Tourists Rights In New York After an Accident

Tourist Accidents Grand Central New YorkNew York City is a Mecca for world travelers. You can see it when you get on the subways in the city. You see tourists. You hear different languages. That is one of the beautiful things about New York. It’s not only Americans from every corner of the country who come to New York City, but also people who travel to New York from all around the world.

Tourists need to be aware that they don’t need to live in New York to be entitled to file a lawsuit after an accident. Serious injuries are a serious business that needs professional help. Accident victims, regardless of whether they are New York residents or even US citizens, are entitled to seek compensation against the responsible party that caused their accident.

Injured Tourists Have Rights Too!

Visiting New York can be an experience of a lifetime. In fact, each year, millions of tourists and business visitors journey to New York City. However, with almost 8.5 million residents spanning the Big Apple, the city can become suffocating, especially after an injury.

Surrounded by unfamiliar faces and with only a hotel as a room for refuge, injured visitors may want nothing more than to go back home. However, if they are seriously hurt, dealing with an unfamiliar medical system can be more than a burden.

It is important that as a tourist you understand that you don’t need to be from New York to file a civil lawsuit here. You may not even consider filing a suit in New York when you work and live elsewhere. However, bringing a legal claim against the people who caused your injury may be the best way to ensure a full medical recovery. It is your right, regardless of whether you are from New York or from anywhere else around the world.

Amy L.
A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
