It can be especially challenging to be hurt while you are traveling, but Recovery Law Center is here for you. We want our clients to recover in every way that they can. That means serving tourists and visitors in legal claims and focusing intently on pursuing your rights.
Types of tourism and travel accidents
Injuries can happen in many ways while on vacation. Here are some common tourist injuries:
- Car accidents, all-terrain vehicle (ATV) crashes
- Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
- Airplane and aviation crashes
- Slip and falls in a hotel, on a cruise ship or in a recreational setting
- Toxic chemical exposure whether it is in a hotel room, on a cruise ship or somewhere else
- Injuries from fire
- Animal attacks
- Recreation accidents on land and water
- Boating injuries including cruise ships, yachts and public boat tours
- Pool injuries
- Illness and disease from poor sanitation in hotels, rental homes and cruise ships

When you go on a vacation, you expect to enjoy the trip. You don’t expect to be suddenly injured. A serious injury can completely disrupt the trip, and you may have a long road to recovery ahead.
An injury can impact all areas of your life. You may be struggling with pain, emotional stress and financial hardship. You may be able to receive a monetary payment if someone else is legally responsible for the accident.

Understanding legal issues in tourist injury claims
When an injury happens, the victim struggles in many ways. They have physical pain, emotional stress and financial hardships.
It can be especially hard when the injury occurs away from home. There are some special issues and questions that may be present when a claim involves someone on vacation. We can address these issues, including:
- Jurisdiction and forum questions for filing the case
- State, federal and international law that may apply
- Liability waivers, arbitration clauses and other attempts to limit liability
- Claims against hospitality companies and tourist organizations
- Evidence gathering when the victim lives somewhere else
- Difficulty contacting witnesses who may also be tourists and visitors
- Claims involving travel insurance
Hospitality companies often claim exemption from liability. They may respond with allegations of your own recklessness or misconduct. Our lawyers know how to overcome these challenges.
Differences in Hawaii personal injury claims
It’s always best to contact Recovery Law Center as soon as possible following an accident. The rules and procedures may be different in Hawaii than in your state or country. For example, there are time limits for how long you have to file a claim. These limits vary between states. There are also procedural and evidence rules that may be different than they are in your location.
Our legal professionals know the laws in Hawaii. We will tailor our representation to meet your needs.
