A catastrophic injury can happen in any type of accident: car accidents, truck accidents, slip and fall accidents, sports accidents, and many more.
Given the possibility of acquiring a catastrophic injury, it’s not always possible to protect yourself entirely from them.
There are, however, certain measures you can take to reduce your chances of getting into a serious accident and receiving such an injury.
Many catastrophic injuries happen in auto accidents. Slowing down and driving at the posted speed limit can increase your reaction time should another driver make a dangerous maneuver on the road.
Watch Where You Step
Winter is not the only time to step carefully. Slip and fall accidents happen indoors as well as outdoors. Keep an eye out for uneven stairs and unsecured rugs or mats.
Wear Protective Gear
Protection is the best way to prevent serious injuries. Equip yourself with the proper safety equipment when playing sports, riding a bike, or engaging in other physical activity.
