Wisconsin Accident Prevention
On August 1st, 2020, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers issued a state-wide mask wearing mandate. In addition, the public is to social distance and be aware of other precautions to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Accidents can happen to anyone and at any time. If they came announced, they wouldn’t be called “accidents.” As we navigate through the pandemic, it may take more effort to avoid accidents. However, prevention of unintentional injuries remains possible; COVID-19 related and otherwise.
Accidents Often Avoidable
The current COVID-19 crisis reminds us all about the importance of actions that can prevent further harm. Slips, falls, crashes and deaths in personal injury lawsuits almost always happen without purposeful intent. Most folks don’t intend to cause harm but actions or inactions can lead to exactly that. Being overly cautious, considerate and law-abiding can save lives. With a little forth site, responsibility and training/education; unintentional accidents and injuries can often be prevented.
