Hotels and Resort Negligence
Let Our Florida Hotel Injury Lawyers Help You After an Accident
Florida Hotel Negligence Lawyer for Premises Liability and Other Injury Claims Against Resorts and Other Properties
When you stay at a hotel or resort, the last thing on your mind is the risk of getting injured. You expect the property to be well-maintained, and you expect the property’s management staff to ensure the safety of all visitors and guests. Unfortunately, while these expectations are reasonable, accidents happen, and when they do, property owners can – and should – be held liable. If you’ve been injured, you should talk to a Florida hotel negligence lawyer, and we encourage you to contact us right away.
When Can You Sue a Hotel or Resort in Florida for Negligence?
Paying and non-paying guests can sue hotels and resorts in a wide variety of scenarios. Under Florida law, hotels and resorts must maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition, and they can be held when they fail to do so. Some examples of issues for which a Florida hotel injury lawyer can help injured guests seek just compensation include:
- Swimming pool hazards (i.e., slippery decks, inadequate signage or inadequate maintenance)
- Flooring hazards (i.e., frayed carpets, cracked sidewalks, or slippery tiles)
- Unsafe showers or bathtubs
- Inadequate maintenance or cleaning
- Toxic mold, lead paint or asbestos exposure
- Inadequate lighting or security
- Assaults by hotel or resort staff members
- Injuries caused by other guests
- Overserving drunk guests
- Elevator and escalator malfunctions
- Parking lot hazards (i.e., inadequate visibility, inadequate signage or crosswalk markings, or maintenance issues)
- Ocean water or rain puddles, sand, or other slip-and-fall hazards
Do You Have a Premises Liability or Personal Injury Claim Against a Hotel or Resort?
Most claims against hotels and resorts are based on the law of premises liability. This law requires property owners to maintain the safety of their premises for visitors and guests. If you slipped or tripped, if your injuries are the result of an escalator malfunction, or if you were injured due to any other issue with the hotel’s or resort’s premises, then a lawyer may be able to help you pursue a claim for premises liability.
The other possibility is that you could have a personal injury claim. For example, if a staff member or drunk guest assaulted you, you may have a personal injury claim against the hotel or resort.
Regardless of what type of claim you have, you are entitled to full compensation for your injuries, and an experienced Florida hotel injury lawyer can help you recover. At Searcy Denney, our lawyers bring decades of experience to helping injury victims recover their losses, and we can use our experience to help make sure you receive the compensation you deserve.
