What are the typical causes of a hotel accident in New York?

Hotels provide a wide range of services beyond just a room to stay in. Because of this, accidents are likely to happen if they are not adequately maintained. In the event that the property owner or employees of the hotel do not make sure that the premises are free from dangerous conditions, injuries can happen. Some of the most common causes of hotel accidents include:

  • Poor security
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Escalator accidents
  • Elevator accidents
  • Gym equipment accidents
  • Unsanitary conditions, such as bed bugs
  • Parking lot/garage accidents
  • Food poisoning
  • Hot tub accidents

If you were injured in a hotel as a result of any of the above, give Swerling Law a call today.

Can I obtain financial compensation for a hotel accident in New York?

It is important to recognize that the state of New York holds property owners to a certain standard of care. This suggests that they have a legal responsibility to ensure their properties are safe for guests. This can be accomplished by conducting periodic checks to discover any dangers and fixing them before they can result in injuries. If these routine inspections are not fulfilled, and someone is injured as a result, the owner and staff can be held responsible for negligence.

To obtain the compensation you deserve, you will have to show that this negligence happened and caused your injuries. You will want to take pictures and videos at the scene of the accident and document the dangerous conditions that caused your accident to occur. Also, if any bystanders saw the accident happen, they may be able to confirm your version of events. One of the most important things you can do in the event of an accident is to seek medical attention. By going to the hospital after an accident, you can ensure that your injuries are properly treated by a medical professional, while also supplying proof of the origin and extent of your injuries. You will want to ask a doctor for a copy of any relevant medical documents. You can use this in your claim as evidence.

You will also want a professional New York City hotel accident attorney on your side. With the assistance of an attorney, you can ensure that you have a possible personal injury claim. Our firm is prepared to help you obtain the compensation you need and deserve.
