What You Can Do to Prevent Falls
Obviously, we want you to be safe and your community safe to walk.
In that regard, Shaw Law Offices believe we serve a vital function in our communities to make them safer. Jury trials make your community safer by requiring businesses, fast food restaurants, convenience stores, big box stores, apartment complexes and other landowners who are not making the safest choices available to keep patrons and others safe while visiting their property.
But there are things you can do individually, too.
Falls can be prevented. These are some simple things you can do to keep yourself from falling.
Make Your Home Safer
- Get rid of things you could trip over.
- Add grab bars inside and outside your tub or shower and next to the toilet.
- Put railings on both sides of stairs.
- Make sure your home has lots of light by adding more or brighter light bulbs.
Of course, it always helps to walk slowly in places where there are adequate light.
Take small, shuffling steps on snowy and icy areas, if they cannot be avoided at all.
We Get You Back on Your Feet.
