Holding Hotels Liable for Accident Injuries

Our culture thrives on tourism and travel. The American Hotel and Lodging Association reports that we spend more than $2.2 billion a day on traveling. This generates approximately $813 billion in sales. Hotel stays account for most of the costs of traveling, whether it is for business or pleasure. Hotels generally take extensive measures to make their property attractive in order to appeal to tourists. Unfortunately, these amenities also come with a great risk of accident injury to hotel guests and employees.

If you or a loved one has suffered an accident injury in a hotel, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. An experienced New York City hotel accident attorney can protect your legal rights and help you obtain the full compensation possible.

Common Types of Hotel Accidents

Hotel accidents and injuries can occur in many different ways. Some of the most common injuries occur as a result of the following:

  • Slip and fall accidents in the hotel room or in a common area of the hotel
  • Trip and falls down the stairs
  • Accidents in elevators or escalators
  • Hot tub or pool accidents and drowning
  • Accidents caused by broken or defective furniture
  • Food poisoning
  • Injuries caused by bed bugs or other unsanitary hotel conditions
  • Burns or scarring from fires, scalding hot water or irons
  • Exposure to other toxic chemicals and conditions
  • Assaults due to lack of proper security

Holding the Hotel Liable For Your Injuries

Hotel owners and managers are generally held to a high standard of duty of care when it comes to the safety of their guests. This means that the owners and management teams are expected to take reasonable measures to make sure their premises are safe for their patrons. This higher standard of care extends to all premises of the establishment, including:

  • Common areas
  • Guest rooms
  • Hotel owned shuttles or buses
  • Garages and parking lots
  • Meeting rooms
  • Pools
  • Fitness centers
  • Spas
  • Restaurants

If a hotel breaches this duty by failing to take a reasonable measure to ensure the safety of their premises, the hotel may be held liable for any resulting injuries to a guest. Injured hotel guests may be entitled to:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Loss of wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Any other out of pocket expenses incurred as a result of the accident

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
