Everything You Need to Know About a Slip and Fall Accident

Did you know that falls are the second leading cause of accidental injury deaths worldwide? That’s right – and while not every fall accident is fatal, you can still suffer serious injuries and will often be entitled to compensation. If you’ve suffered a fall and aren’t sure what to do next, this article is for you. Keep reading for everything you need to know about slip and fall accidents. You’ll Need to Fill out an Accident Report Immediately after your fall, you’ll probably be asked to fill out an accident report by the owner of the property where you fell. It’s important to fill this out correctly, noting down all important details. For example, if you fell because of wet flooring or a loose cable, you should be sure to include this in your report. Since an accident report is so crucial when it comes to seeking compensation, you should always report falls to the property owner or appropriate person as soon as they happen – or you won’t have a report to fill in. You Could Be Eligible for Compensation Slip and fall accidents can affect your life in a variety of ways, so the type of compensation you fight for will vary from case to case. For most injuries, you’ll be able to claim for medical bills, pain and suffering, and out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a result of your injury. If you had to take time off work because of your injury, you could also claim for lost wages. Be sure to speak with an experienced attorney to ensure you get everything you’re entitled to.

Theme Park Safety Tips

Theme parks are a great way to have fun as a family. There are rides that are suitable for everyone’s comfort level, delicious foods, and fun activities like parades and live shows. We’ve compiled a list of safety tips to keep in mind for your next theme park vacation to avoid any serious injuries and make for a memorable trip! 1. Wear Sunscreen When walking around all day in a huge theme park, it’s important to apply sunscreen 20 minutes before arriving, and reapply regularly. No one wants to deal with a stinging, itchy sunburn on their vacation. Set a timer on your phone to help you easily remember when it’s time to reapply.   2. Stay hydrated It’s important to keep yourself hydrated to avoid serious health issues that could wind up ruining your family vacation. Symptoms of dehydration can include dry mouth, dizziness, headaches, and confusion. To avoid these complications, have each member of your family or group carry a reusable water bottle and refill at water fountains often. You can even get a nifty one with a strap for hands-free fun!   3. Keep your health in mind If you have a known condition that could be agitated by intense rides, know your limits. If you’re prone to motion sickness or have high blood pressure, heart, back or neck pain, inner ear infections, or experience Claustrophobia, some theme park rides can present a health risk. Some roller coasters involve sudden turns or flips, fast speeds, and safety restraints that can agitate conditions. Roller coasters are also not recommended for women who are pregnant. If you have an...
