Key West Premises Liability Layers Discuss Negligent Security and Accidents and Incidents for Injured Hotel Guests

Protecting the rights of the injured throughout South Florida

People flock to Key West and South Florida for our abundant sunshine, warm temperatures, beautiful land and seascapes and fun attractions. Tourists, business people and locals stay in Florida hotels for many reasons, and when they check in to a hotel or motel, they have a reasonable expectation of safety while they play, have fun, relax or conduct business activities.

Premises liability and negligent security in Key West hotels

Hotel guests have the expectation of safety as they come and go throughout the hotel or resort property. They should not have to lay awake wondering if they might be attacked or robbed or sexually assaulted. Unfortunately, sometimes those things happen and the perpetrator’s ability to get close enough to attack a guest can be traced back to the hotel’s failure to do the following;

  • Provide adequate locks on room doors and access hallways to rooms
  • Provide adequate lighting in hallways and outdoor walkways
  • Install and monitor surveillance cameras in all public areas
  • Properly screen and hire trained staff
  • Inadequate security personnel on the property
  • Failure to remove guests who have had too much to drink or who are being violent

Proving negligence on the part of the hotel

If you were a guest at a hotel and you suffered an injury because you were attacked, you may want to hold the hotel accountable for your injuries. Inadequate security falls under an area of law called premises liability. To prevail in your injury case, there are four elements for which you will have to provide evidence:

  • You will need to prove that the hotel owner owed a duty of care to provide a secure environment for you in their hotel;
  • Whether they breached that duty by failing to prevent the attacker from attacking you while on their property;
  • Whether that breach was the cause of your injury;
  • And what injuries or damages your suffered.

What damages might I recover in a premises liability claim?

The damages you might recover if you were to prevail in a premises liability case of negligent security could include:

  • Medical expenses related to the injury
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
