Resorts, travel companies, and travel guides have a responsibility to keep the travelers who use their services safe. Many travelers are not even aware of the potential dangers and hazards that are prevalent in popular destinations such as the Caribbean and other regions. International resorts and hotel chains, tour companies, and travel guides who are much more likely to be aware of potential dangers should take reasonable precautions to keep their clients safe from harm. This may mean that a travel agent should not send a client to a hotel in a violent neighborhood; that a tour operator should choose hotels that meet U.S. safety codes; and that an international hotel chain should take special safety measures in certain destinations. When they fail to do this, the guests could be injured or killed and those in charge need to be held accountable.
The attorneys at Koskoff, Koskoff, & Bieder have experience representing people who have been injured on vacation or who have lost loved ones because of negligence by the tour operators and travel guides. These lawsuits can be confusing. People are often uncertain as to where their suit can be brought, since the injury or loss occurred while traveling and not in their home state, sometimes not even in their country. The attorneys at Koskoff are experienced in advising clients on these matters, as they have litigated claims involving injuries that occurred while traveling, both within the U.S. and overseas.
