Accidents at Hotels

For those on a business trip or on vacation for pleasure, a hotel can provide a relaxing home-like atmosphere for patrons. However, similar to restaurants or shopping centers, hotels are required by law to adhere to certain safety standards. This means that they are obligated to maintain a safe atmosphere for their guests, free of hazards or conditions that may lead to injury.

Management, staff, or maintenance crews who engage in negligent behavior should be held accountable for the injuries that result from it. If you or someone you love has been injured at a hotel and would like to pursue legal action, contact the Phoenix personal injury lawyers of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.L.C. at 800-763-0964 today.

Examples of Hotel Accidents or Injuries

If a hotel is not maintained with optimal safety standards, the following accidents or injuries could occur.

  • Injuries resulting from a slip and fall
  • Burns from fire hazards, exposed wire, or other improperly maintained electronics
  • Collapsed beds, chairs, couches, tables, or benches
  • Acquisition of a food-borne illness from hotel-prepared meals
  • Harm due to lack of security on the premises
  • Abuse from staff members
  • Malfunctioning (or lack of) safety equipment
  • Injuries resulting from lack of visibility or proper lighting
  • Swimming pool injuries

If you sustain an accident away from home, you could be in a very compromising position. Because you are in an unfamiliar city, you may not have family or friends to call and may have to deal with your injuries entirely on your own. If the negligent behavior of others put you in this difficult position, physically or emotionally, you may have a right to collect compensation in a court of law.
