Injured While on Vacation in Florida?

Orlando Personal Injury Lawyer

Florida’s miles of pristine beaches, family-friendly theme parks, acres of shopping malls, and natural wonders attract millions of tourists each year. Unfortunately, hundreds of tourists and travelers suffer injuries while they are traveling due to a variety of causes.

Travelers may get hurt in car accidents, public transportation accidents, negligence on the premises of popular tourist destinations, security failures, criminal assault, and more. These accidents can instantly drain a vacation of any joy and cause significant obstacles for those who are suffering and their families. Tourists who get hurt in Florida would do well to secure a personal injury lawyer in Orlando who has unique experience helping those from abroad.

Tourist Injury Lawsuit Challenges

Whether you have been hurt at a hotel or other lodging, theme park, water park, state park, popular beach, restaurant, national or historic monument, shopping mall, or other destination, you should secure medical attention right away. Then, seek legal counsel.

An injury provoked by the negligence or recklessness of a third-party deserves the representation of an experienced personal injury attorney. At The Umansky Law Firm, we understand that your priority is returning home with your family and getting back to your life. A personal injury or wrongful death case can present several challenges for travelers and tourists attempting to bring such cases in a place they do not live:

  • In most cases, you need to work with a lawyer in the state in which you were injured in order to bring a legal case to court in that state.
  • The laws in Florida may not be the same as the laws in your home state or country so you need an attorney who understands and can explain the local laws. If your case is likely to go to court, it’s always advantageous to work with a lawyer who knows how local judges and juries operate.
  • Seriously injured people want and need the comfort of home and family as they work toward recovery.

Construction Worker Injury Case

The Umansky Law Firm took the case of a young father who was a construction worker injured while on the job. Our client’s injury was sustained while constructing a new home in an up and coming subdivision. After an investigation, the lawyers at the Umansky Law Firm determined that the construction company had failed to install a barricade on the second floor of the new home to keep the workers safe. Due to this negligence, our client fell and sustained severe injuries. Our client fractured his leg and had to undergo two surgeries due to the accident. As a result of the operations, our client — the family’s primary wage earner — missed several months of work. The Umansky Law Firm demanded that the named defendants take responsibility for their negligence, but they refused. As a result, we filed suit and vigorously pursued a claim against their insurance coverage and successfully reached a six-figure settlement.
