Hotel and Motel Accidents

When staying at a hotel or motel, guests expect to have a hazard-free experience. Unfortunately, poor or improper maintenance can lead to dangerous conditions and cause serious injuries. Common accidents that can occur in a hotel or motel include:

  1. Slip and fall accidents;
  2. Trip and fall accidents; and
  3. Accidents related to wear and tear, malfunction, or breakage of property equipment or furnishings.

Hotel and motel guests may be at risk of a slip and fall or trip and fall accident if the hotel or motel management and staff:

  1. Failed to attend to water accumulation from weather conditions, cleaning activities, or general activity in entryways, hallways, pool areas, gyms, or common bathrooms;
  2. Neglected to shovel or sufficiently salt the parking lot or sidewalk;
  3. Failed to post appropriate signage alerting to wet floors while cleaning or in areas of water accumulation;
  4. Failed to remove hazards from walkways, such as cords, maintenance materials, guest supplies, and more;
  5. Neglected to fix flooring problems, such as uneven tiles or carpeting; or
  6. Did not provide appropriate warning signage or caution indicators for potential hazards.

Other possible injuries at a hotel or motel might include but are not limited to:

  1. Injury from a broken piece of furniture;
  2. Injury from a faulty appliance in a guest room;
  3. Burns from a shower due to water heater malfunction; or
  4. Food-borne illness from a continental breakfast or other on-premises restaurants.

In these cases, the accident and injury are often the result of negligence on the part of the hotel or motel owner, management, and staff. If you, or a loved one, were injured in an accident at a hotel or motel and the accident was the result of negligence, you might be entitled to compensation.

Liability in a Hotel or Motel Accident

In order to be compensated for your hotel or motel personal injury accident, first, it must be proven that the hotel or its agents acted negligently and that this negligent behavior led to your accident. A hotel or motel acted negligently if:

  1. Known hazards were not removed, repaired, or acknowledged with proper warning signage within a reasonable amount of time;
  2. The hotel or motel did not have enough staff to keep up with maintenance like shoveling snow or mopping up water in high-risk areas; or
  3. The staff was not conscious of potential temporary hazards like vacuum cords or cleaning supplies left out and failed to warn guests of possible trips or slips.

Hotel And MotelThe list above is not comprehensive. In order to prove negligence in a lawsuit, it must be shown that the hotel and its agents failed to act in accordance with the behavior of a reasonable person. Failure to do so is negligence. If you are injured in a hotel or motel accident, you should ensure that the hotel or motel staff fills out a complete and accurate incident report. Incident reports often include getting witness information and will be important should you choose to seek compensation for your injuries. You also should seek medical attention to ensure you do not have more serious injuries and make sure all injuries are well-documented by a medical professional. It is important that you get this medical attention as soon as possible.

If you were injured in a hotel or motel, you might be entitled to compensation for the following:

  1. Medical expenses, such as hospital bills, physical therapy, and more;
  2. Lost wages due to missed work; and
  3. Pain and suffering.
