Motel and Hotel Accidents
Legal Representation for Hotel Guests and Employees
Florida is known for its beaches and tourists attractions. The tourism industry is a large part of Florida’s economy. However, with power comes responsibility, and sometimes the hotel operators fall short of ensuring the safety of their guests. Kaire & Heffernan provide legal representation for hotel guests and employees who suffer injuries as a result of a slip and fall, trip and fall or because of inadequate security, poor maintenance, and lighting.
If you are injured at your place of work -a hotel, motel- or injured as a guest of a hotel or motel then you may be entitled to compensation.
Hotel Guest Injury
Research has discovered that we do actually need a vacation. A break from the day-to- day gives our mind and body time to rejuvenate. Science believes that a vacation can really heal our inner and physical selves.
Vacations can be the place to unwind and to experience other cultures. It can also help you get out of the rut and routine of daily life.
Professionals point the way to a healthier and happier life by slowing down, resting and taking some time away from work.
We all know one of the goals of a vacation is that you are suppose to come back from your holiday or weekend away unhurried, energized and more alive than when you started out from home.

Make an Official Report
Make sure you or your family member takes down all the details about the accident including photographs of the scene, names of witnesses and what caused the injury.
If you are injured you should seek immediate medical treatment and tell your doctor everything about your symptoms. If you have a family doctor back home, call and let him or her know about your accident. Keep all the bills and receipts as part of your record keeping of this incident.
Hotel Employee Injury
The property owner is responsible for your workplace safety. Hotel and Motel staff can suffer more injuries than any other service worker.
In particular, Housekeepers are prone to repetitive work in a fast-paced mode because they are under the clock to complete their daily cleaning-quota.
If you have back-pain or joint pain in your arms and shoulders and have continued to suffer even after medication and Doctor’s treatment then you may be able to receive workers compensation benefits.
Did you overexert yourself while trying to meet your quota? Were you violently attacked while going about your daily routine?
Do you work in the restaurant and suffer burns or scalds?
If you have suffered severe cuts, sprains, stresses, burns or broken bones while on the job then you need to recover your medical costs and lost wages through a Workers Compensation claim.
