Watch Out for These Common Spring Break Injuries

Watch Out for These Common Spring Break Injuries

Spring break is a notoriously rowdy – if not dangerous – vacation. Whether you’re traveling or staying home for spring break, stay safe by avoiding these common injuries and accidents:

  • Drunk Driving Accidents
    Most college students don’t celebrate spring break without drinking. While spring break is a great time to relax and have fun, reckless drinking can lead to DUIs. If you plan to drink at a party, make sure you have a safe way to get home, such as a designated driver. If you’re driving, especially at night, pay extra attention to other drivers; the chances of encountering a drunk driver on the road are higher during spring break.
  • Sporting Events & Stadiums
    If you plan to attend a sporting event this spring break, know your rights before you enter the stadium. Some tickets include a liability waiver, which could prevent you from seeking compensation for an unjust injury. If you did not assume the risk of an injury by purchasing a ticket, you may be able to seek financial compensation for injuries caused by premises liability or other forms of negligence.
  • “Social Host” Injuries
    House parties might seem like one of the safer spring break celebration options, but these venues are not immune to accidents and injuries. Under common law, party hosts may be held accountable for guest injuries, in special cases. This is called “social host liability,” and often applies to DUI accidents where the social host is held accountable for the car accident and subsequent damages.
