Injured At a Tropical Resort?

Injured At A Resort

March Break is coming!

Traveling abroad can be an exhilarating experience, offering the chance to explore new cultures and landscapes. However, when vacations turn tragic due to accidents at foreign resorts, victims and their families can find themselves navigating unfamiliar legal territory. If you or a loved one has been injured at a resort outside Canada, it’s crucial to understand your legal rights and the potential for seeking justice and compensation through the Ontario legal system.

A recent ruling in Ontario, Innis v. Sunwing Travel Group, underscores our courts’ willingness to assume jurisdiction over cases involving incidents at foreign resorts, especially when there is a significant connection to Ontario. In this case, the court found a real and substantial connection to Ontario because the vacation package, which ultimately led to the tragic incident, was purchased in Ontario from a company based in the province. This decision emphasizes that Ontario courts may consider cases involving foreign incidents if key elements, such as contractual agreements, are tied to Ontario.

This ruling is a powerful reminder of the importance of consulting with a knowledgeable legal team if you’ve experienced injury or loss at a resort outside Canada. Our firm specializes in personal injury law and has a deep understanding of the complexities involved in cross-jurisdictional cases.
