Causes of Hotel Accidents in Maryland
No matter how safe a hotel may seem, there is always the possibility of danger. With such a large and diverse property to maintain, staff may overlook a potential hazard or may not get to it before it is too late. Some of the many causes of hotel accidents include the following hazards:
- Faulty elevators
- Faulty escalators
- Inadequate security
- Inadequate lighting
- Uneven or unlit sidewalks
- Unsafe stairways
- Faulty gym equipment
- Swimming pools
- Parking lots or garages
- Unsanitary conditions
Fulfilling the Burden of Proof
After being injured in a hotel accident, you may wish to consider your legal options and take action against the hotel management for your overwhelming medical bills and other burdens. It is important to note that if you wish to take legal action against a hotel, you must fulfill the burden of proof. This means that you must provide evidence that hotel management knew or reasonably should have known about the hazards that caused you to become injured and failed to fix them before you were hurt. Therefore, before leaving the scene of the accident, it is important to take pictures and videos of the dangerous conditions, obtain contact information of any witnesses, inform hotel management of the accident, and seek immediate medical attention to document your injuries.
Recovering Damages After a Hotel Accident
If you were injured in a hotel accident, you may be faced with a number of financial and non-financial burdens. You may be entitled to compensation for the hardships that you have faced as a result of the accident. An experienced attorney can fight on your behalf to recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, lost future wages, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, and more.
