Accidents happen, and most of the time, the best thing to do is to get back up, brush yourself off, and keep going. However, some accidents are a little harder to recover from; assuming that is even possible.
Slips and falls, poisoning, car collisions, these are just a few of things that account for the 3 percent of all female deaths in the United States each year or roughly more than 37,000 women.
One recent study reported that one-third of these accidents were found to be traffic-related, while another 7,800 deaths were attributed to falls. While many accidents cannot be avoided, very often common sense can go a long way. For example, always wear a seatbelt when you are in the car, put smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in your home, ensure that any toxic materials are clearly labeled and avoid walking on known slippery surfaces. In a perfect world and with a little more diligence on everyone's behalf, hopefully, we can prove wrong the sentiment that “common sense isn’t that common.”
