While enjoying the summers at Delray Beach, it’s important to remember key prevention tips that will keep everyone safe and have a memorable trip! Zappitell Law Firm has you covered as a personal injury attorney to help keep you safe and covered.
Why Do You Need A Personal Injury Attorney?
Not all injuries may require an attorney, but it’s important to have one in the serious situation of an emergency. With the right attorney, you will have the required skills and knowledge of someone who knows the legal system. Without one, the off chance of having lifetime pain bills, or any kind of suffering, isn’t a consequence for anyone. Even if it is unsure who is at fault or if there were multiple parties involved, sometimes it can be tricky to know if you can handle the claim. Any other person involved, their insurance will most likely blame you for any kind of damage. We will fight any unfair game as your attorney, and will defend your rights, cross-claims, and any counterclaims.
Drowning Prevention Tips
It’s easy to ask, why is drowning so common in the first place? The well known fact is that the inability to swim is the most common cause, among other factors. While children may be the highest risk, all age groups are at risk, and swimming lessons aren’t enough to prevent drowning. Even the most experienced drown. Safety measures are in place to help avoid these dangerous factors.
- Know CPR and first aid procedures.
- Have rescue equipment on hand, such as a life preserver or life jacket.
- Always bring your phone to a water activity, such as a pool, beach, or lake in case of an emergency.
- When swimming with children or those around water, it is suggested to use “touch supervision,” which means to remain at least in arm’s length of your child.
