Everyone deserves a break from normality from time to time. That’s why so many of us book extended periods of time away from work, head abroad and soak up some much needed sun.
Sadly, not all of us experience the holiday full of rest and relaxation that we’re expecting and instead find ourselves holed up in our hotel rooms, suffering with sunburn and heatstroke or in some cases, spending more time in the local hospital than on the local beaches.
So, what are the most common accidents people get on holiday? Read on to find out more.
Bus and coach accidents
Travelling via coach is a cost-effective and convenient way to travel around your destination or even get yourself from the airport to your hotel. Sadly, not all bus and coach journeys end well and many people find themselves caught up in dangerous road accidents that they have little control over. Discover Coral Springs bus accident lawyer, if you’ve been in a bus accident. Injuries sustained in a bus or coach crash can vary from cuts and lacerations to broken bones and even brain injuries – either way, you’re going to spend a lot of your holiday in the hospital dealing with the aftermath.
If you’re not used to intense periods of heat and sunshine, then you might find yourself suffering from sunburn, heatstroke or even dehydration. It’s a common issue amongst holidaymakers who don’t prepare themselves for the change in the climate. Extreme sunburn can leave you struggling to move and unable to enjoy your holiday, whilst heatstroke and dehydration can leave you needing hospital treatment.
Trying new activities and pushing yourself out of your comfort zone is what many tourists centre their holiday around. Water sports, scuba diving, bungee jumping, ziplining, even hiking up mountains or spotting wildlife. Injuries are more likely if the staff aren’t professionally trained or if the equipment is poor or non-existent, the company isn’t registered or insured and if there appears to be no safety procedures in place.
Much like trying new activities, many of us hope to enjoy new cuisine whilst on holiday. After all, it’s all part of the experience. On the other hand, those of us who prefer to stick with dishes we’re familiar with aren’t exempt from the risk of food poisoning. Eating undercooked food, consuming water or ice from an unsanitary source, poor food hygiene practices, or even eating with contaminated utensils are just some of the causes behind food poisoning abroad.
Have you ever been involved in an accident whilst on holiday? How did you handle it? If the accident happened recently, consider reaching out to a personal injury lawyer.
