Attorneys Assisting With Tourist Accidents in St. Croix, St. Thomas, and St. John

The Virgin Islands are a beautiful place to visit, but nothing disrupts a vacation like a serious accident that results in injuries and other types of financial damages. Unfortunately, a tourist who is injured in an accident may be unsure of their legal options for pursuing a personal injury claim when they live elsewhere in the United States. When addressing injuries caused by someone's negligence, it is essential to work with an experienced attorney.

At Colianni & Leonard LLC, we have practiced law in the U.S. Virgin Islands for over 50 years. We have successfully represented tourists in a wide variety of injury cases, and we understand the difficulties faced by those who are injured while traveling. When pursuing a lawsuit on your behalf, we can work with you over the phone or via email, ensuring that you are able to recover the compensation you deserve, no matter where you are located.

Tourist Injuries in the Virgin Islands

If your vacation is ruined by a serious injury, you may be uncertain about where to turn for help. In addition to concerns about receiving the proper medical care, you may be unsure about arrangements for safe travel back to your home. Depending on the seriousness of your injury, ongoing treatment may be required, and you may be unable to return to work while you are recovering. While addressing these practical concerns about the impact your injury will have on your life, you need the help of an attorney who can help you establish liability and pursue financial compensation from the party or parties who were responsible.

We are prepared to assist with a wide variety of tourist injuries, including:

  • Tourist car accidents - Driving in the Virgin Islands can be difficult for visitors, since cars drive on the left side of the road. Even when taking extra care to drive safely in unfamiliar conditions, dangerous motor vehicle accidents can occur because of driver negligence, drunk driving, distracted driving, poorly maintained roads, or improper vehicle maintenance.
  • Tourist boating accidents - Injuries can occur on cruise ships, ferries, fishing boats, rental boats, or other vessels due to negligent operation, intoxication, improper training, or equipment malfunctions. In addition to the risk of drowning in a boat accident, a person who is struck by a boat or comes into contact with a propeller can suffer serious bodily harm, disfigurement, and disability.
  • Tourist slip and fall accidents - Wet floors and surfaces around swimming pools, beaches, or marinas can cause serious fall injuries such as broken bones and dislocated joints. Falls may also occur if structures such as decks, balconies, or docks collapse.
  • Tourist hotel accidents - Tourists may be injured while staying at a hotel because of improperly maintained swimming pools or hot tubs, malfunctioning elevators, faulty wiring, improper lighting, or inadequate security.
  • Defective products - When a product is improperly designed or maintained, it can cause serious injuries. Tourists may be injured by defects in cars, boats, ATVs, jet skis, life preservers, or equipment used for fishing, parasailing, water skiing, scuba diving, or snorkeling.
