Deerfield Beach Vacation Injury Lawyer
For most people, when they are on vacation, it feels as if they have stepped away from reality and into some fantasy world where real-life problems cannot touch them—and for most people, vacations end with the same happy, delusional thoughts. For others, however, reality has a way of sneaking up on them, oftentimes in the form of injury.
When you go on vacation, you are exposed to the same risks to which you are exposed at home, if not more. From foodborne illnesses to pedestrian accidents, and from slip and fall injuries to swimming pool accidents, there are countless hazards to which you may become victim at any moment. While this is not intended by any means to scare you out of taking time away from work and at-home responsibilities, it is meant to inform of you of your rights when vacation injuries do occur, and to advise you on what to do should if you do happen to be involved in an accident while away from home. If you were injured while on vacation, our Deerfield Beach vacation injury lawyers are here to help.
Types of Accidents to Which You May Be Exposed
At Leifer & Ramirez, we are dedicated to helping victims of negligence recover adequate compensation for their injuries and ailments. This is the case even if our clients were injured out of city or state. It is not uncommon for vacationers to be exposed to premises hazards, negligent security issues, or dangerous attractions while on their getaway. Frequent sites of tourist accidents and injuries include resorts, hotels, pools, spas, water parks, bars, restaurants, nightclubs, amusement/theme parks, water parks, racetracks, beaches, casinos, golf course, and beaches. Some common types of accidents visitors may be at risk of include the following:
- Falling object injuries;
- Vehicle accidents;
- Slip and fall injuries;
- Elevator and escalator accidents;
- Food poisoning;
- Physical or sexual assault;
- Drowning; and
- Knife or gunshot wounds.
Unfortunately, many vacation accidents result in serious injury, which in turn results in missed work, lost wages, on extensive medical bills. Oftentimes, health insurance is not enough to cover the cost of injuries. This is especially the case when injuries are considered “catastrophic.” Our Deerfield Beach vacation injury lawyers at Leifer & Ramirez aggressively pursue damages on behalf of injured parties so that they can pay for the full extent of their injuries and not just the immediate consequences. If an accident results in wrongful death, our lawyers will aggressively pursue compensation for not just funeral expenses, but for loss of future income, loss of consortium, and mental anguish as well.
