    Proving Negligence in a Hotel Personal Injury Case

    Proving that a hotel was negligent in its duty to protect the safety of guests is a necessary part of filing a personal injury claim against a hotel. Proving negligence entails providing evidence of a few different things: that the hotel had a responsibility to protect you from harm, that the hotel neglected to fulfill that responsibility, and that the hotel’s failure to fulfill this duty is directly linked to the injury that you sustained on the premises.

    The expectations for hotel must be reasonable, which means that they fall under common sense and are feasible for the hotel to accomplish. It is reasonable, for example, to expect a hotel to keep water within a moderate range of temperatures, store and prepare food in a safe way, maintain safe and functioning elevators and escalators, keep a safe and properly guarded pool and jacuzzi zone, provide safe and functioning equipment in the gym, properly light stairs and hallways, supply security equipment and personnel, and hire staff that has been vetted.

    You should be aware that guest rooms are not the only places hotels are obligated to protect. The hotel is liable for all areas on its premises: stairs and hallways, lobbies, meeting rooms and conference rooms, banquet halls, restaurants and bars, swimming pools and gyms, parking lots and shuttle busses, and all public spaces in and around the hotel.

    What to Do Following Your Injury in a Hotel

    Certain documentation and reporting are required to be able to file a personal injury claim against a hotel in Philadelphia. Making sure that you do all of the following steps will ensure that you will have the best chances possible of winning your case.

    1. Seek medical attention for your injury immediately. If you fail to get prompt medical care for your injury, you can hurt your credibility in the case and negatively impact your chances of winning the case. Share all of the details surrounding the injury with your doctor; tell them about the precise location within the hotel at which you suffered your injury, when it happened, and the events leading to the injury.
    2. Begin collecting evidence as soon as possible. Talk to witnesses and record their statements on paper or with an audio recording device. Talk to hotel employees, too. Take photos and record videos of the place at which you were injured. Write down all relevant details. Make a point to keep all of the documents related to the treatment of your injury and how it has affected your daily life. Keep and preserve all of the medical bills from the treatment of your injury, receipts of prescriptions that you take as a result of the injury, and records of lost wages.
    3. Immediately after the accident, file a report with the manager of the hotel, recounting as thoroughly as you can all of the details of the events and circumstances surrounding the accident.

    Hotel Personal Injury Claim Damages

    If all goes according to plan after you file a personal injury claim, you will be able to recover damages for your injury. Types of damages that can be recovered are:

    • Lost wages and future wages – If you missed work because you were recovering from your injury, you can recover the wages you lost. If your injuries have implications that last far into the future, then you will be able to recover the wages you will not be able to earn.

    ...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.

    THE REIFF FIRM IS AN OUTSTANDING LAW FIRM!

    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.
