Florida Hotel & Resort Liability
Helping Miami Tourists and Visitors Seek Justice After Suffering On-Premises Injuries
It may not be in the vacation brochures, but when you visit a Florida hotel or resort, it’s possible to suffer a serious, life-threatening injury or lose a loved one to negligence. If you have been the victim of a hotel’s failure to warn of a known danger or failure to ensure the safety of its room, lobby, parking garage, pool, beach, or any other area of its property, you want to have a skilled and experienced personal injury attorney on your side.
Based in Miami, our trial attorneys at Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen have legal offices throughout Florida, a location that puts us in close proximity to many popular hotels and resorts. Over the past 30 years, our attorneys have helped many clients and families who were injured at hotels, by assisting them with seeking appropriate compensation for their injuries and losses.

Types of Hotel and Resort Injuries
Because hotels and resorts provide a “one stop shop” for visiting tourists to sleep, dine, relax, and play, the staff members and property owners have a clear mandate to ensure that their guests are protected from undue safety hazards. Whether you develop Legionnaire’s disease because of an unhygienic hot tub or have to rush a child to the emergency room after a poolside slip-and-fall, you could be entitled to compensation if negligence led to your losses.
The most common causes of hotel and resort injuries:
- Drowning and near-drowning incidents in pools and the ocean
- Shallow diving incidents
- Gym equipment malfunctions and defects
- Defective and broken furniture
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Hot tub accidents and infections
- Foodborne illnesses
- Negligent security leading to assault and injury on or around the property
- Bed bugs and other common pest infestations
- Injuries on excursions set up by the hotel
Understanding Premises Liability Laws in Florida
In most cases, a claim against a hotel or resort will fall under the category of premises liability law, meaning that property owners and building staff have a “duty of care” to provide certain clear warnings about safety hazards. Of course, these cases can be complicated and difficult to navigate, particularly if you’re an out-of-state tourist who isn’t sure where or when to file a lawsuit.
If you’ve been hurt in a hotel or a resort setting, or if you’ve suffered the loss of a loved one due to negligence, we can help. Our attorneys at Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen may be based in Miami, but we practice across South Florida and nationwide when the situation calls for it. No matter where you live, we invite you to contact our team if you have questions about a potential legal claim.
