Portlanders 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.
