Accidents and injuries can happen any time of the year – but especially on Black Friday. Often on Black Friday, the deals offered by stores mean larger crowds. This means more cars on the roads, more people possibly not paying as much attention to the road and their surroundings as they normally would, and more people trying to rush to their next location. This could lead to an accident that causes an injury.
While the same legal rules apply on Black Friday as any other day, in an effort to have plenty of stock, stores often will display and stack items differently than they do in their regular course of business. This can lead to issues with items falling on shoppers, or slip and fall accidents caused by forcing people to walk through or near areas they normally would not. You can reduce your likelihood of an injury on Black Friday by following these tips:
Avoid areas with frenzied crowds; no deal or discount is worth your personal safety;
Do not drive or shop after drinking;
Follow all traffic rules; ensure all vehicle occupants are buckled in safely;
Do not obstruct your driving view by piling up gifts in your car;
Never escalate a situation involving accidental physical contact;
Render aid to any injured person, and call for emergency services if needed.
