Scottsdale Snowbird Accident Attorneys

You may have been harmed by someone’s negligent actions, such as an intoxicated driver who collided with your vehicle or a hotel owner who failed to address hazardous conditions where you were staying. But now your vacation is ending. and you don’t know where to turn for help.

The most common type of snowbird injuries comes from automobile collisions. Arizona is an at-fault state, which means the driver who caused the crash will be held responsible for the damages and losses you suffer.
It’s possible that the person who ran into you is also from another state, and that could make things even more complicated. But the experienced litigators at The Husband & Wife Law Team have been dealing with these types of cases for years, and we know just what to do.
We can hold people responsible for a Scottsdale car crash no matter where they go, even if they live in another country.

- Surveillance camera video
- Expert testimony
- Computer-generated accident scene re-creations
Snowbirds tend to be pretty active people. They like to go to restaurants, visit local landmarks, and enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling, camping, and golfing. This creates more opportunities to come into contact with careless people whose actions may cause you harm.
Owners and managers of hotels, rental property, and other places where visitors may be staying have a responsibility to survey their property on a regular basis and remove hazards. For example, obstructions in walkways that could cause a fall and sharp objects that could cut people must be eliminated.
Other hazardous property issues, such as loose railings on balconies should be fixed. Anti-slip mats can be used to create traction on shower floors and sliding glass doors must be marked with stickers, so people don’t walk into them.
Golf course owners will want to make sure golf carts are well-maintained, and there are safe and even surfaces to operate them.
Places where vacationers are likely to experience an accident include:
- RV and motor home parks
- Hotels and motels
- Golf courses
