Attorney Ross Jurewitz Talks Travel Safety with UT-San Diego

By Ross Jurewitz on July 22, 2013

Experienced San Diego injury attorney Ross Jurewitz recently sat down with the news team at UT-San Diego to discuss travel safety. With the month of August still ahead, many families in southern California will be heading to their favorite vacation destinations or checking out brand-new locales as part of the summer vacation experience. For those still planning their summer getaway, Jurewitz Law Group offers the following tips:

  • Check your medical options. If you have health insurance, look at your policy before you travel so you know whether you have coverage if you are injured at your destination or while traveling. Look into medical facilities and services in the places you’ll visit so you know what you can do if an injury or illness occurs.
  • Review safety information. The U.S. government provides location-specific safety information on a number of destinations across the globe online at travel.state.gov. See travel precautions from the State Department, learn how to obtain or renew your passport, and more.
  • Choose a local and an at-home contact person. Designate both a local contact, such as someone who is traveling with you, and a contact at home, like a family member or trusted friend, so that both people may be contacted if you are in an accident or suffer an injury while traveling.
  • Make copies. Make copies of your passport, credit cards, and other vital information. Store at least one set of copies in your suitcase or another safe place that is not on your person, so if you lose your wallet or purse while out and about, you still have the information you need.
