Thanksgiving is about giving thanks and spending time with those that you hold closest to your heart. It is not typically thought of as a particularly dangerous holiday, but being a personal injury lawyer sometimes leads me to contemplate how even the safest activities can result in injury.
Over the last decade I have seen and heard it all - from the most severe driving accidents to the phantom truck tire coming out of nowhere. Hearing about accidents and injuries everyday would make anyone cautious, but whether I am at work or at home with my family, I tend to be exceptionally cautious.
Here's a list of your favorite Durham personal injury lawyers' list of dangerous activities to avoid this Thanksgiving…
- Scalding your mouth on hot cider even after waiting for it to cool and not being able to taste the Thanksgiving meal.
- Causing an explosion because the turkey was not completely thawed even though every article online said it should be thawed after 5 days in the fridge.
- Burning your hands trying to get all the hot plates of food arranged on the table.
- Slicing off a finger while carving the turkey with an electric knife.
- Being poisoned by your mother-in-law's mac n' cheese or that strange casserole that your uncle threw together.
- Going into anaphylactic shock because someone put the pecan pie serving spoon in the apple pie.
- Getting trampled during Black Friday shopping.
While some scenarios on this list may have never crossed your mind, accidents happen all the time and I have seen people get injured in so many different ways. Hopefully you never have to experience the consequences of these potential mishaps, however I hope these serve as little reminders to help you stay safe so that you can enjoy an accident free holiday with your family.
