Tucson Snowbird Accident Attorneys
Tucson, Arizona is home to some fantastic weather and spectacular tourist attractions. There are plenty of sights to see including the Saguaro National Park and the Sabino Canyon, as well as enjoying delicious cuisine and a cultural atmosphere.
It is for these reasons, among many more, that snowbirds flock to Tucson in order to trade the colder climates in their hometown for a warmer one. Leading the snowbird lifestyle is a very desirable way of life, for the most part, however, accidents can occur during the time that you are away from home.
When complications arise, it can sometimes be difficult to comprehend the situation from a legal standpoint being away from home. Because you are in Arizona, their laws and rules surrounding personal injury will apply.
If you are a snowbird in Tucson and have found yourself in a situation that requires professional advice, contact The Husband & Wife Law Team to discuss your options.
Many of these accidents can occur in your hometown too, and many involve motor vehicle-related accidents, golf-related accidents or home accidents. Often, these accidents arise out of being in an unfamiliar location and therefore, having a lack of awareness of the surrounding environment and conditions. If you are in a car accident, for example, it may be because you are a snowbird who may not be confident in driving in a new place and could cause an accident as a result.
Alternatively, the usual reasons for accidents on the roads such as fatigue, distractions and driving under the influence are factors that influence poor driving all over the world.
Golf cart accidents are also a common cause of personal injury for snowbirds and in Arizona, you must have a driver's license, registration and insurance coverage. Golf carts are not permitted to drive as fast as cars, but they can still cause damage to individuals who are involved in accidents. If you’ve been struck by a golf cart or have sustained injuries due to a defective vehicle, there is a likelihood you are eligible to be compensated.
Rental properties are another location whereby snowbirds can be injured. There are laws in Arizona that instill rental home requirements and standards that make the home safe for families to live in. If someone is hurt as a result of the property not meeting these standards out of negligence, you could receive economic damages for your loss.
Car accidents and golf cart accidents typically result in severe injuries such as broken bones, lacerations, bruising, or head injuries in serious cases.
Injuries related to rental properties may include broken bones due to substandard flooring, lack of fire safety equipment resulting in house fires, severe burns, or death, and anything else of danger in the home which results in personal injury.
You may also experience psychological trauma from these accidents, or poor mental health as a result of no longer being able to participate in life as you usually would.
To determine whether someone was negligent, it needs to be proven that the personal injury occurred by a breach of legal duty. Depending on what kind of personal injuries you have sustained as a result of negligence, the firm will assign a proficient lawyer to your case who will consult with you about the details of the accident and liability.
If you’re a snowbird who has been living out of state in Tucson and has suffered from personal injury, it can be an overwhelming process to handle alone. A skilled personal injury lawyer is experienced at what they do and therefore is more likely to know how to handle your case to reach the desired outcome. Because it can be a long process, especially if you are recovering from a severe injury, knowing you have a great lawyer by your side is paramount.
