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
  • Parking lot and parking garage injuries
  • 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.

When A Fall In A Hotel Bathtub Or Shower Leads To Injury

Slips and falls in bathtubs and showers often result in broken bones, a concussion or in the worst cases, life-altering injuries. While wet surfaces in bathtubs and showers are often slippery by their nature, there are many reasons why a hotel may be at fault. Common causes of slips and falls in a bathtub or shower include:

  • Inadequate lighting
  • Failure to install a grab bar
  • No non-slip mat outside the tub/shower
  • Poor cleaning that leaves a slippery residue behind
  • Failure to install non-slip surfaces in the tub/shower

If you suffered an injury after falling in a bathtub or shower at a hotel, we can help determine whether you have grounds for a lawsuit. We will do a comprehensive review of how your injury happened and hold the hotel accountable if they are at fault.
