What To Do After Being Injured on Vacation

Tuesday, May 2, 2017

What To Do After Being Injured on VacationBeing injured on vacation is a painful and stressful experience. It is especially challenging when you're out-of-state and not local to the area, and you don't necessarily know your rights or who to turn to for help.

Because our law office serves Central Florida, home to dozens of amusement parks, theme parks, and other popular tourist attractions, we often help clients who suffered injuries while on vacation get the compensation they need and deserve.

What To Do After Being Injured on Vacation


  • Get contact information for any witnesses to the accident. It may be difficult to track these people down later.
  • If possible, be mindful to collect evidence such as photos of the scene and photos of injuries.
  • Write everything down - make notes of the weather conditions, contact information of law enforcement officers at the scene, and anything else that may be relevant.
  • Maintain copies of all medical records associated with your injury.
  • Do not sign any documents or settlement agreements regarding the accident before consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney.
  • Contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible - do not let an insurance company take advantage of you by denying your claim or lowballing a settlement offer.

I was referred to Draper Law by my father in-law after being hit from behind in an auto accident. I didn't realize, at the time, what an important decision I was making by hiring a personal injury attorney to represent me. Charles Draper took the time to explain the process and what I could expect. His professional team was there for me every step of the way through a long, and often complicated, legal experience. I just want to express my sincerest gratitude for all the efforts that were taken by Charlie and his team on my behalf in obtaining a settlement on my case.
