Types of Accidents at Boca Raton Hotels & Resorts
There are numerous ways that someone could be injured, but some of the more common include:
- Slip and fall accidents caused by hazardous floors
- Swimming pool accidents caused by poor maintenance or lack of security
- Elevator or escalator accidents
- Electrocution by appliances or products like hair dryers
- Bed bugs or other insect infestations
- Food poisoning caused by improperly cooked or stored food
- Snorkeling or boating accidents
- Dangerous furniture, such as unstable bureaus which topple over or bedding which catches on fire
- Unsafe balconies leading to falls
- Inadequate security leading to break in or assault
As businesses providing services to customers, hotels and resorts must use reasonable care to protect their guests. When these businesses act negligently and expose guests to harm, they can be held liable for the damages caused.
Why These Lawsuits Are Challenging
Although Florida law gives many victims the right to sue, there are practical and legal difficulties with doing so.
For example, many hotels and resorts are part of larger chains which employ large legal teams. They scrutinize every claim and reject as many as possible. They are unafraid to undercompensate injured victims and to request victims to sign away their right in exchange for small sums before the victim has an opportunity to speak to an attorney.
Another challenge involves proving liability. Many resorts and hotels outsource services or enter contracts with third parties, like tour guides. If you are injured on an outing, the hotel might claim that liability rests with the company providing the tour.
Still yet another challenge involves suing a resort when you return home following your vacation. All the evidence is here, in Boca Raton. Any negotiation or litigation will probably also take place in Boca Raton. If you live in Michigan or Maine, it will be difficult to bring a case from such a far distance. This is why hiring local counsel is to your advantage. We know most of the large resorts and hotels and can perform an investigation because of our convenient location.
