When planning a vacation away from home, many people only think about the fun and enjoyment of the trip, never counting on tourist accidents to happen to them. Accidents can occur in a number of different ways from a simple injury to a major catastrophic event. It is virtually impossible for the most prudent and cautious tourist to avoid having an accident occur while on vacation. In case of an accident, the Lassen Law Firm, Philadelphia accident attorneys, is here to help.
Common accidents that tourists may encounter include car accidents, bus accidents, pedestrian accidents, slip and fall accidents, amusement park accidents, and particularly in the summer, accidents involving water such as boating or drowning accidents. The probability of an accident can also increase when the vacation destination tends to be in a remote area. These types of tourist accidents may be from the use of all-terrain vehicles or recreational vehicles. Accidents occurring in the more remote areas also have limited medical facilities, if any at all. If someone is injured, the injuries sustained may be worsened due to a delay in getting medical attention.
People are traveling more now than they ever have in the past and traveling greater distances. This is due partly to the ease of scheduling vacations on the Internet, as well as low gas prices. Travel websites often offer package deals that allow for combinations of flight, hotel and rental car charges to be bundled into one purchase price. Not only is it easier to travel farther, it is also more economical with price breaks via travel sites without having to pay a travel agent.
With tourist accidents occurring away from home, it can be increasingly difficult to maintain contact with the responsible parties, particularly when the accident occurs in another state than the injured person's state of residence. Other considerations that need to be taken into account are keeping track of witnesses, any applicable statutes of limitations that may apply, getting photos of the scene of the accident, as well as many other factors to perform through investigation into the matter.
