Car Accidents, Premises Liability And Beach Accidents
Tourists are often injured in car accidents while on vacation. They may also be injured in accidents on buses and airport or hotel shuttles. We have experience with all types of vehicle accidents in North Carolina.
Another common source of injury for tourists is premises liability. In these cases, unsafe property causes an accident or injury. Property owners are responsible for maintaining safe premises. Negligent and inadequate security such as insufficient lighting, broken locks, and defective or missing security systems can foster conditions that make it easy for criminals to prey on others. If a hotel does not have adequate security, guests may be victims of a robbery, physical assault or sexual assault.
Whether at Wilmington, Carolina, Wrightsville or Kure Beach, or on the Cape Fear River, boating and swimming are extremely popular with residents and tourists. The failure to mark deep water drop-offs, rip tides, swimming areas and boating lanes can cause boating accidents or drowning. Similarly, at lakes and rivers, a failure to mark undertows, deep water drop-offs, boating lanes and swimming areas may result in injury or wrongful death.

In addition, accidents at the beach may be caused by hazards on docks, piers, stairs, walkways and in restrooms or snack bars. Slip-and-fall accidents are common in these locations as well as at swimming pools.
If another party’s negligence caused your accident or injury, you may be able to get compensation.
