Safety Begins at Home: Tips Provided by Hunt Valley Personal Injury Lawyers

Tips for safe living in Maryland

The National Safety Council (NSC) estimates over 90,000 people died in home and community-related unintentional accidents in 2009.  Home is where the heart is—but sometimes, it is also a real source of physical danger.

My firm has handled personal injury matters in Maryland for over 30 years, securing needed compensation for those suffering loss due to the negligence of others.  We work daily with consequences of poor construction, improper maintenance, and a host of other accident causes.

The best accident is one that never happens.  With almost every accident, a little more thought, caution, or care could have made the difference between a safe day and one that ended at a hospital.  Consider these tips for home safety:

  • Replace loose, worn rugs or carpet, and use only rugs with rubber backing
  • Use non-skid mats or strips and grab-bars in bath and shower
  • Install handrails on indoor and outdoor staircases
  • Keep floors, halls, stairwells, and entryways free of clutter
  • Childproof cabinets, electrical outlets, and stairwells
  • Use adequate lighting throughout your living area
  • Maintain smoke detectors on each level of your house
  • Keep firearms unloaded and locked up, with ammunition in a separate location

We spend a lot of time at home.  Take a little time and look around your house, your neighborhood, and your workplace.  If something looks unsafe, it probably is.  Fix it, change it, rearrange it—a little extra care now can save a lot of heartache later.
