    What Types of Accidents and Injuries Happen at Hotels?

    When accidents are caused by property defects, such as slippery floors or broken railings, they can give rise to claims known as “premises liability” claims. The most common type of premises liability claim is a slip and fall accident, which can be caused by waxed floors, spilled beverages, damaged flooring, broken handrails, inadequate lighting, icy sidewalks, or other indoor and outdoor hazards. Hotel accidents can also be caused by electrical hazards, fire hazards, negligent security, infestations by pests and insects, or other health and safety issues.

    Equipped with more than 34 years of litigation experience, our hotel accident attorneys handle all types of injury claims involving negligent hotels and hotel staff. We can help you aggressively pursue compensation for any of the following types of injuries, in addition to other injuries not listed below:

    • Back and Spinal Injuries
    • Bone Fractures
    • Bruises (Contusions)
    • Burn Injuries
    • Cuts (Lacerations)
    • Facial Injuries
    • Head and Brain Injuries
    • Permanent Scarring
    • Sprains and Strains
    • Wrongful Death

    Are Hotels Liable for Guest Injuries or Deaths?

    Hotels, hotel employees, third parties such as contractors, and other parties can be held liable for the injury, death, or sexual assault of a guest or visitor if their negligence caused or contributed to the accident. Negligence is the failure to meet certain standards, resulting in a death or injury that could have been prevented.

    For instance, negligent property maintenance can lead to defects and hazards that later cause injuries. To use a common example, guests are often injured by slipping on floors that were not properly cleaned, installed, or marked with appropriate warning signs. Negligent maintenance can lead to all sorts of dangerous property hazards, such as loose or uneven flooring, unstable handrails, fire or electrical hazards, leaks and spills, malfunctioning elevators, or protruding nails and staples.

    In order to show that a hotel was negligent and that you should be compensated for the resulting injuries, our attorneys will work diligently to prove four elements of your case:

    1. You were owed a duty of care. Hotels are held to high regulatory standards and owe what is called a “duty of care” to visitors, guests, and residents.
    2. The hotel or other parties breached that duty. In other words, the hotel somehow failed to meet proper standards in terms of guest protection and safety.
    3. The breach caused an accident. For example, you might have had a slip and fall accident because the hotel breached its duty to clean and inspect all areas in a timely fashion.
    4. You sustained harm, or “damages.” You suffered some sort of harm because of the accident, such as being injured or incurring expenses.

    ...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.
