Suffering an Injury on Vacation
Florida is a popular vacation destination for families across the country featuring attractions such as beaches, resorts and amusement parks open year round. However, even the most well planned vacations can turn into a trip to the emergency room for the unlucky tourist.
Reckless and negligent behavior by other tourists, poor cleaning standards at resorts and faulty facility maintenance at hotels are conditions that injure thousands of tourists every year. Other reported injuries at hotels and vacation resorts include:
- Abuse by resort staff
- Sexual assault as a result of poor security
- A bicycle accident on report property
- Slip and fall injury on a wet floor
- Infection from an unclean hot tub or whirlpool
- Injuries from resort-sponsored sporting activities
- Parasailing injuries
Most parasail operators’ insurance requires them to follow established rules for safety. Watching weather on the radar and being mindful of wind speeds helps companies decide when to cease operations for the day. Unfortunately, the desire for profit will cause some companies to take people out on the water in dangerous weather.
Your claim for injuries will likely be against a large corporation and its insurance company. Make sure that your personal injury attorney has the experience to tackle a complex case.
