Injured while on Vacation, Where Do I Get an Attorney?
Florida is one of the top destinations for vacationers throughout the nation – and the world. St. Petersburg’s beautiful beaches are difficult to beat, and there is no shortage of fun to be had. With all this tourist traffic and action, however, come accidents. If you’re injured by someone else’s negligence while vacationing in Florida, you need a dedicated St. Petersburg personal injury attorney who is well acquainted with the ins and outs of the state’s laws and who is well-positioned to skillfully advocate for your rights and rightful compensation within Florida’s personal injury system, including after you’ve returned to your home state.
Your First Steps Forward
If you are injured by someone else’s negligence, there are some early steps you should take in order to help protect both your health and your personal injury claim, including:
- Call 911
- Accept emergency treatment at the scene of the accident, and if it is not available, obtain medical attention as soon after the accident as possible
- Carefully follow your medical team’s instructions and retain all of your medical reports and bills
- Do not travel back to your home state until the doctor attending to your care gives you the go-ahead
- Consult with an experienced St. Pete personal injury attorney
Ultimately, you need to take care of your health and well-being, which means obtaining the medical care you need, following up with ongoing care, and generally tending to your recovery. This approach, however, also helps bolster your personal injury claim – because if you don’t take your injuries seriously, you can rest assured that the involved insurance company will follow your lead by also declining to take them seriously.
Once You’ve Returned Home
Returning home after filing a claim in Florida need not be as daunting as you may think. In fact, you can look no further than your dedicated Florida personal injury attorney to skillfully guide your claim forward – in defense of your rights and in pursuit of your just compensation. Your attorney has the skill, legal insight, and drive to get the job done remotely on your behalf. This means that you don’t have to worry about returning home and not having solid legal representation on your side. While you go about the important work of recovering from your injuries, you can rest assured that your Florida personal injury attorney is on the job.
