How to Stay Safe at Holiday Parties

Here’s how to avoid injuries when celebrating the season:

  1. Drink Responsibly

Indulging in festive drinks is a common part of holiday parties, but it’s important to pace yourself and be mindful of your alcohol consumption. Drink water or non-alcoholic beverages between alcoholic ones to stay hydrated. You can also choose to stick to a one-drink limit or even be a designated driver and skip the alcoholic drinks entirely.

  1. Have a Safe Way to Get Home

Whether you plan on drinking or not, prioritize your safety by planning your transportation in advance. Arrange for a designated driver, use rideshare services, or secure a cab to ensure a safe journey home. Planning your transportation ahead of time ensures that you can celebrate worry-free.

One additional tip here: make sure you have a few back-up options. For example, if you designate a driver make sure you also have a back-up driver, money for a cab, and money for a hotel. This way, if your designated driver leaves early or does end up drinking, you still have ways to get home safely.

  1. Be Mindful of Your Surroundings

In crowded party environments, keep track of your personal belongings, be aware of emergency exits, and stay vigilant in large crowds. Staying alert not only increases the odds that you’ll stay safe but it also allows you to respond quickly to any unexpected situations.

  1. Trust Your Instincts

If at any point during the holiday party something feels uncomfortable, leave the situation. Your well-being takes precedence, and it’s okay to excuse yourself if something feels unsafe.

  1. Leave with Others

Whenever possible, leave the holiday party with others. Traveling in groups enhances safety and provides mutual support. If you arrived with friends or colleagues, coordinate your departure to ensure that everyone gets home safely.

  1. Plan Ahead, Especially if You’ll be in a New Venue

If a holiday party is in a new venue, familiarize yourself with the layout. Identify restrooms and exits, and be aware of any potential safety concerns. Planning ahead in an unfamiliar setting helps you navigate the environment confidently. If you have any mobility concerns planning ahead is also essential to make sure the venue has the features you need to stay safe.

If you’re ever injured at a holiday party, it’s important to get a medical evaluation to determine how you’ve been injured and to get you started on appropriate treatment. It’s also important to protect your rights. Depending on your situation, you may have a workers’ compensation claim, a premises liability claim, or another way to seek compensation.

★★★★★
I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
