June is National Safety Month. Accidental injury has become the third leading cause of death for the first time in U.S. history. Based on new injury statistics, an American is accidentally injured every second and killed every three minutes by a preventable event – a drug overdose, a vehicle crash, a fall, a drowning or another preventable incident. A total of 14,803 more people died accidentally in 2016 than in 2015, the largest single-year percent rise since 1936. (National Safety Council).
There are many ways to prevent many accidents and minimize damage caused by accidents:
- Be more aware of your surroundings
- Stay physically fit, eat and rest well to improve you alertness
- Be careful when taking prescribed medication (learn side
- Don't walk or drive while on a cell phone or with headphones
- Learn CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver
- Keep a first aide kit handy
- Don't drink and drive
If you do have an accident, it is always good to have an accident insurance policy to minimize the financial damage. There are accidental injury and accidental death policies to help cover financial loss if an accident occurs. These types of policies are usually the least expensive ones to own.
