Miami Vacation Accident Attorneys
The worst thing to happen on any vacation is a disruption of any kind that forces you to change plans after a long awaited time to unplug. When this disruption results in severe injuries to a member of your family, this can have devastating consequences to your vacation and your future. If you have experienced this type of vacation accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries.
Vacation accidents come in many shapes and forms, and can include the following:
- Car accidents
- Slip and falls
- Truck accidents
- ATV accidents
- Cruise ship accidents
- Taxi or Uber/Lyft accidents
- Concert accidents
The negligent actions of another person often lead to these types of accidents, many which occur on a business’ premises. The actions of a business owner may lead to their liability for any accidents which occur on the premises. An owner of property has a high duty of care to protect visitors on the property, especially paying customers. Hotel guests, diners, and shoppers should all be protected by the relevant property owners and informed of any dangerous situations which might exist in the premises. For example, a recent spill on the floor or a rusted bannister should be immediately addressed, with signs affixed to warn any visitors. The failure of a property owner to warn visitors of any hidden dangers could lead to disastrous consequences.
Florida Personal Injury Recovery and Claims
The person responsible for causing the accident should be held liable for any resulting injuries. Depending on the type of accident, the person’s insurance company may be prepared to offer you a settlement, whether it is a homeowner’s insurance or auto insurance. However, insurance companies are in the business of making money and therefore will encourage victims to accept settlement offers which might not accurately cover the extent of your injuries and damages.
A claim for damages after a vacation accident should include the following:
- Medical expenses
- Rehabilitation expenses
- Lost wages
- Future earnings
- Out of pocket expenses, such as vacation rebooking
- Pain and suffering
The aftermath of a vacation accident is often difficult and chaotic, as the victim and their family must search for medical care and handle all related expenses out of pocket in an unfamiliar city. Any claim for damages should take into account not only the expenses related to the injury, but also the stress and strain of the injuries on the family.
