Injured on Vacation? Here’s What to Do
Florida has a huge tourism industry and many people visit the Sunshine State every year on vacation. Unfortunately, even on vacation, accidents can happen. If you and your family are visiting Florida or anywhere else on vacation, you should know what to do when an accident occurs.
Types of Accidents That Occur on Vacation
When discussing accidents, many will automatically think of a car accident. There are actually many types of accidents that can occur on vacation, such as:
- Slip and fall by the pool, in a restaurant, or in a retail store.
- Fall down the stairs at the hotel
- Food poisoning
- Diving equipment malfunctioned causing injury
And these are just a few of the many different ways you may be injured on vacation.
After an Accident
If you are able to take photos and notes at the scene you should do so. You should also get the information of anyone else involved in the accident including their contact information and insurance coverage information. Any witnesses to the accident should be asked for contact information so they can provide a statement about what occurred.
Seek Medical Attention
Even if you do not feel like you have suffered any injuries it is important to seek medical care immediately to be sure. There are many types of injuries that may not present themselves right away and your condition should be monitored for a short period of time at least.
When you seek medical attention, be sure to mention the accident to establish a link between your injuries and the accident that occurred. It is also very important that you follow any instructions given by medical professionals and follow up with any recommended care.

They were able to direct me with medical care questions, and advocate on my behalf with insurance companies.
Alex and his team were my rock after I was hit by a car while riding my bike. They were able to direct me with medical care questions, advocate on my behalf with insurance companies, and really listen on days where I had pain and was completely frustrated with my insurance company and their lack of response. Highly recommend!!!!
