Reducing your risk of fractures

Posted on April 10, 2015 3:55 pm under Car Accidents

Road accidents could result from many factors: a defectively designed or manufactured car, speeding, distracted driving, and many other catalysts. Unfortunately, road incidents can sometimes be injurious and cause broken bones, which may translate to lost time at work, hospitalization, and hefty medical bills.

To reduce your risk of fractures while on the road, consider these simple but tested tips:

  • Wear a seatbelt every time you’re in a car. It does not only reduce the risk of fracture, it also saves lives.
  • When riding a bicycle, wearing a helmet and other protective body gear may help you reduce the risk of fractures and other injuries.
  • Pay attention to the sidewalk you’re walking on. Keeping your attention on the sidewalk could make you identify and avoid the hazards that may cause injurious accidents.
  • Follow road and traffic signs. Injurious road accidents are oftentimes a result of the failure to adhere with traffic rules.
