Who Is Financially Liable for a Timeshare Accident? 

Due to the proximity to beaches, theme parks, and attractions, many timeshare companies operate in Orlando, Orange County, and throughout Central Florida. These companies build or acquire vacation properties and rent them to timeshare “owners” who buy into the property in exchange for allotted vacation days. 

In addition, these owners can sublet vacation time they cannot use to others. This arrangement can complicate personal injury cases on timeshare properties when identifying financial liability. 

Our timeshare premises liability lawyer can determine whether the timeshare company, owner, or another party bears responsibility for your losses. In addition, we’ll review the applicable insurance coverage and recommend your best options for seeking compensation.

Do You Need an Orlando Attorney to Handle Your Timeshare Accident Case?

If the party responsible for your premises liability injury lives or conducts business in Florida, the state has jurisdiction over your personal injury case—even if you reside elsewhere. However, any attorney you hire must have a license to practice in Florida. 

Hiring an Orlando lawyer can benefit you by giving you an ally who understands the state’s insurance and legal systems and can handle tasks that must be done locally or in person. Our premises liability lawyers can:

  • Draft and file your insurance claims.
  • Handle meetings, emails, and phone calls with insurance adjusters and opposing counsel.
  • Aggressively negotiate for the maximum settlement possible.
  • Answer your questions, provide regular status updates, and maintain open lines of communication.
  • Prepare your case and represent you at a trial if necessary.
  • Make official appearances for you when possible.

What Is the Statute of Limitations in Florida? 

Florida law allows you two years to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, per Florida Statute § 95.11. You must meet the deadline to avoid the court dismissing your case. Unfortunately, a lapsed deadline will also reduce your bargaining power with the insurance company. However, our lawyers serving Orlando can help you get started before it is too late.
