Washington D.C. is a hub for travelers from near and far, whether they are in the area for business or for fun. Often, these individuals stay in hotels for the duration of their trip. The majority of the time, hotel stays are relatively pleasant and uneventful. However, this doesn’t mean that hotel accidents don’t happen. If a hotel is negligent in maintaining a safe property that is free of any hazards, guests can become seriously injured. A person who has been injured in a hotel accident may want to consider their legal options to see whether they are eligible to recover damages for the cost of medical bills, lost wages due to time out of work, among other burdens that were caused by the accident.
Some of the most commonly seen hotel accidents include stairwell accidents, elevator or escalator accidents, swimming pool accidents, injuries due to defective gym equipment, unsafe walkways, inadequate security, food poisoning, and more. Of course, just like any other personal injury case, the injured party will have to prove that the hotel’s negligence resulted in their injuries.
The hotel is legally responsible for maintaining safe premises for their guests. When they fail to do so, someone can become very seriously injured. If you have been injured in an accident at a Washington D.C. hotel due to staff negligence, contact our firm today.
