    Damages You Can Receive from a Hotel Personal Injury Claim

    After you suffer an injury while staying at a Holiday Inn, you will likely be eligible to collect damages for the injuries you’ve suffered. You can be compensated for the amount of money that you’ve spent dealing with your injuries. Following an injury suffered at a Holiday Inn, you are able to collect damages for the following costs:

    • Medical bills – This includes past medical bills and ones that are expected to be incurred in the future. Hospital bills, prescription costs, family physician bills, lab fees, surgery costs, physical therapy bills, and pain management treatment are all able to be covered as part of damages in a hotel personal injury lawsuit. Damages can include future payments for permanent disability as well.
    • Lost wages and earnings – Wages that you would have earned at work if you hadn’t suffered an injury can be recovered as damages, as long as you can provide documentation about your rate of pay before the accident. In some cases, it is possible to recover the value of lost earning capacity or your ability to earn money in the future as part of damages, but that is more difficult to prove.
    • Permanent disfigurement – If your body has been permanently changed as a result of an injury that occurred in a hotel—amputation, major scarring from burns and cuts, loss of motor function, or contortions due to nerve damage—then you may be able to recover damages for it.
    • Pain and suffering – The personal cost of pain and suffering may be included as part of a damages claim as a result of an injury that occurs at a hotel. The amount that is given is determined based on the types of medications that a victim uses to deal with their pain and the type and severity of their injury,
    • Loss of consortium or companionship – A victim’s spouse or family member can file a loss of consortium or companionship claim to recover the cost of their pain and suffering, shock and mental anguish, and emotional distress suffered at the hand of their spouse or family member’s injury.

    How to Prove Hotel Negligence in a Personal Injury Case

    In order to win a personal injury claim against a hotel in Philadelphia, you will need to prove that your injury happened because of the hotel’s negligence. You will need to show—with evidence—that the hotel had a duty to protect you, as a guest, from harm, that they failed to perform this duty, and that their failure to perform their duty directly resulted in an injury to you.

    When it comes to the duty that hotels have to provide a safe space for people, it must be reasonable. Reasonable expectation of a hotel includes controlling insect infestations, maintaining effective and efficient security, maintaining the safety of elevators and escalators, keeping a safe pool and jacuzzi area, maintaining the safety of gym equipment, serving safely stored and prepared food and drinks, making sure that water in showers and sinks is a healthy temperature, and hiring staff that have a low likelihood of causing harm to guests, among other things.

    It should also be noted that the hotel’s obligation to provide a safe space for guests extends beyond the hotel rooms and includes restrooms, restaurants, parking lots, shuttle busses, meeting and banquet halls, swimming pools, fitness areas, and all public spaces.

    Proving the negligence of a hotel in relation to your injury requires certain reporting and documentation. In the aftermath of an injury that you sustain in a hotel, make sure you do the following things so that you can build a proper case for yourself:

    1. Get medical attention as soon as possible. Your chances of winning your case can be hurt if you fail to get proper medical attention. Furthermore, be sure to give all of the details about your injury to the medical professionals that provide you with care; include facts about when it happened, where exactly in the hotel it happened, and how it happened.
    2. Collect relevant evidence. Take photos and/or videos of the area in which your injury occurred, write down or record statements from witnesses and hotel employees, and write down anything that will help you build a case for the negligence of the hotel. As time goes on, you will need to keep records of how the injury impacts your life. This means that you should keep copies of medical bills, prescription receipts, and lost wage records.
    3. File a report with the hotel’s manager.

    ...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.

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.
