How to Hold a Hotel Accountable for a Slip and Fall Accident in South Florida
As with most slip and fall accidents in South Florida the plaintiff has the burden of proving that the hotel was negligent and that this negligence caused the dangerous condition that caused them to slip and fall. In order to accomplish this the plaintiff will need to show that the hotel had actual knowledge or constructive knowledge of the condition that caused the slip and fall accident. Actual knowledge can sometimes be proven using video surveillance footage, witness statements as well as the maintenance records of the hotel. Constructive notice of the dangerous condition is usually proven by showing that the hotel should have known by showing that the condition had existed for a substantial period of time or the fact that the dangerous condition occurred at the hotel with some frequency prior to the date of someone’s slip and fall such that the hotel should have known of the the dangerous condition’s existence.
