California Hospitality Law

Hospitality industry service providers have duties and responsibilities with regard to their guests and customers. When a hotel guest or a customer in a bar or restaurant is injured and prepares to file a claim or lawsuit against the hosting business, the key legal question is whether the service provider did or did not meet its responsibilities to its customers or guests.

A personal injury claim against a hosting business is not about sympathy or compassion — it is about clarifying whether negligence took place or not, and to what extent. The pertinent legal questions and issues extend beyond premises liability to include accepted standards in different branches of the hospitality industry, including the following:

  • Malls: Adequate or inadequate security is often at the crux of a mall-related injury claim for damages.
  • Food courts and restaurants: What responsibilities do they have for customers?
  • Sports arenas and golf courses: How should sports facilities management protect fans from hockey pucks or stray balls?
  • Airports: Who is responsible when an injury takes place in a business in an airport: the airport or a particular business operating inside the airport?
