Trump International Beach Resort faces slip and fall lawsuit
Posted on September 16, 2015 | Categorized: Slip and Fall
A Kentucky woman has filed a negligence lawsuit against Trump International Beach Resort luxury golf resort near Miami, Florida, claiming she was injured after falling in the pool area of the property.
The slip and fall lawsuit was filed in a Miami-Dade County circuit court against Trump National Doral Miami, where the plaintiff was vacationing. The woman, a recruitment specialist who works near Louisville, Kentucky, said she fell hard on a marble floor which was “unreasonably slippery” because of water from the Jacuzzi. She is seeking damages in excess of $15,000 for her pain and suffering.
If you are injured in a slip and fall accident at a resort or hotel, the owner may be responsible for paying you compensation for your injuries. However, you must be able to prove the resort was negligent in allowing the conditions that caused your accident to exist.
Determining fault comes down to two key factors: whether or not the resort employees knew about the hazardous condition and had the opportunity to correct it before the injury occurred, and how much control the resort had over the situation. The resort can be liable for slip-and-fall accidents if facts show that it failed to keep guests safe.
It is important to note that determining fault can be more complicated than it might seem. If you were injured and you believe someone else is fully or partially to blame, contact Chalik & Chalik to learn more about your rights.
