What are Common Types of Vacation Premises Liability Cases for Out-of-Towners?
Tourists should be able to enjoy the sights and experiences of a new city without having to fear for their safety. However, unfortunately, not all establishments follow the necessary procedures to keep their property safe for visitors. For example, hotels, restaurants and other businesses must perform routine maintenance to ensure floors, stairs, elevators and furniture are safe for use. Additionally, companies that rent vacation equipment must also maintain their machinery so that the equipment functions properly for tourists.
When any individual, property owner or company neglects reasonable safety precautions, then vacationers may suffer serious injuries. Some common types of vacation accidents include:
- Resort and Hotel Accidents. These include slip and falls, accidents caused by improper lighting and assaults due to security negligence.
- Swimming Pool Accidents. Diving accidents, drowning or slip and falls around the water can cause traumatic brain and spine injuries.
- Sidewalk and Parking Lot Accidents. Vacationers may be at risk for trips, slips and falls due to uneven concrete, assaults or robberies from poor security.
- Gym Accidents. These may include accidents caused by defective workout equipment like faulty hotel treadmills.
- Concert Events or Festival Accidents. Although East Tennessee is a popular destination for music festivals and other events, accidents may result from overcrowding or negligent security.
- Accidents on the Water. These types of accident include boat accidents, personal watercraft (jet ski) accidents, and parasailing or water ski injuries.
- Theme Park Accidents. Tennessee tourists may sustain injuries from faulty amusement park rides due to lack of maintenance or equipment failure. Improper ride instruction or falls from rides like roller coasters or zip lines may also cause injuries or wrongful death.
