Tourists should watch out for these common vacation hazards

Florida is a beautiful place, and it is no wonder why countless tourists flock to the state every year to enjoy the fun and sun. There are risks that every visitor and resident alike should be aware of, though. Opportunities for injury exist everywhere, but there are many that are specific to Florida and tourists visiting the area. Being aware and staying safe are two of your best defenses against some of these hazards.

Can a lifeguard be sued for personal injury or wrongful death?

While Florida beaches are packed with people who enjoy the sun, lifeguards are responsible for preventing drownings. As with others whose jobs require them to be specially trained to save lives and treat injuries, lifeguards are held to a high standard of care. When a lifeguard causes personal injury or fails to prevent an injury, the victim might have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Workers' compensation: Industrial accident kills Disney employee

Regardless of how careful workers are, accidents will happen. Unfortunately, lives are sometimes lost, as is evident in the number of workers' compensation survivors' benefits claims filed in Florida every year. One such tragic workplace accident occurred at Disney's Pop Century Resort in Lake Buena Vista on a recent Monday.

Age-related factors that could lead to personal injury claims

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says more than 36 million senior citizens are licensed to drive, many of them in Florida. There is no getting away from the fact that certain aspects of aging make driving a personal injury threat. Recognizing that it is time to give up driving is never easy because no one wants to become dependent on others to drive them where they need to be.

Many workers' compensation benefits claims follow fall accidents

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration runs regional emphasis programs throughout the year. They use these programs to focus on certain employee safety issues by carrying out random inspections to check compliance with safety regulations. As part of the Regional Emphasis Program for Falls in Construction, an investigation at a Florida roofing company led to a significant fine. Thousands of dollars are paid out for workers' compensation benefits claims of fall victims every year.
