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

Hotels offer a wide range of services, which is why accidents are prone to happen if they are not properly maintained. In the event that the property owner or employees of the hotel do not ensure that the premises are free from hazardous conditions, injuries can result. Some of the most typical causes of hotel accidents include the following:

  • Inadequate 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

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

The state of New York holds property owners to a certain standard of care. This means that they have a legal obligation to ensure their properties are safe for guests. This can be done by performing periodic checks to uncover any dangers and fixing them before they can cause injuries. In the event that these routine inspections are not conducted, and someone is injured as a result, the owner and staff can be held liable for negligence.

In order to obtain the compensation you deserve, you will have to demonstrate that this negligence occurred and resulted in your injuries. You will want to take photos and videos at the scene of the accident and document the hazardous conditions that caused your accident to occur. Furthermore, if any bystanders saw the accident happen, they may be able to verify your version of events. One of the most significant 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 providing proof of the origin and extent of your injuries. Furthermore, 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 skilled New York City hotel accident attorney on your side. With the help of an attorney, you can ensure that you have a viable personal injury claim. Our firm is ready to help.
