Boca Raton Hotel Injury Lawyer

Boca Raton has one of the most thriving hospitality industries in Florida. Notable hotels in the City of All Seasons include The Boca Raton (formerly the Boca Hotel & Resort) Boca Raton Marriott, and Hilton Boca Raton Suites just to name a few. Throughout the year, thousands of people visit the city’s hotels and expect they’ll be safe when visiting these establishments.
Nonetheless, that’s no longer the case because some properties are managed by negligent owners. When this happens, guests are likely to fall victim to hotel accidents.
An injury lawyer in Boca Raton at Eltringham Law Group can help you pursue compensation for your lost wages, medical bills, and other damages if you or a loved one gets injured in a hotel accident.

Causes of Hotel Accidents

The leading causes of hotel accidents in Boca Raton include:
  • Garage and parking lot accidents
  • Slippery floors.
  • Broken steps/railings
  • Bathtub accidents
  • Improper lighting in rooms, resulting in falls and injuries
  • Accidents involving valet drivers
  • Broken furniture
Most hotel accidents are preventable, and you deserve compensation for any injuries or losses you suffer.

Examples of Hotel Injuries

Here are examples of injuries that can occur in a hotel:
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Elevator and escalator accidents
  • Drownings
  • Burn injuries caused by faulty equipment

What to Do After an Accident at a Hotel in Boca Raton

Hotel operators in Boca Raton owe guests the duty of care. In this regard, they should ensure their premises are safe. If that doesn’t happen and an accident occurs, you should take the following steps to secure your right to compensation:

Document the accident scene

If an unsafe condition contributed to the accident, document it immediately. After learning about the accident, the hotel may rectify the condition, so taking photographs/videos of the scene can provide valuable evidence when you file a lawsuit.

Notify the management

Insurance companies typically require hotels to file an accident report when they learn about it. For this reason, you should notify the management about your injuries and the circumstances that contributed to them. It’s equally important to avoid making accusations/admissions. You should always ask for a copy of any incident report although many hotels will refuse to give it to you.

Seek medical attention

It’s best to see a doctor promptly so that your injuries get documented. The hotel may argue that your injuries occurred elsewhere, but the medical report on the day or day after such an incident can help disprove such claims.

At Eltringham Law Group, we have experience advocating personal injury cases arising from hotel accidents. We can assess your situation, advise you on the appropriate steps, and represent you if you decide to pursue legal action.

How Do You Prove a Hotel’s Negligence?

A hotel guest who gets injured and intends to pursue compensation must prove that the establishment breached the duty of care owed to them. In addition, hotels must inspect the premises regularly, keep them safe, and implement reasonable measures to warn guests of potentially dangerous situations.
Anyone who is a customer at any lodging establishment is an “invitee” under Florida premises liability law. For this reason, once you check into a hotel room, you’re entitled to a high standard of care. You can file a personal injury lawsuit if you get injured due to negligence by a hotel. When filing a case, you must prove that the operator breach its duty to keep you safe from harm, that you sustained injuries and those injuries are related to the accident that occurred on the hotel’s property.
For instance, if a hotel fails to light its parking lot sufficiently and a guest gets assaulted, it can be liable for any injuries suffered. Similarly, a hotel can be responsible if it fails to clear ice from the driveway or other pedestrian walk way and a guest slips and gets injured.

Potential Damages in Hotel Injury Cases

Guests who suffer injuries in a hotel accident can recover both economic and non-economic damages. The monetary damages can be in the form of lost wages and medical expenses. On the other hand, the non-economic damages can include loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of consortium.

How We Can Help

Hotel accident claims are complex and challenging to pursue, but here’s how an attorney from Eltringham Law Group can help:

Gathering evidence

Personal injury lawsuits typically rely on accident and medical reports and similar evidence to prove fault, negligence, and liability. In addition, an attorney can gather evidence, such as witness statements and surveillance footage, to support your claim.

Finding expert witnesses

An attorney with years of experience handling personal injury claims knows the experts they can ask for answers relating to various injuries. These experts can testify about the cause and nature of your injuries, provide a prognosis for a medical condition, offer their opinion about engineering faults, or reconstruct the accident.

Valuing your injury claim

When you decide to pursue compensation, you may not know the value of your claim since you’re not familiar with Florida’s personal injury laws. Insurance adjusters will try as much as possible to devalue your claim and make low ball settlement offers. But that’s where the hotel injury attorneys from Eltringham Law Group come in.
We will calculate the value of your claim based on the severity of your injuries and your economic and non-economic damages. Our attorneys know how to maximize the value of your claim and ensure you get fully compensated for your losses and injuries.

Communicate with the insurance company

Insurance companies are known to pay accident victims as little money as possible. They may deny liability or claim that the injuries resulted from something else.
Your lawyer has your best interests at heart and can save you from the stress of dealing with insurers. This way, you can focus on recovering while they work to secure compensation for you.

5 star review

I usually never leave reviews, good or bad, but for this instance, I most definitely had to. David and Marnie were both AMAZING. They made me feel comfortable and confident in their ability to resolve my case. I was walking in a crosswalk and was hit by a vehicle resulting in having to go to the hospital. I sustained injuries from this that I am still in the midst of dealing with. I contacted the firm and was able to speak with them via zoom immediately. I decided to sign with them on a Monday evening (3 days after my accident) and by Tuesday afternoon (the very next day) my case was settled. And settled for the very max that was able to be obtained. I attribute a lot of this to not only the expertise of the firm, but the relationships that Marnie has built with her experience working as a lawyer within a major insurance provider, which just so happened to be the insurance provider involved in my case. This is incredibly atypical for a case to be settled this quickly, especially with this outcome. It has been two weeks to the day today that my accident has happened and my case has already been resolved. I am blessed and more than happy that I decided to hire this firm. Every case is different, but I can bet that this firm will handle your case with care and the utmost professionalism. I pray I never have to go through a situation like this again, but if I did, I wouldn’t hesitate to call this law firm. Thank you guys very much!!

I highly recommend Eltringham Law Group to anyone seeking legal advice after having a car accident. David Eltringham and his entire staff gave me the personal attention I needed during a very difficult and painful time. David took the extra steps needed to ensure that I received the medical care I needed as well as the financial compensation I deserved. Harold Torres, Paralegal updated me every step of the way. Thank you Eltringham Law Group!
