You need to know it!

I was injured due to a fall at a Mexican resort. Am I eligible for compensation?

Yes, the resort or any tourism company is responsible for its guests. Quintana Roo tourism laws dictate that any establishment providing tourism activities or lodging must meet all safety and security measures to ensure its guests' safety; they are obligated to ensure that the facilities are in proper condition to avoid injury to guests and employees. Consult with a Mexican lawyer to discuss your situation.

What type of injuries would be considered for personal injury cases?

Any injury you sustained due to someone else's negligence such as; premises liability, tourism activity injuries, vehicular accidents, food poisoning, assault, malpractice, or wrongful death.

Do I need to pay legal fees upfront?

Personal injury lawyers typically request a small retainer in good faith, with the balance of the legal fees to be deducted from the settlement.

Will I need to appear in a Mexican court?

In most cases, personal injury claims are settled out of court. Your lawyer will negotiate fair compensation to cover the cost of medical expenses and any loss of wages. Each situation is different, and your lawyer will decide if necessary to take the case to trial. The judge will determine whether or not the victim needs to appear in court, but your lawyer can represent you in most situations.

How can I help support my personal injury case?

Seek medical attention, call a personal injury lawyer, and take photos of the area where the injury took place. Whether it was water on the floor, uneven flooring, loose tiles, or obstructions that caused you to lose footing, document any evidence that can support your claim. If you were involved in a vehicle accident, collect evidence such as photos, the other driver's ID, insurance, witnesses' contact info, and a police report.

*Never sign any paperwork without reviewing it with your lawyer and collect as many receipts and invoices as possible for any medical or other expenses you incur from the injury.
