As the weather warms up and people seek to leave town for a few days, a great vacation can sometimes be ruined by the reckless and negligent actions of other individuals that can cause serious or even permanent injury. Here are some of the common causes of injuries during summer vacations:

(1) Car Crashes - The nice long road trip that you had planned may be cut short due to a car crash which is unfortunately a common occurrence for many vacationers. You should make sure that your rental car does not have any mechanical problems and you should avoid driving in areas with bad road conditions, poor lighting, inadequate road signs or minimal DUI enforcement.

(2) Train or Bus Crashes - Public transportation, such as trains and buses, is often utilized by many travelers as a more relaxing and inexpensive option. You should research the travel company that you plan to use to transport you to your desired destination to ensure that their drivers have good safety reviews and there have not been any crashes by any of their bus drivers or train engineers.

(3) Boating Accidents - Many people flock to the lake or river for boating activities. You should make sure that your boat captain is certified under the local and state safety laws, especially if you plan to partake in water-skiing, wake-boarding or swimming. You should always check how deep the water is before diving and make sure that you are not swimming in an area that is heavily-traversed by motor boats.

(4) Hotel Accidents - Make sure to research the hotels where you will stay during your vacation. Hotel owners may fail to fix defective conditions such as uneven carpets, broken grills, or faulty swimming pools. Hotel owners may also employ a poorly-trained staff that may not be ineffective at reducing the risk of injury or may increase the risk of injury to their guests.

(5) Trucking Crashes - More and more trucks will be on the interstate highways transporting cargo to various cities across the country. Truck drivers may not adhere to safety regulations limiting the amount of hours they can drive consecutively. Cargo may also not be properly secured to the trucks. You should keep a lookout for trucks while driving to your vacation destination.

At the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid, we hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable family vacation. If you or a family member is injured while on vacation due to the negligence or reckless behavior of another, we are ready to fight on your behalf.
