Who Is Responsible for Injuries Away From Home?

During the warmer months of the year, a lot of families make plans to travel. Unfortunately, it's inevitable that some people are going to get injured as the result of an accident. When that happens, who is responsible and what can the victims do? Let's talk about it. 

Common Vacation Injuries

There are several places where people can suffer from injuries while they're supposed to be taking it easy on vacation. For example: 

• Swimming pools – Any slips and falls or other injuries are the responsibility of the owner of the pool if it is proven that they were negligent. 

• Cruise ships – There are many possible injuries that can occur on a cruise ship. People can slip and fall on the deck, suffer from food poisoning, or get injured in many other ways. If this happens to you, the company may be liable. 

• Summer camps – The summer camp staff are responsible for keeping children safe while they're in their care. While accidents do happen, if one of your kids is injured at camp due to negligence, the owners may be responsible.
