What To Do If You Are Injured During Spring Break-A Panama City Lawyer's Perspective
Spring break is in full swing and madness is all around! With the surge of so many out of state visitors, it’s not usual for accidents or injuries to take place.
It’s not always the result of too much partying, either. For starters, driving conditions can be different from that of what you are used to and road structures (such as unusual traffic circles, clover leafs, etc.). can make it difficult to navigate your surroundings.
When this happens, the driver may become distracted and car accidents often result.
You may be injured in a boating accident or while using recreational equipment such as jet skis or wave runners. And, there’s always the chance of a slip and fall at a resort that has failed to properly keep an area safe from moisture such as pool water, leaks or beverages.
Of course, the last thing anyone wants is to get into an accident while on spring break. You’re likely in a rental car and don’t have a familiar doctor or hospital nearby. It’s a scary situation and one that any vacationer would like to avoid.
In most cases, we find that spring-breakers involved in an accident will usually head home after receiving emergency medical treatment to continue treatment with doctors and hospitals they trust.
But, if there is a personal injury claim to be settled, the injured party may still likely want to work with an attorney here in the Bay County area.
That’s where we come in.
We understand that you may feel more comfortable receiving treatment at home, and therefore we work with families who are out of state to continue pursuing justice on their behalf here in Florida.
Much of our work can be handled on the phone via conference calls and, in the case of a necessary in-person meeting, we are as flexible as possible to accommodate travel plans from out of state.
So if you’ve been injured in an accident during spring break here in Panama City or Bay County FL and need a lawyer, we invite you to contact our law firm at (850) 795-4979 and ask to schedule a complimentary consultation with the mention of this article.
