Whether you are a college student looking to party with your friends or a parent planning a road trip with your family, spring break is the time of year everyone looks forward to. Many people flock to amusement parks, beaches, mountains, and other exciting landmarks throughout the country. As you can imagine, the influx of travelers and partygoers increases the risk of injury or accident. Most vacations pose some kind of risk and spring break is no different--in fact, it carries unique hazards for both children and adults.
If you are participating in any spring break activities this year, make sure you watch out for the following potential accidents or hazards:
- Swimming pool injuries – When you travel with children, they are probably most excited about enjoying the hotel pool. Running alongside a slick pool edge is the prime opportunity for a slip and fall accident which leads to broken bones, head or back injuries, etc. Drowning is also something parents should be concerned about even if there is a hotel lifeguard present.
- Theme park injuries – Rollercoasters are safe and fun if they are maintained and managed properly; with the overwhelming number of visitors, theme park employees may grow negligent. There is also always the potential of a malfunctioning ride, negligent security measures, and other dangerous possibilities.
- Car accidents – The increase of travelers means a flood of drivers on the road, many of which are unfamiliar with the surrounding area and its traffic laws. Unfortunately, accidents, injuries, and fatalities become even more common during this time.
