Hotel Accidents in NYC | Here’s What You Should Know

Seldom do we ever step foot into a hotel and think of it as particularly dangerous. However, when hotel staff or management fail to vigilantly ensure their premises are adequately maintained, safety hazards can arise, and people can sustain serious injuries as a result. If you were recently wrongfully injured in a hotel accident, you need to continue reading and reach out to a competent Bronx slip and fall lawyer right here at The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny as soon as you possibly can. Here are some of the questions you may have about hotel accidents and how we can help if you were hurt in one:

How do most hotel accidents occur?

Hotel accidents typically occur as a result of negligence. Some of the most common causes of hotel accidents that we see are as follows:

  • Spills left uncleaned
  • Dangerous hotel gym equipment
  • Dangerous hotel swimming pools
  • Absent lifeguards at swimming pools
  • Unsafe hotel sidewalks or parking lots
  • Inadequate security
  • Dim lighting

What should I do if I’m hurt in a hotel accident?

If you are hurt in a hotel accident, you should take the following steps to help ensure you receive immediate medical treatment and document the accident:

  1. Call 911 and notify hotel management of your accident.
  2. Take pictures or videos of the unsafe conditions that caused your accident.
  3. Ask witnesses for their contact information.
  4. Keep a copy of all documentation pertaining to your injury.
  5. Speak with our experienced New York City premises liability attorneys. We can work to uncover all additional evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim.

Importantly, the statute of limitations for premises liability claims in New York City is, typically, three years. This means that in most cases, you will only have three years from the date of your accident to sue the party responsible for your injuries. Our firm has effectively handled personal injury claims on behalf of our clients for decades, and we are prepared to assist you as well. Do not delay–pick up the phone and give us a call today.
