Disney Could Face Multi-Million Dollar Lawsuit in Tragic Alligator Case…

The tragic death of 2-year-old Lane Graves, who was snatched by an alligator at a Disney resort, left many wondering if the resort could have prevented such an attack.

Matt Morgan, an Orlando attorney who has litigated negligence cases against Florida theme parks, says that the Graves family may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the Walt Disney Corporation.

“The Walt Disney Corporation has a duty to warn their hotel guests of any dangers that they either know about or should know about,” Morgan tells PEOPLE.

The toddler from Elkhorn, Nebraska, was wading in the shallows of the Seven Seas Lagoon at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa around 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday when an alligator grabbed him and pulled him under the water.

His father, Matt Graves, rushed into the water and sustained lacerations on his hand in an attempt to fight off the alligator. He then summoned a lifeguard from a nearby pool, who was also unable to rescue the boy.
