Summer is underway and that means more time spent outside taking advantage of the warm and sunny weather. Pool parties, BBQs, days spent at the beach, camping, vacations, and fireworks are all popular activities to enjoy when the weather heats up.
While you may eager to enjoy all that summer has to offer, keep in mind that summer also brings several health hazards. For example, while fireworks are a staple of the Fourth of July and other summer celebrations, in 2017, more than 12,000 people suffered firework injuries that required medical treatment. Also, while you may like to cook on the grill, be sure to follow safe grilling practices. Between 2013 and 2017, fire departments responded to 10,200 home fires involving grills, hibachis or barbeques.
These are just a few of the many summertime activities that can leave you injured or ill and unable to spend time doing the things you enjoy. To ensure you get the most out of summer and spend time out in the sun and not in the emergency room, the Philadelphia personal injury lawyers at McCann Dillon Jaffe & Lamb, LLC list summer safety and injury prevention tips in this infographic.
