Injuries that Commonly Occur on Thanksgiving

Accidents in the Kitchen

Thanksgiving is always the one day of the year when cooking injuries skyrocket. These accidents occur most of the time while people attempt to make something they have never tried before. Of course, Thanksgiving isn't the only time that accidents happen, but it is the one time people get hurt most often.

The most common Thanksgiving injuries that are related to cooking include:

  • Fires when cooking the turkey

  • Injury from Electrocuting Appliances

  • Injury from Refrigerators

  • Damage from the Pressure Cooker

  • Cuts on the hand from knives

Car Accidents

Drivers are urged to use extra caution as this is the peak travel period for the year and as people are traveling to be with friends and family for Thanksgiving. Don't get behind the wheel if you're not 100 percent focused on the road. Be prepared for the extra people on the road, and anticipate heavier traffic. Make sure your car is ready and have a backup plan if you get involved in a crash.

Black Friday Shopping

Black Friday shopping has been around for decades, and it usually signifies the start of the Christmas season. However, the sales start getting earlier and earlier, and now Thanksgiving meals may be cut short as families decide to go out and shop instead. Many injuries can happen during the madness, both in the stores and in the parking lots.
