My Legal Aspirations

For as long as I can remember, the legal field has always fascinated me. While my friends watched sitcoms and cartoons, I chose to watch courtroom dramas and real life trials unfold. There was never really any question as to what I wanted to be when I got older. The only profession for me was that of a trial lawyer. Unfortunately, a serious car accident several years ago changed all that. Now, my injuries prevent me from leaving my home most days. However, my love for the law has never went away. While I may not be able to realize my dreams of becoming a trail lawyer, I still wish to help people with their legal problems. That is why I decided to start this blog. It is my hope that the information contained in these pages will help other accident victims like me when filing their personal injury claims.

Time For A Get-Away? Be Aware Of Dangers


Now more than ever before, people are excited to get out of the house. Being stuck at home has been no fun, and you might be more than ready to take to the open road for a little vacay. While the pandemic threat may have lessened, you can still be in danger when you travel away from home. 

Unfamiliar Surroundings

You may be accustomed to your local areas and know how to avoid areas of crime, traffic, and other issues. On vacation, though, your usual instincts may be relaxed. Unfortunately, danger can be present even at what appears to be safe hotels and restaurants. Businesses that depend on customers have to provide a safe environment for visitors. Travelers are more vulnerable to accidents, crime, bad food, and dangerous situations, and they are owed more than the usual duty of care.

Hot Spots For Danger

Consider these dangerous hot spots that can result in visitors having anything but a relaxing trip:

  • Restaurants with poor outdoor lighting at night can contribute to trips and falls and can increase the danger of being robbed
  • Restaurants that allow food-borne illnesses to occur can cause illnesses
  • Theme parks that do not do a good job of screening employees can increase the chances of you and your family being taken advantage of, robbed, assaulted, and more.

They Owe You

Any and all businesses owe travelers a duty of care to ensure their safety. When that fails to happen, they may also owe those victims money damages. If it is a crime, then you can still take civil action against the business. You can be paid for several forms of damage, such as medical expenses, lost or damaged personal property, lost wages from a job, reimbursement of travel costs, pain and suffering, and more.

Take Action

To find out more about how much you can be paid and how to obtain those money damages, speak to a personal injury lawyer about your vacation issues. Do not wait for the issue to be forgotten, recorded over, or for it to disappear. Waiting can also run out the statute of limitations. If you were harmed, then you might be able to receive compensation for your injuries. Not only are you entitled to be paid for your losses but taking action could help protect others in the future.

Find a personal injury lawyer in your area, and reach out to learn more about how your case and how to move forward.
