Holding Property Owners & Managers Accountable
Hotels have a specific legal responsibility to protect their guests from personal injury. They must, for instance, keep their parking lots, lobbies, restaurants, and rooms clean and free from unreasonably dangerous conditions. If you have been injured in an accident at a hotel, you must show that the hotel breached its duty of care towards its customers in order to recover damages. To make matters worse, navigation through a personal injury lawsuit against a hotel, especially if the hotel is outside your state of residence, can be confusing and stressful.

Types of Hotel Injuries

- If the floors are not cleaned properly, you may suffer from a slip or trip and fall accident
- Dim lighting over staircases may increase the likelihood of a hotel accident
- Damaged or dilapidated railings on staircases are dangerous may also lead to a personal injury
- Inadequate fencing near a swimming pool is another possible cause of personal injury within a hotel
- Potholes, cracks, or uneven sidewalks and parking lots can cause accidents, causing injury or property damage
- Bathtubs, jacuzzis, or pools that are not properly slip resistant
Hotels have a duty to provide a safe place for guests to visit and stay. Their staff should keep the hotel floors clean and management should make sure that the hotel is well maintained. Negligence on the part of the hotel and its staff can cause significant injuries. If you have experienced a hotel accident, you may be entitled to compensation if it can be determined that the hotel breached its duty of care.
A personal injury lawsuit against a hotel can be difficult because the hotel management may try to pin the blame on you. The insurance company may also pressure you to accept a settlement that does not cover the entire cost of your damages. This can be frustrating, especially when you have mounting medical bills. At Hammond Law Firm, LLC, we believe in handling the entirety of your case so that you can focus on a speedy recovery from your injuries.
