Boca Raton Hotel & Resort Liability
Protecting the Rights of Injured Florida Tourists and Visitors
Vacation is supposed to be a time to relax and unwind—it makes sense that the last thing on the average tourist’s mind is the potential for suffering a life-changing injury. Sadly, however, it is wholly possible to sustain an injury on vacation, especially when negligent hotels and resorts are involved. When these businesses fail to keep their rooms, lobbies, parking garages, pools, and other facilities safe for guests, they may be liable for any resulting damages—from medical bills to pain and suffering, and everything in between.
If you have been injured while visiting Boca Raton due to no fault of your own, you likely have a right to seek compensation for your damages. At Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen, our award-winning lawyers have helped numerous clients hold hotels and resorts accountable for their negligence.

Understanding Your Rights as a Tourist
Owners of hotels and resorts have a responsibility to ensure that their premises are safe for guests. This is not merely a courtesy; it’s the law. According to premises liability law, property owners and managers have a legal duty to promptly fix safety hazards on their properties and, in the meantime, notify guests of that hazard. It further states that property owners/managers can be held liable for safety hazards they should have reasonably known about. When they fail to fulfill these duties, they are considered negligent.
An example of this law in action is if a back alley on hotel property has been the scene of numerous assaults. Per law, hotel management must take action to prevent future assaults, such as by hiring a security guard. If they cannot hire someone immediately, they must warn guests of the danger. Should another assault occur, the law would say they “reasonably should have known” of the danger and addressed it, especially if official police reports were filed.
The Question of Jurisdiction: Where Should I File Suit?
Many tourists injured on vacation are confused about where they should take legal action. The answer is simple: You will need to file suit in the state where the defendant (the party you are suing) is a citizen and does business. For cases concerning hotels and resorts in Boca Raton and surrounding areas, you would have to file suit in Florida.
