Accidents Can Happen Anywhere – #SummerSafety

Do you hold your breath every time your kid is playing at the park or starts a soccer game. As a mom of two little girls I always worry that they will get injured while playing at the park or during sports.

Play Structure

Kids love to run and play, who can really blame them because being a kid is awesome.

My one dare-devil child is always falling down and getting hurt, she just loves to play and sometimes doesn’t pay attention to what she is doing.

Thankfully she has yet to break her arm or leg while playing but I know it could happen one day.

You never know when or where a childhood injury is going to happen. It could be a the park, the roller rink, the soccer field or even your own  backyard. I have seen plenty of pictures posted on Facebook this summer of kids with broken arms that happened during their simple summertime adventures.

My girls are into Gymnastics and as with any sport their is a risk of injury.

I remind my girls to be careful while playing at the park and to properly warm up before playing sports. But I know accidents can happen so that is why I am looking into Aflac’s Supplemental Insurance to help with expenses when one of them gets injured.

Did you know that Each year, 2.6 million children visit emergency rooms for sports-related injuries? Safety is important, but accidents do happen. When unexpected injuries happen, make sure you’re prepared with supplemental insurance like Aflac’s accident policy to help cover out-of-pocket expenses.

Accident insurance helps families stay ahead of the medical and out-of-pocket expenses that add up quickly after an injury, so they can focus on recovery – not finances.

Through Aflac’s trailblazing One Day PaySM initiative, Aflac U.S. can receive process, approve and disburse payment for eligible claims in one business day.
