The Price of a Fall in Winter
Even though you’ve seen advertisements for No Fuss Lights, maybe you’re thinking that this service is not for you. After all, why pay good money for professionals to do a job that you can complete yourself?
Let’s take a closer look at that logic – especially when it comes to what can go wrong.
Say you’re up on a ladder, wearing a coat or jacket (and maybe gloves) and trying to string up your Christmas lights. Since you only do this once a year, it’s taking a while to get everything done. And maybe…
- a gust of wind knocks you off balance, or
- the ladder isn’t on a completely flat surface, or
- you lean just a little too far to fasten that last bulb on a light strand, or
- the horizontal spreaders on your stepladder aren’t completely horizontal and start to fold in, or
- your extension ladder is positioned just a little too steeply
… and you fall off the ladder and onto the ground below.
This isn’t some hypothetical, it-can’t-happen-to-me scenario. According to the World Health Organization, roughly 164,000 people a year make a trip to an emergency due to a ladder fall. Many of them suffer severe abrasions, broken bones, or concussions – and about 300 of them die from their injuries each year.
Even if you have health insurance, the costs of the ER visit will take a pretty big chunk out of your holiday budget. Plus, you may have to spend part of the Christmas season in bed, with a cast, or on crutches. Happy holidays!
Not only will No Fuss Lights create a festive holiday lighting display at your home, but by keeping you off of a ladder, you (and your family) will have peace of mind knowing that you won’t be spending time and money on a holiday ER visit.
