Safety Tips for Trekking Oregon's Best Outdoor Destinations

Posted By Paulson Coletti Trial Attorneys PC || 4-Feb-2016

PortlandPortlanders are notorious for their love of outdoor adventures. There is so much to do and the website ShareOregon is just a small example of this! This site allows users to share adventures — such as the Tree to Tree Adventure Park or kayaking across Sturgeon Lake — and help others find some of the best destinations in Portland and all of Oregon. It is important to remember, though, that while you can enjoy all of the adventures that Portland has to offer, you must make safety a top priority. At Paulson Coletti, our team of Portland injurylawyers want to help you prepare for your next outdoor adventure with safety tips!

Keep Communication Available

It is important when you go on any outdoor adventure to keep some kind of communication available. If anything should happen and you were injured for any reason, having a cell phone or some other form of communication can help get you help as soon as possible.

Avoid Closed Off Locations

If you are trying to follow a trail or some other route and notice that it is closed off, it is best to follow the instructions. There could be a safety danger that you would want to avoid so you don’t have to worry about the potential of injury.

Be Aware of Your Surroundings

Know where you are going and know that any equipment you have is safe. For instance, if you are going to kayak, make sure there are no holes or extensive damage. If you receive equipment that has not been properly maintained or a defective product, it can lead to serious injury.

Don’t take a risk without making sure you take the proper precautions. When going out on any outdoor adventure, the ultimate goal is to have fun, but keep yourself safe in the meantime. If a defective product or someone else’s negligence leads to an accident and you sustain an injury, call us to discuss any legal options that may be available to you.
