How Can We Help?

What to do after suffering an injury while on vacation?

Each year, more than 50 million people visit New York City. In the last few years, tourism has continued to grow, with the big apple hosting a record number of visitors in 2018.

These tourists add a significant amount of traffic to the city. Unfortunately, every year some of these visitors suffer an injury during their trip. If you are hurt while visiting from out of state, you may be wondering what you should do.

Not a citizen, not a problem

Although you may not be a citizen of the New York commonwealth, you still have the same rights as anyone else in the state. If you believe a third party was responsible for your injury, you may be able to seek compensation for any damages you’ve suffered.

After obtaining any immediate medical attention you require, you should contact a New York lawyer who has experience with tourist accidents.

Will I need to return to the state?

If you are just visiting NYC, chances are you don’t want to have to return to the city for a hearing. The good news is, that your lawyer can represent you for most of the court proceedings without you.

A lawyer can also discuss the details of your case over the phone, so you do not need to be in the state to start the process of filing a claim.

No matter where or how it happens, sustaining an injury can cost you unexpected medical bills, missed work time as well as pain and suffering.

If a third party is at fault for the injury, you can still hold them accountable regardless of where you’re from.
