Be better prepared for injuries on vacation

Vacations are a lot of fun, but there is always a potential for you to get hurt. Unfortunately, an injury can ruin your good time, and it could impact your future.

There are some vacation accidents that are more likely than others, like car crashes with tourists, bus crashes on tours or boating accidents at sea. If you are hurt, you need to know that you can seek medical care no matter where you are.

How can you prepare for an injury while on vacation?

The first thing to do is to make sure you have travel insurance. Even though the likelihood is that an injury caused by another person would be covered by their insurance, you need to make sure you are covered if they don't have insurance.

Another thing to do is to make sure your vehicle is in good condition before you take it on vacation. If it breaks down or you blow a tire, you need to know how to get back on the road. Many people are injured when distracted drivers don't notice them and cause secondary crashes. If you do end up on the side of the road, stay in your car, buckled up, unless you're changing a tire or far enough from the road to be safe.

A third thing to do to be better prepared for injuries on vacation is to carry your health insurance card and a card with your information on it on hand. By having copies, it's easier to provide those to insurers, police officers or others who might be at the scene of an accident and need your information.

Finally, get to know your routes. If you're biking, walking, running or traveling in any way, you need to have a good idea about where you're headed and the hazards that might be present. Talk to locals, ask for advice about safe travel routes and don't be afraid to pull over or wait for assistance if you're not confident for any reason. It's better to take your time to get to your destination than to make errors that result in a crash, pedestrian accident or other incident.

Vacation is supposed to be a fun time with family and friends, but it can result in some harmful injuries. Fortunately, good preparation can make it easier to handle unexpected events on vacation, so you can get back to your normal life as quickly as possible.
