Types of Hotel Accident and Injury Lawsuits We Handle
There are many ways that a hotel accident can injure a guest. Accidents and injuries can occur in guests’ private quarters, or in shared areas of the hotel such as hallways and dining areas.
Hotel accidents are often caused by negligent maintenance, cleaning, inspection, or some combination of all three, which can create extremely hazardous conditions for guests. For example, the failure to clean leaks or spills, or to set out appropriate warnings or barriers, can lead to a preventable hotel slip and fall accident. During the winter, hotel sidewalk slip and fall accidents can be caused by the negligent failure to salt or remove ice, snow, and sleet in a timely fashion. Guest injuries can also be caused by product defects (such as elevator malfunctions), hotel fires, or assaults and attacks that take place on the hotel’s premises. Types of Sofitel hotel accident claims we handle at the Reiff Law Firm include:
- Hotel assaults and attacks
- Hotel elevator accidents
- Hotel gym accidents
- Hotel lobby accidents
- Hotel parking lot accidents
- Hotel restaurant accidents
- Hotel room accidents
- Hotel slip and fall accidents
