- Christmas Safety Tips from Phillips Law Group
December 23, 2022
The holiday season can be very exciting, but that excitement also comes with the hustle and bustle of Christmas which can lead to unfortunate incidents like house fires, car accidents, and more. This Christmas, we wanted to offer just a few safety tips to keep in mind to keep you and your loved ones safer during the holidays.
For starters, you’ve probably already got your decorations on display. (And if you don’t, no judgment! It’s the twelve days of Christmas, after all. You’ve got time!) A lot of those decorations likely need electricity to work, which can lead to a very common cause of house fires during the holiday season: overloaded outlets.
Be sure to never overload your outlet or power strips! Those lights may be pretty, but they aren’t worth the devastation of a house fire. You’ve also got to remember to turn off holiday lights and decorations whenever you leave the house and when you go to bed; set an alarm on your phone if you need a reminder!
Speaking of fires, a lot of cooking happens on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, too. Never leave anything you’re cooking unattended – that can be another cause of a heartbreaking house fire. Whether it’s your stovetop, oven, or air fryer, keep an eye on your appliances and your holiday meal, and always have a fire extinguisher nearby just in case.
Many people also set up and decorate a Christmas tree for the holidays, and while they can be a beautiful addition to your home, they also come with certain precautions you need to take. If it’s a real tree, for instance, make sure to keep it hydrated to keep it from becoming a fire hazard. And if it’s fake, as noted above, be careful how many lights and other electric adornments you plug into one outlet.
A lot of people also travel during the holiday season, and many do so by car. You may also be rushing around trying to buy those last few family gifts, or heading home from a company holiday party.
No matter where you’re traveling to or from, make it a priority to drive safely. Bad weather or distractions like your cell phone can turn a calm trip to the store to pick up a Christmas ham into a tragedy in seconds.
And of course, never ever drink and get behind the wheel of a car. Those holiday parties may be fun, but you should plan ahead to have a safe way to get home if you choose to drink alcohol at a holiday get-together.
Keep in mind, too, that other people may be distracted or have had a few drinks before getting on the road. If you do have the misfortune to end up in a wreck during the Christmas season, make sure to give us a call at Phillips Law Group if you need legal assistance.
These are just a few Christmas safety tips to remember this holiday season, and of course, accidents happen every day. If you find yourself in need of a personal injury attorney this Christmas, please don’t hesitate to give our team a call.
Happy Holidays from the whole Phillips Law Group team!

Liz was great
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
Phillips law group is the best around!
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.

Here your work, your dedication, effort and discipline are valued, in addition to the fact that, as a woman, as an immigrant and as a human being, I have been given value and empowerment. We are a successful law firm because all workers feel part of a great family. I am very proud and honored to work at Phillips Law Group.
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
