Simple Tips to Stay Safe During Autumn Activities
To help you this fall season while the weather is cooling, people are heading outside to enjoy many fall activities. Here at Karp Steiger we would like to offer some tips to help you and your family stay safe whether you are headed out to do some biking, hiking, yard work, or just preparing for the winter season that we here in Northeast Ohio inevitably deal with every year. Whether in Cleveland, Medina, Findlay, or Youngstown, Karp Steiger here to offer these simple tips:
If you are headed out to do some biking, stay warm with rain gear. Be careful with the wet roads, as drivers are combatting the same weather conditions. Make sure to wear protective eye wear, a helmet and even gloves to protect your hands with the ever changing weather.
When driving during the fall, drivers should take extra precautions as it gets darker earlier each evening. When headed out pay extra attention for people who are out and about, for slippery conditions (wet leaves on the road can be just as slippery as ice, be careful not to hit your brakes while driving over wet leaves), dim your dashboard to avoid glare and keep your car (i.e., windshield and headlights clean) for maximum visibility.
If you were involved in a bike accident or injured in a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact us today at Karp Steiger. Personal Injury lawyers and Workers’ Compensation Attorneys.
