Transporting Guests Can Expose Hotels to LiabilityPDF
David Samuels' article, "Transporting Guests Can Expose Hotels to Liability," was published in Hotel News Now on November 29, 2016.
From the article...
"A recent case out of the California Courts of Appeal highlights the factors to be assessed when attempting to determine if your shuttle service makes you a common carrier under the law, and addresses the potential implications of being held to a higher standard of care. If you are a hotelier who provides transportation services for your guests and patrons, now is the time to assess the scope of those shuttle services and, if the common carrier criteria are met, implement comprehensive safety precautions."
