The Most Common Spring Safety Hazards | What You Need to Know

Spring is a season of renewal and joy, but also of potential dangers and risks. As the weather warms up and the flowers bloom, you may be eager to enjoy outdoor activities, home improvement projects, or spring cleaning. However, you should also be aware of the common spring safety hazards that can cause injuries or accidents. Please continue reading and reach out to a dedicated NYC personal injury lawyer from The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny to learn more about some of the most common spring safety hazards and how we can help if you’ve been harmed in an accident of any kind due to no fault of your own.

The Three Most Common Spring Safety Hazards

  • Bicycles: Bicycling is a great way to exercise and enjoy nature, but it also comes with risks. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were 846 bicyclist fatalities in 2019, accounting for 2.3% of all traffic deaths. Most of these crashes involved motor vehicles. To prevent bicycle accidents, you should always wear a helmet and protective gear, follow traffic rules and signals, use lights and reflectors at night, and ride defensively and attentively.
  • Ladders: Ladders are useful tools for home improvement or maintenance projects, such as painting, roofing, or cleaning gutters. However, they can also be dangerous if used improperly or carelessly. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), there were more than 164,000 ladder-related injuries treated in emergency departments in 2019. To prevent ladder injuries, you should always use a sturdy and stable ladder that is appropriate for the task and height, inspect the ladder before use, place it on a level and firm surface, secure it properly, maintain three points of contact at all times, and avoid overreaching or carrying heavy objects.
  • Pools: Pools are a source of fun and relaxation for many people, especially children. However, they can also be a source of tragedy if proper safety measures are not followed. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), drowning is the leading cause of unintentional injury death among children aged 1 to 4 years. To prevent pool accidents, you should always supervise children around water, install fences and alarms around pools, teach children how to swim and float, learn CPR and first aid skills, and avoid alcohol or drugs while swimming. In many cases, pool accidents and injuries occur as a result of pool owner negligence, and if you or a loved one has been hurt due to no fault of your own in such an accident, our firm is here to help you fight for the justice you deserve.

These are just some of the spring safety hazards that can cause injuries or accidents. If you or a loved one has been harmed by any of these hazards due to someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Contact The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny today to schedule your free case evaluation with our dedicated New York City personal injury law firm.
