Miami Hotel Responsibilities
When deciding to stay at one of Miami’s more than 450 hotels, you are choosing location and amenities, as well as believing that the hotel will keep you safe. Miami Hotel owners have a duty to keep their guests safe and free from harm. Florida law specifically defines hotels as a public lodging establishment; and as a public facility, there is an added duty to protect guests who are staying at these establishments.
Owners of Miami hotels are required to maintain their hotels in a reasonably safe condition and to repair or fix any known dangerous or hazardous conditions. Owners also have a duty to inspect their hotels for hidden defects on the property and if defects are discovered, they have a duty to warn their guests of these hidden hazards and to then promptly repair them or erect safeguards to protect their guests from harm.
The Florida Legislature mandates that hotels protect their guests during the regular course of business. When hotels do not take the necessary precautions to protect their guests from slip and fall accidents, drowning accidents at the pool or the beach or criminal acts such as robbery or rape, you need the experience of the Boyers Law Group.
Negligence at Miami Hotels
The failure of a hotel operator to properly maintain their property is negligence, and that negligence can result in tragic injury. Lack of signage around a pool deck, an improperly maintained piece of gym equipment or even a poorly lighted hallway are all negligent actions that may contribute to a traumatic injury while staying at a Miami hotel. Hotel owners, staff and management are responsible for ensuring that the property is free and clear of hazards that may cause guests to become seriously injured. If hotel operators fail to maintain their hotel and you become injured, they can be held liable.
The modern duties owed Miami hotel guests are based on history; when exhausted travelers reached wayside inns as night approached, they were not to be arbitrarily turned away into the dark or otherwise subjected to the capriciousness of the “innkeeper” regarding lodging costs or adequacy or safety of the room to rent. The modern interpretation of the “innkeeper” duty in Florida Statutes serves to protect Miami hotel visitors and guests from hotel negligence.
Accidents and Injuries at Miami Hotels
Many Miami hotels operate as mini cities, containing all the amenities a guest could desire during their stay. However, these perks and conveniences, when not properly maintained, can be the source of tragic injuries for guests. Some of the many types of hotel accidents include the following:
