Heat Stroke

Hot summers can have their own appeal – iced tea, swimming, and golden tans; however, sometimes the heat can be too much. Exposure to temperatures above 90 degrees Fahrenheit can cause rapid heat exhaustion or even heat stroke, which can be life threatening.

If you or someone you know has suffered from a heat stroke due to another person’s carelessness, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages. For assistance with filing a legal claim, contact a Cincinnati heat stroke attorney at Stepleton Dugan, LLC by calling 513-321-7733 today.

Summertime Tips

Hot summers can put you at risk of heat exhaustion or stroke; however, if you follow some of the following safety precautions, you might be able to enjoy a cool summer – or, at the very least, avoid the hospital:

  • Wear hats that shade your face
  • Do not partake in strenuous physical activity during the heat of the day
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Work in the shade, when possible
  • Take cold showers or go swimming to lower body temperatures

While the above tips can help you stay cool, there is no guarantee that you will avoid heat related illnesses. If you are experiencing symptoms of heat exhaustion or heat stroke, seek emergency medical care immediately, as both can be life threatening conditions.
