Hotel and Resorts Injuries
Serious personal injuries can happen when staying at or visiting hotels and resorts.
In Florida, in 2021, tourism contributed $101.9 billion to Florida’s Gross State Produce. In 2022, Las Vegas reached an all time high revenue from tourism of $79.3 billion. Tourism is a multi-billion dollar industry, and hundreds of millions of people each year are drawn and lured to visit the Sunshine and Silver States by hotel advertising.
But whether it be under Florida or Nevada law, hotel and resort owners are responsible to take reasonable measures to ensure your safety while you are on their premises. This is true on any part of the premises, whether it be in your room, hotel restaurants, shows, or any other common area. Hotels often violate their obligations under the law, and even create hazards for their own guests, resulting in injuries during their stays, sometimes serious or fatal.
Whether you are a local enjoying a staycation, or a visitor, or traveling on a cruise ship or other water vessel, be aware of the potential risks. Common causes of accidental injuries include.
- Slips and falls, due to wet floors, uneven walkways, or excessive clutter and construction debris;
- Getting struck by or against objects, due to loose fixtures, improperly attached decor, or as a result of renovation work;
- Electrocutions and burn injuries, due to loose wiring, hot surfaces, or fires;
- Accidental drownings, due to failure to provide lifeguards, pool fencing, or other safety precautions;
- Severe cuts and lacerations, due to sharp surfaces and broken glass
- Motor vehicle accident injuries, which can happen in parking lots, during shuttle trips, or due to golf carts on the property.
- Falls into obscured drops, fall hazards, water fixtures;
- Falls or injuries on moving carriers passengers (i.e., escalator/elevator/moving walkway)
