What to Know About Hotel Accidents in New York City

There are few things worse than sustaining an injury while on vacation or business in a hotel. Unfortunately, hotel accidents do happen, and if you’ve been hurt in one, the time to act is now. Continue reading and contact our New York City personal injury attorney to learn more about hotel accidents and how our firm can help if you’ve been injured. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do hotel accidents happen?

As you know, many hotels have a lot to offer, including swimming pools, gyms to exercise in, multiple places to eat, and more. Unfortunately, when hotel staff fails to ensure that all of these amenities are taken care of and safe for everyone to use, serious accidents can occur. Slip and falls, trip and falls, and other types of accidents are actually more common in hotels than you may think. Unfortunately, oftentimes, it can be difficult for those who’ve sustained serious injuries to recover the compensation they need, which is why it is always best to speak with an experienced New York City personal injury attorney after being wrongfully injured in a hotel accident.

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

In the moments after your accident, it is critical that you take swift legal action to document the incident and receive the medical treatment you need. This means that after an accident, you should:

  1. Call the police to the scene. They will send medical services as well as document the facts of the accident.
  2. Get the contact information of anyone who witnessed your accident.
  3. Take pictures of the unsafe hotel condition that caused your accident.
  4. Once you are treated at a hospital, ask your doctor for a copy of all medical documentation and bills associated with your injury.
  5. Hire an experienced New York City personal injury attorney who can gather and present all of the additional evidence you may need to satisfy the burden of proof.

How long will I have to take legal action after an injury in New York State?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York is three years, which means that you are only given three years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury claim. Our firm is ready to begin the claims process on your behalf today.
