Florida is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, but what happens when your time in paradise turns into a catastrophic nightmare?

Every single day, somebody gets injured in a Florida hotel or resort. Many hotel and resort guests become injured due to dangerous equipment, slip-and-falls, misguided recreational activities, malfunctioning elevators, defective furniture, poorly maintained grounds, swimming pool accidents, and more. 

Under Florida premises liability law, hotel guests are “business invitees.” That means they are owed the highest duty of care, which generally calls for the owner to check the property for existing dangerous conditions and take appropriate steps to protect against such threats or warn guests. However, many hotels and resorts disregard safety measures leaving their guests at risk.

If you or someone you love was injured in a hotel accident, you should consult with our experienced hotel injury legal team to see if you have a claim to seek damages. At Loutos Law Firm, we will not settle for anything less than what you deserve.

Common Hotel And Resort Hazards

Below we list some of the most common hotel accidents and basis for premises liability injury claims:

  • Frayed or bunching carpet or rugs that cause tripping

  • Swimming pool accidents due to improperly maintained or unsupervised waterslides, pools, and other swimming areas

  • Precarious showers or bathtubs

  • Stair, elevator, or escalator accidents

  • Faulty furniture

  • Crumbling concrete in parking lots or on sidewalks

  • Malfunctioning doorways or windows

  • Inadequate security measures, such as poor lighting in the parking lot, broken locks on doorways, or lack of 24-7 security which lead to injury or assault

  • Hot tub injuries/accidents

  • Inadequately maintained fitness center or equipment

  • Hotel shuttle bus injury

  • Parking lot accidents

  • Food poisoning 

  • Accidents on rides or attractions at the resort or hotel


Hotels and resorts often provide a bouquet of amenities in order to attract as many reservations as possible. These amenities can range from establishment-sponsored excursions to on-site dining. If you were injured severely at a hotel or resort while visiting as a guest, your first step following immediate medical attention is to consult with an experienced injury attorney.

How We Help

You suffered a hotel injury, what's next?

Florida hotel and resort injury lawsuits are notably challenging, often involving multiple corporate entities, challenges regarding whether or not the defendant had actual or constructive notice of the hazard, whether the hazard was foreseeable, and various allegations of comparative fault. Insurance companies will also vehemently argue over liability, or argue your injuries weren’t as severe as you claim. For this reason, it is vital to have an experienced hotel injury attorney fighting on your side to investigate the case, gather evidence, and enforce your legal rights. Call Loutos Law at our Jensen Beach law office for a free initial consultation today.
