Many families are heading for a vacation after being quarantined for months. The thoughts of nice weather, interesting sites, time with family and friends, and relaxation may be all-consuming. However, should you or a loved one be injured while you are on vacation, you may be facing problems such as unforeseen medical expenses, transportation problems, and increased costs, to name a few.

To limit frustration after an accident away from home, we suggest you do the following:
- Seek Medical Attention – It is important to seek immediate medical treatment even if you feel all right. Be sure to document medical issues. It may be crucial in any lawsuit. When you seek medical attention, it is important to not only document the visit but also to follow the physician's orders exactly as prescribed.
- Notify the Appropriate Person(s) of the Injury – When injured on private property, be sure to notify the owner. If you are injured while you are in or out of Florida, or in a foreign country, inform local authorities.
- Collect Information – As with an accident in your home state, be sure to get the names and contact information from those who are involved, or witness, the accident. You can use your cell phone to take scene photos, photos of the vehicles involved in the accident, and any injuries.
- Limit Discussion – Any discussion about the accident, including, but not limited to, who was at fault, can be used against you in future litigation.
