Hotels and motels must take reasonable and necessary steps to ensure the safety of guests and visitors. Hotel owners and managers are liable when guests or visitors are injured under almost any circumstances on hotel or motel property. When negligence on the property causes injuries and death, property owners are responsible under premises liability laws.
The conditions at a hotel must be safe from dangers that are both seen and considered hidden. Whether fire hazards were not removed, proper food safety precautions were not taken or the locks installed on room doors were defective, the hotel may be liable for any damages and injuries suffered by guests or visitors.
An accident or incident that takes place in a hotel or motel as a direct result of an unsafe condition or premises can be grounds for us to file a hotel liability claim or lawsuit on your behalf.
You can even hold the hotel liable for crimes committed on its property in certain circumstances.
Protecting Your Right To Compensation And Maximizing Your Recovery
Our personal injury practice is run by lawyers who have decades of experience representing injury victims. Some of our lawyers used to be insurance defense lawyers, and they have intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the insurance companies that will strive to diminish your injury claim.
We protect your interests, your rights and the strength of your case when a hotel or motel fails in its duty to maintain safety and adequate security in situations such as:
- Violent crimes committed on hotel property (e.g., sexual assault, rape, armed robbery, theft, assault, etc.)
- Swimming accidents at hotel pools
- Slip-and-falls and trip-and-falls due to dangerous walkways
- Food poisoning
- Car accidents in the hotel parking lot
- Hotel fires
Even if the perpetrator of a crime on hotel property is not a guest or worker at the hotel, you have the right to seek compensation for injuries and losses.
