When you go on vacation, you often take a trip to a new location. Your goal is to have fun and experience new things. However, all of the unfamiliar places and situations can result in risky situations that can lead to spring break injuries.
Watch out for the following dangerous situations during your spring break:
If you have sustained spring break injuries in one of these situations, you may be unsure of what to do next. You may not even know who is responsible for your damages. An attorney at Russell & Lazarus APC can evaluate your situation and help you take steps forward to hold someone responsible for the harm they caused.
Even if you are careful about where you spend time, you may sustain spring break injuries because of someone else’s negligence or reckless behavior. Common spring break injuries include the following:
It can be difficult to prove that someone else caused your spring break injuries; however, by collecting evidence from your vacation, a knowledgeable attorney can help you prove your case. We will listen to your story, review your medical records, consult with experts, and interview witnesses to determine what happened.
If you are injured while on vacation, it can be intimidating to seek medical treatment. You are in a foreign location and don’t know the doctors. You don’t have access to your primary care physician, and the person who treats you may not have any of your medical records. It’s important to take the following steps to prevent confusion if you have to seek medical treatment for spring break injuries:
If you have to seek emergency medical treatment, you will have to provide a plethora of information to a hospital, emergency room, urgent care center, or ambulance. It’s best to have that information in one place and easily accessible. Since most people carry their phones on them at all times, that is the most sensible place to keep lists and contacts for medical information.
If your spring break vacation was cut short by a serious injury, you are likely disappointed and upset. However, that doesn’t mean that you have to be overwhelmed with making a personal injury claim by yourself. Call us today at (949) 851-0222 to find out how we can help.
