day. While we can’t be responsible for the actions of other motorists, we can take all necessary precautions for weather conditions and follow all safety regulations to reduce traffic accidents.

If you have been injured in any type of accident, you need to know your rights. Contact Weiser & Associates at 212-213-3111 to schedule a consultation with our experienced New York accident attorney today.
