Ahh Thanksgiving, a most wonderful time of delicious food, beer, and football. There is no question that the last two years have been difficult for everyone. Regardless, we, at Torgenson Law, want to wish you a joyful, safe, and relaxing weekend with friends and family. And as Arizona Injury Lawyers, we know that the chaos associated with holiday weekends tend to pose additional personal injury threats. We just want to remind you to have fun this weekend, but to also be vigilant on the roads as well as in the kitchen.

Turkey may be at the center stage of the holiday feast but it can also be the most dangerous. Did you know that Thanksgiving Day is the peak day for home cooking fires in the United States? Here are 4 facts and tips to to keep in mind while you roast, grill, or fry your turkeys: 

  1. Unattended cooking is by far the leading factor in cooking fires and fire injuries or deaths. No matter how juicy the family gossip, make sure you do not burn the turkey.
  2. Keep your children safe from holiday cooking hazards by making sure they remain at least 3 feet away from any hot cooking surface. 
  3. Make sure your smoke alarm is working! Quick detection is the best detection. 
  4. Keep the fryer outside and away from walls and moisture.

In addition, as most of you likely know, traffic will likely be heavier than usual this weekend with holiday travelers, last second grocery shoppers, as well as Black Friday customers. These busy roadways may only add to the road rage of those who had a less than enjoyable Thanksgiving meal at their in-laws. Accordingly, drive safe, observe speed limits, and most importantly, do not drive drunk. Thanksgiving is a time for us to appreciate everything we have in our lives, so let us all do our part in keeping each other safe this weekend to better avoid personal injuries.

This Thanksgiving, we are thankful for our friends, family, and the outstanding work of our Torgenson Law team. But most importantly, we are thankful that we have the knowledge, skills, and opportunity to stand up for personal injury victims and fight for their rights. We are here for you fellow Arizonans. If you are injured this holiday season, do not hesitate to call Torgenson Law at (602) 759-0012. Stay safe and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
