Legal HistoryThanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November every year.  It is not only a Federal holiday, but also a day of giving thanks for the blessings in our lives.  On this day, friends and families usually gather together and celebrate the holiday while eating Turkey, drinking wine, and being merry.  However, even this joyous day comes with a few legal liabilities.  Below are the legal liabilities associated with Thanksgiving Day that you should be wary of.

Turkey Fryers Can Pose Many Dangers!

Although fried turkey might taste amazing, making it should come with a disclaimer.  According to a source, “grease and cooking-related claims more than double on Thanksgiving Day” because according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) “deep fryer fires cause an average of 5 deaths, 60 injuries, and more than $15 million in property damage each year.”  I’m definitely going to stay away from making fried turkey this year.  An oven-cooked turkey is probably safer to cook and way healthier nutritionally!  How many of you plan on making fried turkey this year?

People Get Violent On Black Friday, The Day After Thanksgiving!

“Black Friday” is the day after Thanksgiving Day where consumers go on shopping sprees looking to buy the cheapest possible products.  On this day, stores open at the wee hours of the morning to kick off the holiday shopping season.  But this day also comes with many legal liabilities.  For some reason, people forget how to act like civilized human beings and instead behave like animals.  Some people have reportedly been trampled over by other avid black Friday consumers, while others have been sprayed in the face with pepper spray.  These sorts of behavior are considered criminal and will lead to your arrest.

Just because it is Thanksgiving Day and everyone is being thankful, please remember that you are not relieved from the everyday liabilities associated with injuring other people.
