We’ve said goodbye to 2016 and heartwarmingly welcomed 2017 into our lives, and with this special occasion we and our Ottawa personal injury lawyer have come up with some tips that will help ensure you and your family’s mental and financial safety throughout the whole year. Make sure you stay faithful to these tips in order for you and your business to have the most prosperous and joyful year that it can possibly be.
Review Your Auto Insurance
Reviewing your auto insurance and making sure you have the right one is a crucial part of starting your new year at a great price, as upgraded accident benefits and adequate cover in case of a catastrophic injury is essential to your state of well-being.
Check Your Properties for Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms
Being assured that you are in optimal safety when you are at home or in your office is crucial when it comes to a healthy lifestyle. Check for battery life, existence and expiry date of every alarm in your establishment.
Evaluate Your Disability Insurance Policy
This might be regarded as one of the most expensive types of insurance out there, but it is a lifesaver if you are put in the situation of needing it. Covering all of your necessities when an important event occurs such as starting a business, having a baby or buying a new house is critical in case you become disabled through injury.
Increase Lighting around Your Properties
Properties that have a great amount of lighting are less likely to result in injuries from unseen hazards. Not only will this assure your state of well-being but will also keep intruders away, as a well-lit establishment will make them less prone to target it.
Leave More Space between You and the Front Car
You cannot control the reactions of the drivers ahead of you, and your best bet is to keep a safe distance between your car and theirs, as you may not know what can occur. Being caught off guard in a situation where you haven’t kept a fair distance can result in catastrophic injuries.
Always Seek Medical Attention
We always fight with insurance companies for clients who were mistreated by doctors and who assumed that an injury which was in fact life-threatening was treated as a minor one thus resulting in a catastrophic injury. Not only do these people did not want to bother the doctor, it also makes it harder for us to prove the cause of the injury, and a medic can help quicken this process.
We strongly advise you to follow these essential pieces of advice that will most certainly improve your lifestyle
and state of well-being for the entire duration of this year.
