Common Spring Break-Related Injuries
Spring break is here in March and April for schools and universities across the United States, and you can expect many people to arrive in Florida for vacation. Whether you are on a family vacation or a trip with your college friends, it is important to stay aware of injury risks on spring break.
If you take a road trip, there is always the risk that you can be involved in a crash. Fatigued or distracted driving are common among traveling highway drivers, and these can both lead to collisions.
In addition, with alcohol being so prevalent for many spring breakers, you should be aware of the increase in drunk driving in the Boca Raton area. Drunk drivers of all ages can cause serious accidents that result in injuries that can disrupt your life in many ways.
Hotel and Resort Accidents
If you are staying at a hotel or resort, stay aware that there are often hazards that can lead to accidents and serious injuries. These can include swimming pool accidents, slip and falls, and more. If you are injured at a hotel or resort, the company can often be held liable.
Unfortunately, too many people have their vacations ruined due to assault or sexual assault. Bar fights and other conflicts – especially between intoxicated individuals – can lead to severe injuries. Also, sexual assault is an all-too-common occurrence in this type of situation. You might be able to hold different parties liable, including the assailant and possibly companies for inadequate security.
