A Hotel Accident May Be Cause For An Injury Claim
People visit Cleveland for a wide range of reasons: business; healthcare; tourist attractions; sports events; family events and more. Many visitors stay at hotels, of course. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for hotel guests to suffer injuries due to hotel negligence.
The hotel’s management team is required to do what is reasonably possible to protect guests from foreseeable harm. Whether an unsafe condition was preventable often becomes a focus of dispute when injuries occur at hotels.
Hotels Have A High Duty Of Care
Our attorneys investigate cases carefully and know how to uncover evidence that reveals a property management team knew of, or should have known about, an existing unsafe condition and failed to address it.
Common hotel injuries include:
- Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Falls in bathtubs and showers
- Food poisoning
- Dangerous steps or balconies
- Dangerous walkways, sidewalks, parking lots, or lobbies
- Falls due to torn or worn out carpeting
- Insufficient security or lighting
Maintaining a safe environment for guests is a primary responsibility of the hotel’s management. But sometimes fall short. When accidents and injuries occur, it is smart to contact experienced personal injury lawyers who will help determine if you have a valid injury claim.
