The Stafford Firm is now specifically available 24/7 throughout the holiday season to help if any incidents occur during this holiday season. Holiday seasons are exclusively for fun, cheer, festivities and visiting people and places. Sometimes it takes months of planning but few people ever plan for what to do when injuries occur during the holiday. With more people going for holidays away from home and others entertaining friends and relatives at their homes, accidents and injuries do inevitably happen. People need an injury lawyer in Miami for legal representation in some of these cases.

Here are some common holiday related injuries:

Falls: Falls account for a good number of injuries over the holidays. Most of these falls come when people are hanging decorations on Christmas trees, on porches, roofs and on trees. These can result in fractures and other emergency care. Ladders that can’t hold reasonable weights sometimes give way resulting in falls, some of which may require surgery and hospitalization. People need to have an injury lawyer in Miami on call.

Fires and electrical shocks: The holiday season is among the busiest for firemen and emergency workers. Fires often start up as a result of mishaps with lighting decorations, and malfunctioning crackers and fireworks. Electrical shocks are also quite common as people try to connect electricity to their decorations.

Car crashes: Injuries from car crashes are very frequent during the holiday seasons and result in a demand for legal advice from an injury lawyer in Miami. The holiday season also happens to be the busiest for all roads and highways across the state and in the country as a whole. From terrible weather, inebriated drivers and busy motorways, crashes occur on most days in the holiday season, hence why a lawyer should be at hand. Common injuries in this case include fractures, internal injuries, cuts and bruises, whiplash and others.

Sports injuries: Some sports are connected to holidays. There are common injuries resulting from skiing accidents and other winter sports. Once in awhile, they are serious enough to warrant emergency care or worse.

Injuries from gift items: Surprisingly, gift items contribute significantly to holiday injury numbers. The Stafford Firm will confirm that cases of cuts and lacerations while trying to cut open presents are normal. Other injuries come from the ingesting of gift items. This type happens when people, especially children swallow some gift items thinking it's chocolate or candy. There is also the added risk of poisoning from the same gift items. Plant poisoning, especially from mistletoe is frequently reported.

In many cases arising from holiday related cases, insurance companies are often quite reluctant to settle claims. This is a problem that arises as the companies try to shift the injury blame from the causes to the victims. It is in such cases that one will need an injury lawyer in Miami to come in and take over the case.
