Snowbird Accidents Happen: Here’s What You Can Do
Like the birds they emulate, Canadians are fond of migrating south for the winter season. And who can blame them? From the warmer climates to the sparkling waterways and the many outdoor activities that keep them busy, Canadian snowbirds find much to enjoy and appreciate in the Southern U.S. during the coldest months of the year at home.
It should therefore come as no surprise that over three million Canadians migrate to Florida every year, considered the most popular southern destination for the snowbirds. Unfortunately, as per our best laid plans, these visits are not always marked by sunshine and sandy beaches. Accidents happen – car incidents are particularly prevalent – and snowbirds are often left to navigate the complicated maze that comes with an out-of-country injury.
As a result, many Canadians suffer injuries that they must deal within the U.S. and upon their return to Canada. If you or your loved one has suffered an accident that occurred while “snowbirding” in the U.S. this year, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries.
