Common Causes of Hotel & Resort Accidents

Hotel with glass walls Hotel and resort accidents happen every day in South Florida. But not all accidents are inevitable. Many accidents are avoidable with the exercise of reasonable care and common sense. Hotel operators and owners are required to keep their property well-maintained, clean and safe.
