Many different types of tourist accidents can occur when visiting Boston including:
- Car accidents. Driving in an unfamiliar city is always difficult and excessive traffic and aggressive drivers make driving in Boston especially challenging. If someone is careless and disobeys the rules of the road or otherwise behaves in an unsafe manner, this can cause a car accident- especially if you are simply focused on finding your way around. If the other party is at fault for the accident, then you may be able to file a personal injury claim for damages.
- Recreational accidents. There are many great attractions to visit in Boston, such as visiting the Samuel Adams Brewery, ice-skating in Boston Common, or taking a trip to Castle Island. Whenever you participate in any attraction, there is a danger if the premises isn't properly maintained or if there are dangerous conditions that you aren't adequately warned about. If you suffer a tourist injury at a Boston attraction, you may be able to hold the owner or attraction operator liable for your injuries.
- Negligent security. Premises owners are expected to make sure that their property is safe. This includes, in some cases, protecting you from dangers caused by third parties. If an owner knows that there are risks and doesn't do something to minimize or prevent those risks, the property owner can be responsible. For instance, sporting events can get pretty wild and competitive. If there is insufficient security and you get hurt as a result of over-aggressive or boisterous fans, you could potentially hold the stadium responsible.
These are just a few examples of the different types of tourist accidents that may occur when you visit the Boston area. Similar dangers exist at tourist attractions throughout the state of Massachusetts. In any situation where you are hurt through the negligence of someone else or through a wrongful breach of duty or violation of the law, you can potentially make a claim for personal injury.
