Personal Injuries on Christmas – 3 Dangerous Accidents this Holiday Season

Protect yourself and others this Christmas from personal injuries.

Christmas lights, carolers and busy malls are always signs of the holiday season. 

While Christmas is normally reserved for rest and time with family, personal injuries can still happen.

A personal injury occurs when someone is injured due to the negligence of another party. The injury may be from another person, a business, etc. 

There are a large number of personal injuries one can suffer from this Christmas. 


This Christmas and holiday season, around 115 million Americans are expected to travel. Many will fly, while others may travel via car. 

Car accidents can lead to a personal injury. Studies show that there were nearly 50 total crashes last Christmas day, and almost ten percent were fatal.

There are many different car accident causes, such as:

  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Drowsy driving
  • Disobeying traffic signs or signals

Do your best to stay safe on the roads this Christmas.


Slip and fall accidents are one of the most common personal injuries, likely due to the fact that they can happen virtually anywhere. 

This Christmas, many slip and fall accidents will happen between shoppers and employees.

Shoppers may get injured on an elevator or escalator not functioning properly. 

Furthermore, imagine a situation where a store employee helps set up a large Christmas wreath. In order to hang it, they must climb a ladder.

No other colleagues help the employee, and the unsteady ladder topples, forcing them to fall to the ground and break their arm. 


Dog bite injuries can cause much pain and distress to victims. While we often think of dog attacks happening on the sidewalk, they may occur at a friend or family member’s house during Christmas. 

According to California Civil Code 3342, the dog owner is “liable for the damages suffered by any person who is bitten by the dog while in a public place or lawfully in a private place”. This includes any property that belongs to the dog owner. 

Other causes of a personal injury one can suffer on Christmas might include:

If you suffer a personal injury this Christmas, be sure to:

  • If you’re in a car accident, call the police and get first responders to the scene.
  • Collect information from the negligent party, such as name, email, and phone.

  • Get any witness information.
  • Don’t hesitate to contact a Los Angeles personal injury attorney regarding the situation.
