Thanksfor taking the time to read this.
Over the summer I was staying in a Hotel / Hostel in Miami Beach FL. Moving from Missouri, it was a cost efficent way of searching for an apartment. My SUV along with basically everything I had in my name (clothes, electronics ect...) was stolen by the person that worked at the front desk of the Hotel. In addition, that person stole my identity and ran back account over 15000 negative. That person had a background and prior warrants out for forgory and other fraudulant activity. My insurance isn't covering since the vechicale was recovered but repoed by the bank.
Question: Can I sue the Hotel/Hostel for negligence in the hiring of this person with the criminal background? What kind of damages could I expect to recover? What are major determining issues?
Any help anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated.
