Attorney Richard Levin of Levin, Riback Group offers simple tips for protecting yourself if you are injured while traveling.

  1. Document the incident – immediately. Take pictures of the surrounding areas and your injury.
  2. Get proper medical treatment. This step is easy to skip, as it distracts from the purpose of your travel, but it is crucial to see the doctor right away. Initial documentation is essential for serious injuries, and any ensuing legal action.
  3. See your doctor once you return home. Keep documentation and monitor any issues that continue to arise, as well as issues that interfere with your normal daily activities.
  4. Speak to an attorney, if necessary. Injuries occurring in foreign countries can have shorter statute of limitations.

“All too often people don’t want to deal with the headache of documentation or treatment during their vacation and wait until they are home to report an incident,” says Levin. “However waiting too long to file a report can have detrimental consequences; it is imperative to move quickly because vacation vessels such as cruise ships operate on a different statute.”
