Spring break is now in full swing and as usual, Fort Lauderdale is a hot destination for family vacations and college spring break trips. Local 10 News has reported that the city has taken some precautions to keep Fort Lauderdale residents and visiting spring breakers safe, such as temporary barricades along State Road A1A to keep pedestrians from walking into traffic and keeping electric scooters off of the beach this spring.

Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorneys applaud the spring break safety efforts made by the city, but they know that spring break injuries are still going to happen because they receive numerous phone calls from people injured in spring break accidents every single year.

Common spring break injuries

  • Cruise ship injuries

Car accidents related to heavy spring break traffic, visitor drivers who do not know their way around, and overworked rideshare drivers who are fatigued are just a few reasons that car accidents occur on Fort Lauderdale roads during spring break.

  • Boating accidents

Recreational boating is a way of life in Fort Lauderdale and during spring break, recreational boat traffic picks up as well. Inexperienced boaters, alcohol consumption, and speeding drivers are frequent contributing factors in spring break boating accidents.

  • Parasailing injuries

Parasailing is a favorite spring break activity and it often leads to injuries due to dangerous weather conditions, boat driver error, and safety and maintenance regulation violations.

Dangerous property conditions at crowded spring break hotels, clubs, and other venues often lead to serious injuries. Property dangers such as poorly monitored or maintained pools, negligent security, and fire code violations are just a few examples of dangerous property conditions that may exist at popular spring break locations.

  • Alcohol related accidents

Alcohol flows freely at many spring break hotspots and drinking often leads to poor decisions, accidents, and resulting injuries.

Pedestrian and bicycle accidents are very common due to a number of factors including smartphone distractions, alcohol, failing to following traffic signs and signals, and heavy traffic.

  • Sightseeing activity accidents

Sightseeing activities such as airboats, sailing charters, water taxis, watercrafts, Segways, and party bikes can lead to injuries, especially when equipment is poorly maintained, tour operators are not properly trained, and when alcohol is involved.

Injuries and damages

When spring break accidents happen, resulting injuries and damages can be serious including medical expenses, future medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain and suffering, and property damage. If you or a loved one has sustained spring break injuries as a visitor or resident of Fort Lauderdale, contact a Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorney at Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates, P.A. to schedule a consultation. If a property owner’s negligence or someone else’s wrongful conduct caused your injuries, you deserve to be fully and fairly compensated and they deserve to be held accountable.
