It’s just about that time of year. The cold months are creeping back into the darkness and spring break is right around the corner. While many of us hit the road for a week getaway during spring break with expectations of happy and fun times, injuries occur. As your Atlanta Spring Break injury and premises liability attorneys, Hinton & Powell wants to make sure you and your rights are protected so you can make the most out of your spring break this year.
We all know how spring break goes; You head to the beach or a resort and many times, find the biggest and most popular bars and venues hosting the largest parties of the week. Most of the time, it’s all fun, but sometimes injuries occur.
Many times, when injuries do occur, the event host or owner of the venue could be held responsible. This is what is known as premises liability. The law is a bit different for parties held at an individual owner’s pool or home, but you still have rights. Public hosts have many things that need to be up to par before throwing a party, such a licenses, inspections, and general maintenance that ensure a safe and fun environment. This is where the experience of Hinton & Powell can help.
As much as spring break is about getting away and relaxing in the sun on the sand and in the waters, alcohol is often involved. This is where you have to take matters into your own hands and protect yourself. Unfortunately, many a drunk driving accident can occur on spring break.
Were you at fault or even worse a victim of a drunk driver? In every one of these cases it is important to know your rights and responsibilities, and what you may be entitled to if you are a victim.
Cruises, trips to foreign countries, the sandy shores of Florida; plenty of us travel out of our own home state for some spring break fun. Just because you travel out of state doesn’t mean you don’t have rights. Every state, and country for that matter, has different laws when it comes to personal injury and liability, so it may be a bit more difficult, but you are still legally protected. Sometimes, you may have to find an attorney where the incident occurred. But the bottom line is negligence is negligence, and if you are injured at someone else’s expense, you deserve fair and just compensation.
Spring Break should always be an enjoyable time, but accidents are bound to happen. Especially during Spring Break when outside forces like big parties, pools, alcohol and travel are concerned. The experienced Atlanta Spring Break injury attorneys at Hinton and Powell want to make sure you not only know your rights if you suffer an injury, but that you are protected every step of the way.
