With the summer months upon us, many of us will be leaving town and heading off to nearby beaches and resorts for a much needed vacation. While vacation can be a great way to spend time with family and friends and relax, it also exposes people to risks that they may not be exposed to on a day to day basis. When accidents happen on vacation, victims and their families may be eligible to receive significant financial compensation. The personal injury lawyers of Shane Smith Law know how to help personal injury victims recover for their losses, and are dedicated to obtaining the best possible outcome in each case they handle.

The type of risks that person is exposed to while on vacation depends largely on the type of vacation activities in which they engage. For example, scuba diving involves a much different set of risks then would playing shuffleboard. This being said, there are some common injuries that people sustain on vacation. These include the following:


  • Slip and fall accidents

  • Taxi accidents

  • Food poisoning

  • Pool and hot tub accidents

  • Fitness center accidents

  • Beach accidents

  • Recreational injuries

  • Environmental exposure accidents


These injuries have the potential to result in significant economic and non-economic losses, including significant medical expenses, unexpected travel expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment. Fortunately, an experienced attorney can help you recover for these and other losses you may experience. People injured while on vacation should make sure to seek medical care for their injuries as soon as possible, and also to file an official report with the manager or property owner of the premises where your accident occurred.
