Islamorada Motel Injury Lawyer

When you travel through the Florida Keys, you may choose to stay at a motel. These establishments differ from hotels in that they are typically off highways and interstates, offer only one or two floors of rooms, and have doors facing outward toward the parking lot. Motels often offer convenient and budget-friendly lodging. However, if the motel is not properly run and supervised, you and your loved ones may be at risk for getting hurt. A lack of maintenance and short cuts could create hazards you may not be able to see. When you encounter these hazards, you can suddenly find yourself injured and facing medical bills. You and your loved ones can also be the victim of crimes on motel property.

If you were injured while staying at an Islamorada motel, we recommend contacting our Islamorada motel injury lawyers at Gerson & Schwartz P.A. at (877) 475-2905 or online.
