Common Tourist Injuries
Millions of people visit Florida every year. Many of those will rent a car while here to help them get to the beaches, theme parks, or other destinations. Florida roads consistently rank in the top five of the most dangerous roads in the country. Five highways in Florida are listed in the Top 10 most dangerous roads in America.
Another area where tourists to Florida may be injured is in incidents around boating. Fishing, water skiing, paragliding, and tubing, along with just enjoying time on the water are all attractive ways to spend a day. However improper maintenance, unsafe circumstances, or accidents involving multiple boats can lead to injuries that could land someone in the hospital.
There are other areas that can lead to injuries including slips and falls around the pool, soft-tissue damage from theme park rides, and others. If you or someone in your party was injured while visiting Florida and needed medical attention, then we might be able to help you.
The Florida tourist injury attorneys of Chad Barr Law can help investigate your injuries and the situations that lead to them. We will guide you through the process and help you pursue the compensation you deserve.
How to Prove Fault in a Tourism Injury Case
Florida law requires that property owners protect their guests from any and all foreseeable harm. That means maintaining their property, putting notices out about any unsafe areas or situations, and repairing any damage as soon as possible. A property owner who fails in their duty to provide a safe space may be responsible for any damage or injuries.
Vehicle drivers, boat pilots, and ride operators are also required to make sure you’re safe from anything that might cause an injury. When we review your case, we will look at all the facts around your injury and seek any areas where their negligence may have caused your injury.
Regardless of the injury, seeking immediate medical attention is important. Additionally, you want to follow your physician’s recommendations on follow-up care. This will ensure you’re back on to your original self as soon as possible. It will also ensure the courts understand your case as fully as possible, and that you’re completely compensated for any medical bills or lost wages.
Other important information to keep in mind are the timelines around your case. There are statutes and laws that dictate when and how you are able to address injuries through the courts. The most important one is the Statute of Limitations. This is the, usually, four-year period after an accident that allows you to hire an attorney and begin the process of seeking compensation.
