Welk Resort Lawsuit
The suit was brought by Bill Phelan, a real estate agent from Ohio. He bought a property at the Welk Resort in 2021. According to Phelan, he had the intention of renting the property to someone else but when he discovered discrepancies in the information contained in his credit report, he decided to press charges. He claimed that the property’s condition and other problems had forced him to file the lawsuit.
The resort’s general counsel told Phelan that he could not comment on the case as it was before the courts.
Phelan also stated that he would be willing to attend court proceedings as long as the damage caused to the resort’s reputation is not covered by the resort’s insurance. Phelan is not the only person lodging a lawsuit against the resort. Since the lawsuit was filed under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, several other individuals have had similar issues with the property. While none of the plaintiffs have been able to get any monetary compensation from the resort’s insurance, their voices have been listened to by the court system.
A judge has yet to rule on the lawsuit.
It is expected that the lawsuit will be handled by an out-of-court settlement. This means that both sides will present their case to the judge in an attempt to resolve any differences amicably. If no settlement is reached, then either party is free to go to court. However, both sides must first abide by the terms of the settlement that have been reached through court proceedings.
There are several lawsuits that have been resolved at the W.H. Resort.
One such case involved the wrongful death of a forty-one-year-old woman. The wrongful death ruled that the W.H. Resort was liable for the death of the woman, due to its failure to make reasonable safety measures that could have prevented her from falling off the premises.
Another lawsuit involved a child who died after slipping and falling on a dirty and slippery floor of the W.H. Resort. An employee of the resort was found to be guilty of neglect in this case. He was subsequently fired. The parents of the deceased filed a lawsuit against the property.
Before a lawsuit can be filed, the defendants must be found to be liable.
If they are found to be at fault for a situation, then the property can be sued. If a settlement is reached and the amount is covered by insurance, then the lawsuit can be dismissed. If the case does go to court, a three-way lawsuit will be filed against the property, its owner, and anyone else found to be responsible. A jury will decide the case.
Because the cost of litigation is high, and there are many cases that end in settlements, the resort lawsuit process has become increasingly popular. Many people who feel wronged have gone ahead to file a lawsuit against the W.H. Resort. Even though the financial aspect of these cases may seem daunting, it is generally better than letting a situation go unsolved, especially if it means losing a property and being forced to buy another.
