Resort Torts

Leesfield Scolaro specializes in personal injury law, with a strong focus on Resort Torts. A tort is a wrongful act that injures someone, whether from accidental causes based on negligence or intentional wrongdoing, where the injured person has the legal right to sue responsible parties for damages in a civil court proceeding.

Resort Torts are such cases that arise in a resort, vacation, or recreational setting and have one thing in common: being exposed to controllable risks while traveling, vacationing, or engaging in resort or pleasure activities. Resort Torts may involve negligent or inadequate resort safety and security; cruise ship accidents; boat, ATV, or jet ski accidents; amusement and theme park liability; diving and swimming incidents; gaming and casinos; plane crashes (commercial and general); rental car, moped, bicycle and motorcycle safety; bus and tour guide incidents; travel industry liability for crime victims; and medical care provided to vacationers.

Leesfield Scolaro has maintained a strong Resort Torts practice for over 30 years, and our highly experienced trial lawyers are some of the best in the business. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed as a result of premises liability such as trip and falls, violent criminal assaults due to negligent security or insufficient lighting, defective premises design or layout, dangerous products, pool and spa tragedies, transportation negligence, or medical malpractice provided by an innkeeper or cruise ship, you should contact our Florida law office today.

Businesses that cater to vacationers must do more than simply open their doors for business. Resorts must provide reasonably safe premises, protection from dangers, and adequate warnings about hazards. Many injuries are preventable, such as a child suffering from traumatic brain injury after a dangerous roller coaster ride or a person slipping and falling in a spa leading to back injury. You need skilled legal advice to know when business owners, manufacturers, or other parties can be held accountable.
