New Mexico injuries and thanksgiving ideally do not go together. However, while most people try to have a safe holiday, there are certain risks of injuries that are more likely to occur on Thanksgiving than other days of the year. The Olympia Medical Center released their top five Thanksgiving injuries that are likely to occur during celebrations.
Not surprisingly, topping the list is heartburn. To avoid that casualty, doctors recommend not laying down to watch football after the festive meal and avoiding eating too much. As if that is possible. Nest on the list is weight gain. Not much of a surprise there.
Third is choking which they recommend can be avoided by not talking, drinking, or laughing. That really sounds like a great holiday gathering. Perhaps they should recommend no eye contact as well.
The list is rounded out with excessive drinking and finally cuts and burns. Essentially, from a New Mexico drunk driving lawyer's perspective, excessive drinking is the big one to look out for here.
Some of the posts on our injury lawyer blog are helpful or at the very least informative. This is neither of those. Regardless, happy thanksgiving.
