Insufficient safety at a hotel could be grounds for a civil claim

On behalf of Goldstein Goldstein

When you stay at a New Jersey hotel, you have a reasonable expectation to safety while on the premises. However, accidents and incidents do happen, and if you experienced a threat to your well-being or suffered an injury in an accident while staying at a hotel, you could have grounds for a civil claim.

When issues beyond your control, such as wet floors, dangerous stairs or other factors, lead to personal injury, the hotel could be liable for what you suffered. It can be beneficial to seek an understanding of your legal options, which could include pursuing compensation for your pain and suffering.

Premises liability and hotel accidents

Determining who is at fault for an accident involving dangerous premises or negligent maintenance can be difficult. While you may assume that your clumsiness is to blame for what happened to you, the hotel could be liable if any of the following apply to your case:

  • You suffered slip-and-fall injuries in an accident caused by wet floors or other unmarked hazards.
  • You may have a case if the hotel should have known about the danger or should have taken steps to warn guests of a potential danger.
  • You may have grounds to file a claim if it is evident that negligent maintenance is to blame for your accident and injuries.

You may be uncertain of what factors played a role in your accident and if you should move forward with a civil claim, but it can be useful to still seek an evaluation of your case. If you do have grounds to pursue a premises liability claim, quick action is necessary to preserve evidence and build a strong case.

Is the hotel responsible my safety outside?

An attack or assault is a terrifying occurrence, and the scars from these types of incidents often run much deeper than just physical injuries. If you experienced this type of trauma while in the hotel parking lot or walking on the premises of the hotel, the owner could potentially be liable.

In some circumstances, the hotel may still be liable for the incident that left you physically and emotionally scarred. If the owner should have anticipated the potential for danger or criminal activity or failed to provide sufficient security measures or warnings, you may have grounds to file a claim for damages and emotional suffering related to your attack.
