Hotel Accidents in NYC | What You Need to Know

As you know, people travel from all over the country, and the world, to New York City, whether on business, vacation, or otherwise. Oftentimes, a part of such long-distance travel is staying in a hotel. While there are many clean, safe, and comfortable hotels throughout New York City, there are times where hotel management/staff behave negligently, causing hotel grounds to become very unsafe. Please continue reading and speak with our Brooklyn personal injury lawyer to learn more about hotel accidents in NYC and how our firm can help if you’ve been injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of hotel accidents?

As previously stated, hotel accidents are frequently caused by negligent hotel staff or management. Hotel staff is responsible for ensuring that their premises are safe at all times. This means ensuring wet floors are cleaned up, swimming pools are safe, gym equipment is in tip-top shape, stairwells/elevators are safe, and more. When they fail to ensure as much, there is a very good chance that people will sustain injuries as a result. If you were injured due to no fault of your own, you will most likely have a valid premises liability claim.

What should I do after being injured in a hotel?

If you are injured in a hotel accident, as long as you are physically capable, you should take the following steps:

  1. Call the police and notify hotel staff/management of the incident.
  2. Ask anyone who saw your accident for their contact information.
  3. Take pictures of the unsafe hotel conditions that caused your injury.
  4. Receive immediate medical treatment.
  5. Obtain all medical documentation/bills associated with your injury from your doctor.
  6. Hire an experienced Brooklyn personal injury lawyer who can work to uncover all additional evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof on your, behalf, such as surveillance footage of your accident. Additionally, you should understand that time is of the essence when it comes to personal injury claims. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York State is, generally, three years, meaning you must not wait any longer than three years from the date of your accident to file your claim, for if you do, you will most likely lose your right to sue.
