The National Safety Council has named June of 2015 National Safety Month. This year’s National Safety Month theme is entitled “What I Live For,” and promotes the message of “reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road, and in our homes and communities.”
At Daggett Shuler, Greensboro and Winston-Salem Car Accident and Personal Injury law firm, this theme got us thinking about all of the wonderful safety efforts and campaigns that our firm has organized, and helped promote, over the past year.
Our attorneys and staff are dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured in accidents that were caused by the negligence of another party. This is because we know that we are all part of the same North Carolina community, and we all must do our part to help keep each other safe at work, on the roads and everywhere else in our towns and cities.
Daggett Shuler is proud to help organize and support so many wonderful safety campaigns, and today we want to look back and highlight some of our most important safety promotion efforts for our readers and friends in the Greensboro and Winston-Salem communities.
Stay Safe & Sober on Prom Night!
Safe Sober Prom Night is one of the things that makes us proudest of the work we do as a Personal Injury law firm. Now entering its 25th year, Safe Sober Prom Night has reached a generation of young people in the Winston-Salem and Greensboro communities, and encouraged them to make smart, healthy and responsible choices on the biggest night of their lives.
Prom and Graduation season is a time for celebration for teens and their families, but these celebrations must be done safely in order for everyone to truly enjoy their experience. Unfortunately, drinking and driving is still a major problem for many young people, and Safe Sober Prom Night helps Daggett Shuler do our part to lower, and hopefully eventually eliminate, these tragic accidents.
As we began ramping up our efforts to promote the 25th Safe Sober Prom Night campaign, Daggett Shuler created this wonderful, informative infographic that highlights the dangers of drinking and driving among teenagers.

Learn the Facts about Traumatic Brain Injuries!
Traumatic Brain Injuries (or TBIs) are one of the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. Just as no two individuals are exactly alike, brain injuries can affect different victims in drastically different ways. There is still a great deal of education and research that must be done on this subject in order to help reduce the number of brain injuries we see in the U.S every year.
During Brain Injury Awareness Month in March of 2015, Daggett Shuler created another helpful infographic that we hoped would educate our friends and readers about the dangers and costs associated with suffering a TBI. Victims of TBI face an uphill battle in their recovery and healing process, and at Daggett Shuler, we want to do our part to help make their lives even the slightest bit easier.

Obey Posted Speed Limits!
Just as drunk and distracted driving are major causes of collisions and injuries on North Carolina’s roadways, speeding is also a culprit of thousands of fatal accidents every year, especially among young drivers. In April of 2015, North Carolina Police launched a campaign called “Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine.” This campaign focused on strictly monitoring noted areas of speeding, as well as heavily enforcing associated fines.
Daggett Shuler helped bring attention to this safety enforcement campaign by sharing a few troubling statistics about just how many drivers, and in particular young drivers, are guilty of ignoring posted speed limits. Some of the most disturbing statistics included:
- Speeding was responsible for 345 fatalities in North Carolina in 2014
- Statewide in 2012, an estimated 12,245 car accidents involving teenage drivers listed speed as a significant factor.
- As of April of 2015, 56 motorists in North Carolina have lost their lives in accidents caused by excessive speed
If you are the parent of a young driver, please remind them to always obey the speed limit, wear their seatbelt, keep their phone on silent while behind the wheel, and never EVER drink and drive!
