What are some steps to take if you’re injured while on vacation? Many people may think of these injuries as occurring only in home settings, such as car accidents or slip-and-falls around their hometown, but these accidents can happen in any type of setting. Slippery sidewalks, unclearly marked hazard signs (such as “wet floor”), unsafe balconies, and other miscellaneous situations can lead to a variety of injuries while you’re on vacation. If you’ve been injured while away from home, you may be unsure of what to do next.
If you have been injured due to the fault of another, no matter where you are, it’s important to submit any relevant reports and claims in time. Also, try and take photographs of your injury and the location where it happened, if at all possible. Try and keep a record of your doctor’s appointments, notes, and outcomes. If the accident is due to someone else’s fault, it may be time to seek legal advice. Attorney Doug Stoehr is an Altoona, PA area personal injury lawyer who is skilled in handling your legal claims.
