Contact a lawyer at the Reiff Law Firm for more information about how you can build your claim against the hotel in the aftermath of an injury sustained during your stay.

    Types of Injuries That Can Happen in an Embassy Suites

    The variety of facilities and amenities offered by the Embassy Suites in Philadelphia may be what makes staying there so pleasant, but if these facilities and amenities malfunction or are not properly monitored — or if something merely goes unrepaired for a little bit too long — they can often cause serious injuries. The following are a few of the common injuries that guests of hotels suffer during their stays.

    Slips, Falls, and Burns

    Slipping and falling in a hotel can cause severe injuries, including cuts, bruises, broken bones, sprained wrists and ankles, knee and shoulder damage, spine and nerve damage, and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Falls in hotels can happen because of faulty handrails, improperly marked steps, poorly lit hallways or stairs, wet floors and slick surfaces, snowy or icy sidewalks, torn or rough carpeting, uneven walkways, and faulty or broken furniture.

    Burns are another common injury that happens in hotels. They can be the result of scalding water in a shower or tub, defective heaters or radiators, malfunctioning hair dryers or other appliances, and food that is too hot in a restaurant or eating area. If you receive chemical burns from cleaning products that staff members leave lying around, you may also have a personal injury case.

    Assault

    Assault that happens on the premises of a hotel is a personal injury case in that it often happens as the result of insufficient security measures. In some cases, this means that the hotel staff is negligent in their duties. Assault that happens as a result of negligent security may also be due to inattentive front desk staff who do not properly screen visitors. Alternatively, it could mean that security guards are not patrolling the premises as dutifully as they should.

    Other assault cases may be the result of negligent security on the premises, which may mean inadequate lighting in areas that guests pass through, broken or faulty locks on doors in guests’ rooms, or deficient security cameras or staff to monitor them. If a member of the hotel staff assaults a guest, then the hotel may be liable for failing to perform background checks or properly vet that staff member.

    Malfunctioning Equipment and Facilities

    Injuries in hotels can happen because of equipment and facilities that are not properly maintained. Injuries in hotels frequently happen on faulty and defective exercise equipment. Also, depending on circumstances surrounding the injury, it’s likely that an injury sustained in or near a pool or jacuzzi is the result of negligence on the part of the hotel and its staff.

    What to Do If You Get Hurt at an Embassy Suites

    If you plan on filing a personal injury claim as the result of your injury in an Embassy Suites in Philadelphia, you will need to prove negligence on the part of the hotel; this requires showing evidence that the hotel had a duty to protect you from harm, that the hotel did not perform its duty, and that specific and identifiable damages resulted from the hotel’s negligence. In order to build a case for yourself, there are a few steps you should take in the wake of your accident.

    Firstly, get medical attention immediately. Failing to get the proper medical care can hurt your chances of being able to successfully file a claim at a later date. Make sure that you tell your medical care provider about the circumstances surrounding your injury.

    Secondly, collect evidence related to the injury. Take photos and videos of the scene of the accident, record witness and employee statements about the accident, and record all relevant details. Record proof of damages as time passes following the accident, too: keep copies of medical bills, receipts for prescriptions, records of lost wages, and any other documentation related to your injury’s financial cost. Finally, file a report with the manager of the hotel.

    ...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.

    I was referred to the Reiff Law Firm by a friend who had previously been a client of the firm. My friend told me that the Reiff Firm had done an incredible job handling his case and treated him like family. My friend's recommendation was spot on. I am going to miss them now that my case is over. Attorney Reiff and Attorney Toczydlowski are excellent attorneys. They really care. They got me an INCREDIBLE RESULT. 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.
