Preparing for a Host of Accidents in Vestavia Hills

Again, while all accidents are not avoidable, there are steps you can take to ensure your likelihood of being in an accident is lower. However, you cannot account for someone else's negligence and the fact that you may be a victim of another's reckless or dangerous behavior. A few tips for keeping yourself safe are:

  • Drive defensively. You cannot account for reckless or impaired drivers, but you can be more aware and careful of your surroundings, possibly avoiding a dangerous driver.
  • Be aware of all dogs. Any dog can bite. Dog bites and attacks can be incredibly serious due to the nature of the incident and the strength of a dog's jaw. Realize that all dog owners are not in control of their dogs. And even the most well-behaved dog can act erratically. Be cautious around all dogs at dog parks, at friends' houses, at dog-friendly restaurants, and anywhere unknown dogs may frequent.
  • Watch your step. Slip and falls can happen in a moment, and you certainly cannot always prevent them. However, keeping an eye out for wobbly steps, unstable decks, wet and slippery flooring, and other pitfalls will increase your chances of avoiding a serious fall due to someone else not maintaing property.
  • Look both ways always. Pedestrian accidents are a big problem in Alabama, even more so than in other states. In a recent year, more than 760 pedestrian accidents, 125 of which were fatal, occurred in Alabama. Pedestrian-related accidents have been occurring frequently for several years in Alabama, and Vestavia Hills is not immune to this trend. Always look both ways, even if you have the right of way.
  • Always use-and encourage your friends to-use ride share services when you have been drinking. The less intoxicated drivers on the street, the less chance of a tragic accident involving a drunk driver. The National Highway Traffic Safety (NHTSA) reported 268 drunk driving fatalities in Alabama in a recent year, which works out to 5.49 fatalities per 100,000 Alabamians. By NHTSA's calculation, 1 in 3 fatalities in Alabama involve a driver who had a blood-alcohol concentration of .01.
  • Use general caution in all situations.Being ultra-aware of your surroundings, the medicine you take, the animals you encounter, the way you drive, and more can help you avoid being the victim of an accident at the hands of another person's reckless behavior.
  • Medical Malpractice and Nursing Home Abuse. Do your due diligence when selecting a doctor, a medical facility or a nursing home for a loved one. There are many ways to search the qualifications and customer service reviews for all healthcare providers. Selecting a quality doctor or nursing home is paramount to staying safe and lessening the chance of becoming a victim.

The fact is that most accidents are just that-accidents-and cannot be avoided. However, being more aware of your surroundings can certainly help you avoid some of them.
