As we enter spring, many Americans are planning and taking vacations for themselves and their families. While vacations should be a time for relaxation and enjoyment, sometimes unexpected events may occur to put a damper on the trip. One such stressful event is the occurrence of an accident at a hotel that causes you or a family member injury. Suffering injuries while out of town can be particularly worrisome since you are away from familiar doctors, hospitals, and your usual support system.
