There is nothing worse than being injured in an accident because of someone else’s negligence, especially when you’re away on vacation or business.

Our firm can help you pursue the financial compensation you require to get back on your feet again. Here are some of the questions you may have about hotel accidents and how we can help if you’ve been hurt in one.
What are the most common causes of hotel accidents in Orlando?
There are several ways in which a serious accident can occur in a hotel. Some of the most common causes of hotel accidents include unsafe swimming pool conditions, unsafe hotel gym conditions, and other parts of hotel premises becoming unsafe as a result of hotel staff or ownership negligence. Hotel staff and management are responsible for ensuring that hotels are maintained and in a safe condition for all those staying there, and unfortunately, when they fail to do so, serious accidents can happen as a result. Something as simple as a spilled liquid left unaddressed can lead to a very serious accident.
That said, at other times, serious accidents can also happen in hotels because of dangerously designed or manufactured products, such as gym equipment or elevators/escalators. If you were hurt by an unsafely designed or produced piece of machinery, you may actually have a valid product liability claim. Whether you have a premises liability claim or a product liability claim, you’ve come to the right place. Our firm is here to help. To learn more about what you need to prove to win a premises liability claim, simply watch the video below.
