Florida Hotel Accidents and Injuries

Staying at a hotel or resort can be a luxurious time of relaxation, but what happens when your vacation is ruined or interrupted due to an unexpected injury?

As a guest at a hotel or resort in Florida, you have a reasonable expectation that your safety and health will not be at risk. Hotel owners and managers are subject to a very high standard of care when it comes to the safety of their guests. This means they are expected to take all action that is reasonably possible to make sure the premises of the hotel are safe for guests.  This duty extends to all areas including parking lots, garages, hotel-owned courtesy cars and shuttle buses, common areas, guest rooms, conference rooms, pools, spas, fitness centers, restaurants and grounds.

Most of the time, an accident at a hotel could and should have been prevented. Some of the most common causes of hotel injuries are:

  • Unmaintained pools and hot tubs
  • Unsupervised pools and play areas
  • Unsafe showers and bathtubs
  • Food poisoning
  • Broken or defective furniture
  • Neglected leaks and spills
  • Insect infestations
  • Poorly lit areas
  • Crumbling or cracking surfaces on sidewalks and parking lots
  • Negligent security
  • Frayed carpet

When a hotel fails to ensure that its premises are safe for guests, the hotel should be held liable for any injuries that result.  Injured guests can receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, physical pain and suffering and more.  An experienced personal injury attorney can help you prove that the hotel was negligent so that you can receive the full compensation you are entitled to.
