A Comprehensive Guide to Getting Legal Help After an Accident at a Resort

The last thing you consider when planning your vacation is what to do if you are injured at a resort. You’d rather be thinking about all the fun you’ll have and spending time with your family. Yet resort accidents do happen, and people can get hurt. Vacation accident lawyers at Lipcon, Margulies & Winkleman, P.A. can help you take legal action if such an accident occurs to get the financial compensation you deserve.

A personal injury claim can be complex. You will be going up against a big resort’s insurance company and lawyers, who will want to pay you as little as possible to settle your claim. You will need a compassionate yet aggressive legal team on your side to fight for your rights and recover the compensation you deserve for your injuries and losses.

For nearly 50 years, Lipcon, Margulies & Winkleman, P.A. has achieved favorable verdicts and settlements for clients in various practice areas, from maritime to resort and hotel claims. Our team has a reputation for winning even the most difficult and complex cases.

Give Yourself a Chance of Winning Your Resort Accident Case by Hiring a Vacation Attorney

After you have been involved in a vacation accident, there are a few steps to take to protect yourself and your case. Start by getting immediate medical care, regardless of whether your injuries are minor. Moreover, ensure you follow the healthcare provider’s instructions. You must collect all the medical records, as you will have to share them with your attorney later.

Resorts and hotels must have safety procedures and risk management policies, including taking a report when someone is injured. Ask for the manager, security, or owner and make a report. When making the report, stick to the facts and do not make excuses, explanations, or admission of guilt. Doing so may be used against you later in the claim or trial process.

If possible, document the accident scene and gather evidence. Take photos of your injuries and what caused the accident. Refrain from assuming the resort will keep evidence. They may clean or fix the area or issue that has led to your accident, so it is always better to play it safe and gather evidence while you still can.

It is equally important to avoid using the internet to address the accident. While writing negative reviews on the resort website or social media may be tempting, keep in mind that every statement you make might impact your claim. You should avoid discussing your recovery, injuries, or claim online like any personal injury claim. Keep the conversations about the resort accident between you and your vacation accident attorney.
