    When reserving a room at a hotel, you likely do not expect that you will depart from your hotel with a serious injury. Unfortunately, there are several ways that a patron at a hotel could be injured if the property owner is careless regarding safety protocols. However, you may have a claim against a hotel if you were injured while staying at their establishment. If you or a family member was seriously injured while staying at a Best Western hotel, contact an experienced Philadelphia hotel injury attorney immediately.

    Common Hotel-Related Accidents

    A hotel is supposed to be a venue of peace and relaxation for its visitors. This notion is shattered if a hotel patron is injured because the property owner neglected important safety issues for their property. For example, if you suffer an eye injury due to high chemical levels in the hotel pool, this is an issue that could have been avoided with proper maintenance. Unfortunately, some hotels will place profits over the comfort of their visitors.

    The following is a list of hotel-related accidents that often occur in poorly operated hotels.

    Assaults

    Hotel owners have a duty to ensure that their guests are safe from property hazards and on some occasions safe from assaults by other parties. For example, if a hotel has a poorly lit parking lot in an area where the crime rate is higher than average, this may encourage the commission of an assault.

    Additionally, if a hotel fails to perform adequate background checks on its employees, they could hire an individual with a propensity for violence. If a patron was attacked by an employee or assaulted due to inadequate safety measures, a hotel could be held liable for their injuries.

    Slip and Falls

    Slip and fall accidents are when a person trips and suffers a serious injury due to property defects they were not advised about. For example, if a hotel had a stairwell that contained broken steps, an unsuspecting visitor could trip and sustain a head or back injury while traversing the steps.

    A property owner has a duty to inform guests of property defects that are not obvious. Failure to do so could result in being held liable for injuries a patron sustained in a slip and fall. Slip and fall accidents can result in a number of injuries:

    • Back or spine injuries
    • Bone fractures
    • Brain or head injuries
    • Sprained or twisted ankles

    This is not an exhaustive list. If you suffered a serious injury as a result of a slip and fall accident, you should contact an experienced attorney.

    Food Poisoning

    Many hotels will offer their guests a complimentary breakfast every morning. This is often a welcome amenity unless the food is improperly prepared. Visitors at hotels often do not suspect that their hotel did not use sufficient safety measures when preparing their food. As a result, these visitors may contract food poisoning.

    Food poisoning can last for several days, and in some cases, could result in the development of other dangerous medical conditions. If you believe that your hotel was responsible for your bout of food poisoning, you should consider filing a claim against them.

    Bed Bug Bites

    Bed bugs are often an unfortunate part of staying at a hotel with unsanitary conditions. Bed bugs are reddish-brown insects that tend to infest the dark crevices of furniture like a bed. These insects will hide during sunlight hours and appear at night to drain blood from unsuspecting victims. Due to how tiny bed bugs are, a person can suffer dozens of bed bug bites from staying a single night at a hotel with an infestation.

    On top of leaving a person with large welts, a bed bug bite may also cause a person to develop other healthcare conditions due to the transmission of parasites. You should always check your bed and furniture thoroughly before deciding to sleep at a hotel. Even one night in an infested room could lead to bed bugs infesting your luggage and clothes.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.

Most importantly they were there for me during some extremely dark and difficult times in my life. I highly recommend the Reiff Law Firm to anyone seeking the very best legal representation for injuries they suffered in an accident.
