If you were hurt while staying in a hotel, who is to blame?

When you check into a hotel, you do so with the assumption that you will not be facing any unnecessary risks or issues that could compromise your safety. Hotels should be safe and clean, so in the event of a slip-and-fall or other type of accident, you may be unsure who is to blame or what you can do about it. If you were hurt while staying in a hotel, you may be a victim of circumstances beyond your control. 

You may be unsure of what caused your accident or what you can do to get necessary care and financial support. If you believe you could have grounds for a civil claim against the hotel due to the circumstances of your accident, you will find it helpful to seek an evaluation of your case. You may have a rightful claim to financial compensation.

Is the hotel responsible? 

In certain circumstances, a hotel may be liable for dangerous property conditions that led to the harm of a guest. The management of the hotel is responsible for identifying hazards that one could reasonably assume were potentially harmful. In order to have a successful premises liability claim, you must be able to prove the hotel was negligent by allowing certain hazards or failing to warn guests.

Whether you were hurt by a hazard in your room, a dangerous stairwell or a slip-and-fall accident in the lobby, you may find it beneficial to explore the possibility of seeking recompense through a premises liability claim. You may be able to do this by proving the following elements:

  • You were a guest of the hotel, patron of hotel restaurants or other facilities on the premises.
  • The hotel breached its duty to the safety and well-being of its guests.
  • This breach of duty was the reason for your accident and the direct cause of your injuries.
  • You are suffering financial harm because of this accident. 

By proving the above, you may be able to claim compensation for your losses after an accident in a hotel.

Taking immediate action

It is beneficial and important to take immediate after a premises liability incident in a hotel. By taking quick action, you can ensure important evidence necessary for your case is preserved. If you are unsure of the appropriate course of action after a hotel accident, you are still entitled to a complete explanation of your legal options and rights as an accident victim.
