I was injured while away on vacation. What do I do?

Return to FAQ Videos


Being injured in any time is a bummer. Being injured while on vacation is an extra bummer. What you want to look at is whether or not you purchased travelers insurance and seeing what that particular policy says, that’s very important because generally, the state or the country where you were injured controls. What you want to do, first and foremost is go ahead and get the medical treatment that you need. While you’re there, try to get and keep all medical records that you possibly can so that you can return that with you. You want to take photographs of the scene, of the area where you were injured. You want to keep records of whom you spoke with. You want to file an incident report if you’re able to do so.

When you return home, continue with your medical care and contact the lawyer as soon as you can. Try to find one who is allowed to practice in the jurisdiction where you’re harmed or go to your lawyer and have him or her help you find a lawyer for you who can practice in that particular jurisdiction.
