Negligent Vacation Resorts Attorney
Vacations are meant to be spent enjoying the sights and sounds of an exciting destination, not anxiously sitting in a hospital getting treated for an injury you or your family member wrongfully suffered. At Dana J. Watts, Attorney at Law, we are determined to help our Florida clients who have been injured on vacation hold those at fault responsible for the damages they have endured.
When Your Vacation Turns Into A Medical Nightmare, Contact Our Firm Right Away
Our Sarasota-based team is led by founder and managing attorney Dana J. Watts. We realize the physical and financial problems you are facing, and we want you to know that our firm is fully prepared to give you the legal assistance you need.
Our AV-rated* lawyer assists Florida residents and out-of-state clients in vacation accident cases involving hotels, resorts, theme parks, pools, restaurants and other attractions. Our cases often include swimming pool accidents and slip, trip and fall accidents.
Even if you didn’t get hurt on the premises but instead suffered injuries going to or coming from the premises, you may still have a case. It is very important to take steps to document and collect any information that can help in proving your case. This includes:
- Photographing the accident scene
- Photographing and documenting your injuries
- Reporting injuries and hazards to the manager
- Keeping a log or diary of your symptoms and making sure your doctors note them
- Keeping a log or diary of the activities you are unable to do as a result of your injuries
It is very difficult to prove negligence if the resort or hotel or other premise you were visiting fixes the hazard before you are able to document it.
When you consult with our Bradenton and Sarasota vacation resort injury attorney, he will work closely with you to learn about your circumstances and determine if our firm can help you with your negligence claim. We will thoroughly explore and pursue all possible liable parties in your case.
