If you are a Tennessee native, you probably have encountered a few tourists around your neighborhood or city, especially during the summer. Whether it’s at the Great Smoky Mountains, Chattanooga, or Johnson City, tourists will flock and gather at these tourist attractions for summer vacation. If you are planning on visiting Tennessee in the near future, or you are hosting family or friends in the state, it’s important that you know what to do if you are injured during your stay.
Where Can I Get Hurt as a Tourist in Tennessee?
As a tourist in the state, you should be aware of the different locations that you or a loved one could get injured in. Resorts and hotels, swimming pools and water parks, sidewalks, busy parking lots, gyms, concerts, festivals, and theme parks are some of the most common places in Tennessee that face the most tourist injuries. If you are injured on someone else’s property in a different state, you can file for a premises liability lawsuit if you can prove that the owner of the property was negligent. Before flying or driving home, make sure that you gather all the necessary evidence that you’ll need for your case to be successful. This evidence could include:
- Descriptive information about where you were injured and about the property/location itself
- Identification from the property owner or any relevant insurance information
- Documentation that states Tennessee’s state premises liability laws
Our premises liability attorneys will help you gather this evidence and documentation in order to have the best chance at winning your personal injury lawsuit. Getting injured on vacation can put a damper on everyone’s mood, but thankfully Tennessee offers tourists options on how they can recover financially. Contact the law office of Stanley A.
