Safety concerns at resort hotels

You go on vacation to get away from the ordinary problems of day-to-day life. Florida resorts are advertised as the perfect getaway spot for travelers. Unfortunately, accidents and injuries happen in resorts, just like anywhere else. In fact, some aspects of hotels and resorts can make injuries more likely to happen, if staff and property owners neglect their responsibilities. Anyone injured in a Florida resort should speak to an attorney about obtaining full compensation for their injuries and expenses.

Common resort injuries

Premises liability lawsuits help get the victims of resort injuries the compensation they deserve. The proper compensation depends on many factors, including the nature and severity of the injury. Hotel and resort visitors can be involved in a wide range of accidents, including: 

  • Slip-and-falls or trip-and falls caused by spilled food, slick floors, broken sidewalks, unrepaired potholes, loose carpeting and other dangerous conditions
  • Criminal assaults, including sexual assaults by other visitors, resort staff and trespassers, due to negligent security, negligent hiring, insufficient lighting and other problems
  • Drowning and submersion injuries in pools that are not properly secured and staffed
  • Injuries resulting from improperly maintained or unsafe recreational equipment, including Jet Skis, parasailing rigs and more

Fatal accidents in Florida resorts

Some accidents are relatively minor. Others involve substantial injuries and impairment. The most tragic injuries are fatal. While no amount of compensation can make up for losing a loved one, it is important to hold hotels and resorts accountable for their negligence. A wrongful death claim can help bring closure and provide needed resources for families thrown into turmoil by a tragic loss.

Accidents happen, but that is no excuse for negligence

Even the largest, most expensive resorts can expose their guests to danger. Hotel and resort owners are often keen to avoid admitting responsibility for a serious injury. They may deny legal responsibility and try to pin the blame on a third party or on the victim. Resort owners have a duty to protect the visitors to their property. When they fail in that duty, they should be held liable. If you have been injured in a Florida resort, contact an attorney as soon as possible to learn more about your rights.
