Florida hotel premises liability – understanding the applications

Premises liability law for hotel owners revolves around defining the responsibility of hotels, motels, and resorts to ensure the safety of their guests. For example, if a hotel fails to properly take care of its grounds, such as failing to fix uneven pavement in a parking lot, then the hotel may have committed a breach of its duty of care to its patrons. If an injury occurs due to this breach of duty, the hotel owner may be held responsible for the injuries.
