New York City is one of the top destinations for tourists visiting the United States, and it’s easy to see why. With countless attractions, museums, parks, restaurants, and Broadway shows, our city provides people with a unique experience like no other.
While you certainly will not get bored here, you do have a higher chance of getting hurt. Why? New York City is home to so many people and is a destination for so many visitors due to its attractions and sightseeing opportunities. In such a busy city you’re more likely to be hit by chaotic traffic, drivers, bikers, and other pedestrians.
While on vacation, most of us dream of relaxation, good food, and an abundance of fun. Being injured, seeking medical attention, and worrying about paying the bills is the last thing you want to think about. You’re also completely out of your element, in a city you’ve never been to before, and you might be unsure of what to do. Do you seek medical attention? Do you go back home? Do you call a lawyer?
Of course you should get medical treatment, and we also recommend you call a lawyer right away! Even if you don’t hire the attorney, he or she will be able to provide good advice for your situation, and most personal injury attorneys offer a free consultation.
The most common injuries we witness in tourists are bike, bus, and car-related accidents. We’ve also had clients who have suffered in boating accidents, from food poisoning, and from dangerous trip-and-falls.
As a visitor, it’s important for you to know that you have the same rights to bring a lawsuit regardless if you are a New York resident or undocumented immigrant. Don’t let something like a language barrier prevent you from receiving compensation if you’ve sustained an injury due to someone else’s negligence.
Is there anything worse than getting injured on vacation when you were supposed to have fun and relax?
If you’re a tourist who happens to be injured while visiting the Big Apple, you can claim compensation for medical costs, pain and suffering, as well as lost income. If you’re worried about having to travel back and forth in regard to your claim, rest assured that our team can handle most cases without you having to appear in court.
