We recently discussed some tips that can help to keep you safe as you travel. Whether you are a Florida resident who is traveling within the state or a visitor from another state, you have the right to remain safe as you travel. Even if you are very careful and follow the tips we gave you in our previous blog post, there is a chance that the actions of another person will cause you to be involved in an accident that leads to injury.
The World Health Organization states that injuries are a leading cause of traveler deaths, but they are also usually preventable with a proper amount of care on the part of travelers and providers. Road and traffic injuries are the top cause of injury and fatalities for travelers, but other common injuries and deaths are related to drowning, air accidents, terrorist activity and drug use. According to WHO statistics, both homicide and suicide are top three causes of death among U.S. travelers throughout the world.
