At the center of the hotel industry is hospitality: the idea of making a guest feel at home while keeping them safe and secure. When someone is hurt in a hotel accident, it is absolutely inexcusable as it is indicative of a neglectful act by hotel staff that goes completely against their own standards, obligations, and expectations. The whole situation can feel even more inhospitable when the hotel owner or company will not take responsibility for their actions, or inaction.
If you have been hurt in a hotel accident, let our Miami premises liability lawyers from Stabinski & Funt, P.A. take up your case and fight for your compensation. We will not charge you anything upfront – initial case evaluations are free – and we do not like collecting our paychecks until you collect a settlement (contingency fees). Retain nearly two centuries’ worth of legal experience by contacting us today.
While you are on vacation and enjoying time on Miami’s beaches, you might be letting your mind wander and total precaution may understandably not be your top priority all the time, especially when you are returning to your hotel for some rest and relaxation. After all, it should not have to be. Securing the grounds and removing dangerous hazards from the area is the job and duty of the hotel and its staff, not its patrons.
Accidents and incidents that can happen at a Florida hotel include:
Suffering a serious injury in a hotel is a problem that obviously requires compensation but proving that it does may not be straightforward. In all premises liability cases, there are specific requirements that must be met for the claim to be considered valid.
Your hotel accident case should be able to prove that:
If you spill water while exiting the bathtub and slip on it the next time you go to the bathroom, you would not have a strong premises liability claim. The hotel employees would not have known about the problem and could not fix it, even though you were injured. However, if you slipped due to a spill in the lobby, your claim would be much stronger. In any public area of a hotel – essentially whatever is not within your room – should be frequented by hotel staff.
Many hotel names are synonymous with upper classes and wealth. If you are bringing a lawsuit against a Hilton location, for example, you must be aware that the company will have a team of attorneys ready and waiting to challenge your claim or offer you as small a settlement amount as legally possible. To even the scales and get ready for the fight ahead, let Stabinski & Funt and our Miami personal injury lawyers step into the ring on your behalf. We are not afraid of the opposition, no matter how great, and we never pull punches when our clients’ livelihoods are on the line.
