    Types of Injuries That Can Happen in the Rittenhouse Hotel

    While the facilities and amenities offered by the Rittenhouse Hotel allow guests to experience the maximum amount of comfort during their stays, they also increase the likelihood of injury happening on the premises. Injuries can happen in all areas of the hotel, including individual rooms, hallways and stairwells, pools and gyms, restaurants and bars, meeting areas and conference rooms, banquet halls, parking lots and shuttle busses, the lobby, and other public spaces. The following injuries are possible reasons for a personal injury lawsuit against the Rittenhouse Hotel.

    Slips, Falls, and Burns

    A slip or fall on any surface in a hotel can cause damage to nerves, spines, and joints; broken bones; sprained wrists and ankles; and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Parts of the facility that have not been properly maintained (such as poorly lit stairwells, wet floors, snowy or icy sidewalks, torn carpeting, uneven walkways, or faulty furniture) are common causes of these injuries in hotels.

    It’s also common for hotel guests to suffer from burns during their stays. In individual rooms, scalding water that comes out of faucets in the bathroom or malfunctioning heaters, radiators, or hair dryers may burn guests. It’s also possible for hotel guests to be burnt by chemicals in cleaning products that are left in rooms by housekeeping staff.


    Assault on the premises of a hotel may be the result of one of two types of negligence: negligent staff or negligent security. Assault that happens because of negligent staff may mean that the front desk has not done a proper job of monitoring who enters the hotel, or that security personnel was negligent in their patrolling of the premises. Assault that happens because of negligent security means that the equipment used to keep the premises safe (security cameras, locks on doors, proper lighting in stairwells and parking lots) is not extensive enough or does not function properly.

    Assault that is committed by hotel employees can be a form of negligence on the part of the hotel itself for failing to perform a background check on the employee.

    Drowning or Pool Injuries

    If a guest drowns while swimming in the hotel’s pool, it is likely that it happened because the hotel did not properly employ lifeguards, or because the deck was not properly illuminated.

    Bed Bugs

    Contracting bed bugs during a hotel stay often means that the hotel did not properly clean the room and the objects in it. Contracting bed bugs itself is not a personal injury, but the infections, anemia, and other health problems that result from bed bugs are a form of personal injury.

    Food Poisoning

    Salmonella, E. coli, and norovirus may be contracted by eating improperly prepared food in a hotel bar or restaurant. If you contract any of these bacteria by eating food in a hotel, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit.

    Proving the Negligence of the Rittenhouse Hotel in a Personal Injury Case

    Winning a personal injury case against a hotel requires proving that the hotel acted negligently. You will need to use evidence to prove that the hotel had a duty to protect you from harm, that they failed to perform this duty, and that your injury was a direct result of that failure.

    If you were injured during your stay at a hotel, there are a few actions that you should take following the injury to increase your chances of winning your lawsuit. Firstly, seek medical attention for your injury immediately. Failing to do so may hurt your chances of winning your case. Secondly, record evidence related to the injury — take photos and/or videos of the scene and speak with witnesses and record their statements. You should also make sure that you keep records of the medical bills you pay and the wages you lose as a result of your injury. In addition, make sure that you contact the hotel manager and file a report about your injury with them.

    ...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.
