Hotel Accidents

Whether they are traveling for business or leisure, countless people stay in hotels with the expectation that they will be able to relax and perhaps enjoy a few amenities. The owners of hotels are expected to at least provide safe premises for their visitors, but people sometimes sustain extremely serious injuries because of incidents that may include, but are not limited to:

  • Elevator / Escalator Accidents
  • Food Poisoning
  • Fires
  • Gym Accidents
  • Negligent Security Leading to Violent Crimes (Theft, Rape, Sexual Assault)
  • Parking Lot Accidents
  • Slip and Fall Accidents
  • Swimming Pool Accidents
  • Sidewalk Accidents
  • Unsafe Furniture

The nature of the injuries a person suffers in these types of incidents depends on the circumstances. In some cases, victims may have broken bones or severe fractures that can involve costly medical expenses and may result in lost wages. Other incidents can cause much more catastrophic injuries such as paralysis or traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) that require several years or even a lifetime of rehabilitation.

While an accident in a hotel may have any one of several different causes, the individual or company that owns the establishment or manages it can be liable if unsafe conditions on the property contributed to or directly caused a person’s injuries. Depending on the type of incident that led to a person being injured, there may multiple additional parties that can be held legally responsible for a victim’s financial damages.

Hotels are often heavily insured, and lawyers and adjusters for the hotel’s insurance company will immediately seek ways to minimize the compensation paid for any personal injury claim. Oftentimes, victims are pressured to accept an initial settlement offer that may seem generous to some but rarely ever accounts for future medical and financial needs. In other cases, insurance companies will blame the victim’s injuries on his or her own negligence.
