Mexican Law/slip and fall


While we were staying at a resort in Cancun for a wedding my husband had gone to get towels for those of us in the pool.  On his way back he slipped on the wet tile and injured his left arm.  The fall occurred on a Friday.  He saw the orthopedic Dr at home on Monday and the xrays showed a fracture. He is scheduled for a MRI and the dr suspects he will have to have surgery.  Do we have any recourse towards the resort to assist with medical bills and lost wages?


Well... Depending on specific case, answer is yes. You need some proofs about that.

If you have, you can ask for it directly to hotel. If they refuse help to you, you can file a case at Mexican Federal Attorney for Consumers' office (Procuraduria Federal del Consumidor). (available on english language too).

If you need some additional help, I'm at your service.
