If you are staying at a hotel, whether you are visiting a city or town for work or pleasure, you assume that your experience will be a pleasant one and your accommodations will be as you expected. Unfortunately, accidents that cause injuries can happen.
Hotel accidents can involve everything from slip and falls, bed bugs, foodborne illnesses, and even assaults. At the Law Offices of Charles R. Gueli, we are skilled in handling personal injury cases involving hotel negligence. Our Nassau County personal injury attorney can aggressively pursue full compensation for our clients.
Proving That a Hotel Was Negligent
To hold a hotel legally responsible for injuries which occurred on the premises, you will need to show that the hotel was somehow negligent. This means establishing that the hotel breached a duty owed to a customer who was injured on the premises, and that the breach of duty caused the injury.
Common hotel duties include:
- Repair hotel defects
- Maintain adequate security
- Maintain adequate lighting
- Maintain stairs and elevators
- Maintain locks on hotel rooms
- Control insect infestation
- Exercise reasonable care in hiring hotel staff
So when a hotel does not inspect the premises, fail to keep the premises reasonably safe, or fails to warn of hazardous conditions, it has breached its duty to guests. Keep in mind, it must be reasonably foreseeable to the hotel owner and/or staff members that his or her actions could cause injury to the plaintiff. The hotel can also be held liable for the harmful actions of employees.
