Each year, tens of millions of tourists travel to Miami, Hollywood, and the rest of South Florida. In fact, the state saw 87.3 million people arrive as tourists in 2011 alone. In addition to tourists, snowbirds are people who decide to purchase a second home or vacation home in Florida to take advantage of the warm weather during the winter months. Each year, millions of people arrive in Florida during the winter months from the Northeast United States and from Canada. They stay a few months before returning home.

For most snowbirds and tourists, Hollywood and the rest of South Florida provide a temporary and exciting place to visit or stay. Unfortunately, some visitors each year are injured on visits to Florida. A serious injury can affect your stay, leave you with high medical bills, and cause confusion and concern. If you’ve been injured in Florida but aren’t from the state, what can you do?

In fact, many families take advantage of the lower prices and slightly smaller crowds as well as the warm Florida weather to visit during the first few weeks of September – before school picks up. While most will leave with nothing but selfies and great memories, unfortunately some may be injured.
