Accidents Can Happen at Any Hotel or Resort

Accidents are likely to happen at a wide variety of hotels and resorts throughout Georgia. Unfortunately, some of these accidents are unavoidable.

Slips and falls are among some of the most common kinds of accidents at hotels. Several slipping and tripping hazards may be present in hotel lobbies, pool areas, and outdoor spaces, including:

  • Wet and slippery floors
  • Cluttered walkways
  • Poor lighting
  • Exposed cords and wiring
  • Wrinkled and lifted rugs and carpeting
  • Cracked pavement
  • Loose or defective handrails and banisters
  • Water and ice from inclement weather

Along with falls, hotel visitors may experience other incidents resulting in physical harm, including hotel fires and elevator accidents. At hotel and resort pools with no lifeguards, swimming pool accidents are also common. Anyone can drown, but children are most at risk. Every year, there are an average of 4,000 unintentional drownings.

Negligent security is also a substantial issue in hotels. Assaults, burglaries, abductions, and other crimes regularly take place at hotels, as these locations are known for criminal activity. 

If you have a negative experience at a hotel caused by another’s negligence, it’s important to speak with a personal injury attorney right away. A lawyer can determine whether you have a valid claim and help you on your path to financial recovery. 

Your Short Hotel Stay Can Have Long-Term Consequences

Injuries are not the types of souvenirs you want to take home, but they may be what you’re left with after a negative hotel experience. Depending on the details of the incident, you may be on a long road to recovery with the possibility of lasting effects on your well-being.

Injuries common to hotel incidents include, but are not limited to:

  • Burns
  • Fractures
  • Lacerations
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Back and spinal injuries
  • Internal injuries

Severe injuries can leave you open to the potential of suffering long-term health issues, including infections, cognitive issues, and paralysis. Your hotel injury attorney can assign a monetary value to your injuries, as well as past and future expenses, to pursue financial recovery. A favorable settlement can help you afford the care you need.

Who Is Responsible for Accidents at Hotels and Resorts?

When a negligent party is responsible for your injuries, holding them accountable can help you recover compensation for your harm and related losses. Therefore, liability is one of the essential parts of your claim. 

Accidents on hotel property are usually the responsibility of the party in charge of the hotel, such as hotel owners or managers. These parties must keep the premises safe and free from potential hazards.

As a guest at a hotel, you are considered an invitee. Invitees are legally allowed on another’s property, typically for business or financial purposes. Property owners and occupiers owe invitees the highest duty of care to warn of potential dangers and address any hazards that may result in harm.

Your injury attorney can collect necessary evidence and establish the property owner’s liability. Successfully proving liability can get you one step closer to obtaining the financial recovery you deserve for your hotel injuries.

Seeking Compensation for Hotel Injuries

When you’re injured at a hotel, you will want to consult with a qualified injury attorney as soon as possible. A lawyer can review the details of your accident and figure out the best way to pursue compensation. Usually, this involves filing a personal injury lawsuit against the hotel and other responsible parties. 

Your damages can help you cover the costs of your medical expenses and other related losses. You may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical expenses and rehabilitation
  • Lost earnings
  • Emotional distress
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Disability

Determining how much your case is worth is critical to ensuring you receive the fairest possible settlement. Your injury attorney can assign a value to your claim and do everything necessary to reach a favorable case result on your behalf.
