    Ways That You Can Be Injured in a Marriott Hotel

    A variety of facilities and amenities are part of what makes a stay at a hotel a special experience, but it is often these same features that make a hotel liable to injure guests. If these facilities and amenities are not maintained properly, they can cause serious injury to the same guests that are meant to enjoy them. It’s possible for guests of the Marriott Hotel in Philadelphia to suffer from the following injuries during their stay:

    Bed bugs

    Bed bugs, while seemingly a mere nuisance, can cause serious health problems, such as infections and anemia. If a hotel guest contracts bed bugs during their stay, it means that their room and the objects in it were not properly cleaned.

    Slips and falls

    Faulty handrails, torn or worn carpeting and rugs, improperly marked or poorly lit stairwells, slick surfaces and wet floors, uneven walkways, broken and unrepaired furniture, and outdoor spaces that haven’t been cleared of snow or ice in a timely manner are all factors that can lead to a slip or fall in a hotel. Slips and falls can carry severe health consequences such as damage to the spine and nerves, broken bones, sprained wrists and ankles, damage to shoulders and knees, lacerations, bruises, and traumatic brain injuries.

    Burns

    It is also possible for hotel guests to suffer severe injuries in the form of burns. Scalding water in the shower or bath, heat-making appliances (hair dryers, irons, coffee makers, etc.) that malfunction, deficient fireplaces or radiators, or food that has been heated above the recommended temperature in a hotel restaurant are forms of negligence that can cause injury to hotel guests.

    Assault

    Negligent security is often the cause of assault in a hotel. This can mean that hotel staff failed to fully perform their duty to maintain the security of the hotel, such as if the front desk staff did not properly screen people entering the hotel to make sure that they are guests, or if the security guards are not diligent as they guard the premises.

    Negligent security could also mean that the hotel is not maintaining proper security equipment in the hotel. This could mean that there are broken or faulty locks on rooms, inadequate lighting in common areas, or deficient or sparse security cameras. The assault of guests by hotel staff is a related but different issue. Assault that is committed by hotel staff is another form of negligence in that the hotel most likely did not perform background checks on that member of the staff.

    Food Poisoning

    Hotel restaurants, despite being places to relax and enjoy food and drinks, can cause severe food poisoning for hotel guests. If a hotel fails to properly handle a meal and causes food poisoning related to salmonella, E. coli, or norovirus, then it may be considered a case of negligence, and you may be able to file a personal injury claim.

    Malfunctioning Equipment or Facilities

    Equipment and facilities that are not properly maintained can cause serious injuries to hotel guests. An elevator or escalator that is not properly maintained can cause harm to those using it — an elevator can trap guests for extended periods of time, and escalators can leave scrapes, cuts, and burns. Swimming pools and hot tubs that are not maintained properly can also cause severe injuries. If a pool area is not guarded and someone drowns, or if the wrong chemicals are used and they burn a guest, it can be considered negligence and result in a personal injury lawsuit. Faulty or improperly maintained gyms can be a form of negligence as well.

    ...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.
