British in Orlando Car Accidents

Auto and Lorry Accidents Involving British Tourists in Orlando

The Florida Department of Tourism recently reported that over 50 million travelers land in central Florida each year, making Orlando one of the top destinations in the world. People come from a diverse range of countries; English and Scottish travelers, in particular, are fond of Florida’s theme parks, shopping attractions, and tropical climate. Over 1.2 million British travelers visit annually to spend their holiday at Disney World and other amusement parks, relaxing on the beach, and participating in other activities.

Many foreign travelers enjoy commuting in a rental car. Unfortunately, renting a vehicle puts them at risk for experiencing a car accident or a truck or lorry accident in a country whose laws may be unknown to them. This presents a unique challenge to travelers who could benefit from the aid of an Orlando car accident lawyer who has handled many cases involving tourists from the UK.

Lorry or Auto Accidents in Florida

Whether in Florida for the first or one-hundredth time, Brits take pleasure in renting a vehicle during their stay in Orlando. Unfortunately, English, Scottish, Welsh, and Irish travelers may be more prone to becoming involved in automobile accidents because they may be unfamiliar with the vehicle, the rules of the road, or local driving conditions. When an auto accident is no fault of your own, it’s important to realize that you may be entitled to damages regardless of your nationality.

If you have recently been involved in a car or lorry accident in Orlando and you are from out of town, there are steps you should take as soon as possible to mitigate the harmful effects of the crash and maximize your potential to recover compensation.

  • Stop and protect the accident scene
  • Call the police to report the accident
  • Call your rental car company to report the accident
  • Exchange information with the other drivers involved
  • Photograph the accident scene and any injuries you suffered
  • Seek medical care
  • Consult an Orlando car accident attorney to protect your rights

Taking action urgently will help you establish a strong personal injury case. An experienced attorney will investigate all the facts of your case in the quest for a just settlement.

Don’t Dismiss an Injury

It’s understandable that if you have suffered a severe injury in the U.S. while traveling, you would want to resolve the matter as quickly as possible so that you may recover in the comfort of your home. However, it’s important to receive prompt medical care and engage an Orlando-based lawyer soon after your accident. More serious problems may arise if you neglect treatment. A consultation with a physician in Orlando will allow your information to be documented so that it may be used as evidence when it comes time to file a claim.
