Shining a Light on Solar Eclipse Safety

Shining a Light on Solar Eclipse Safety

With the upcoming solar eclipse on the horizon, it's time to gear up for an astronomical event that's sure to leave us all starry-eyed. But before you stare into the eclipse’s cosmic glory, let's talk about safety. 

At Morgan & Morgan, we deal with injuries every day, and that’s why we always try to share helpful tips to ensure you stay out of harm’s way. So as this celestial spectacle approaches, consider the following:

Drive Safely

Eyes on the road! If the eclipse occurs during your commute, try not to gaze upon its splendor while driving at 65 mph. Avoid any eclipse-induced distractions, so that when the eclipse reaches totality, you’re not experiencing a "total" disaster.


Stay Grounded

Planning on going for a run or taking a leisurely stroll during the eclipse? Watch your step and beware of any unexpected obstacles that may eclipse your path. A bad slip and fall could have you seeing stars for all the wrong reasons.


Protect Your Peepers

Ah, the coveted eclipse glasses—your ticket to safely witness the celestial dance between the sun and the moon. Remember to keep them on at all times during the eclipse to shield your eyes from harmful rays. 

Staring directly at the sun during an eclipse can cause serious damage to your eyes. So play it safe, and your retinas will thank you later.


If All Else Fails, Call Morgan & Morgan

Hopefully our crash course in eclipse safety has you ready for when day turns to darkness. However, if someone else’s negligence eclipses your rights, you may be owed compensation. 

Contact Morgan & Morgan if you experience an injury that’s not your fault. You can call us day or night or even when day suddenly turns into night.
