Examples of common types of resort accidents
Sometimes when people are on vacation, they are in a more relaxed mode and they are looking to have fun and memorable experiences while they are visiting a resort in an exotic setting. For this reason, many people let their guard down while on vacation making them easy targets. Also, with so much exploration and fun activities going on there are plenty of opportunities for accidents and injuries including:
- Diving and other swimming accidents
- Jet ski accidents
- Parasailing accidents
- Boating accidents
- Hiking accidents
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Hot tub injuries
- Injuries in the resort’s fitness center
- Assaults and robberies from inadequate security
- Slip and fall accidents
- Elevator and escalator injuries
- Food poisoning
Resort guests who get hurt in these accidents can suffer cuts and lacerations, broken bones, burns, back and neck injuries, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and sprain injuries.
Is the resort liable when a guest is injured?
If you or a loved one suffers a serious injury while you are a guest at the resort, who can you sue? Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident, and whether the accident was caused by a foreseeable hazard, the resort management may be liable for the guests’ injuries and losses. If you can prove that the resort owed you a duty of care to make sure that the hazard that caused your injury was mitigated, and that their negligence in not removing the hazard or warning guests about the inherent danger of the hazard caused your injury, the resort may be liable for your injuries.
