Florida is an ideal destination for many tourists, with beautiful beaches, plenty of activities and great restaurants. Many visitors choose to stay at local resorts or hotels, which provide all elements of a great vacation in one convenient location. Hotel and resort guests plan stays at these facilities expecting that they have been inspected and are reasonably safe from dangers on the premises, including attractions and transportation provided by the hotel or resort. If dangers or hazards are present and known to the facility, there is a legal duty to warn guests of dangerous conditions. Common types of hotel and resort accidents include:
- Swimming accidents
- Water sport accidents
- Fitness center injuries
- Slip and fall accidents
- Food poisoning
- Elevator/escalator accidents
When hotel and resort owners breach this duty of care, they may be held liable for injuries and damages that occur on their premises as a result. Those injured due to a hotel or resorts negligence in maintaining the premises have the right to pursue a resort tort lawsuit against the facilities owners. Premises liability cases require the injured party to prove negligence by demonstrating that the property owner owed a duty of care to them and that the owners breach of this duty resulted in injuries or damages.
