Here are some of the questions you may have:
What should I do after being injured in a hotel accident?
If you are injured in a hotel accident the very first thing you should do is call the police. From here, you should inform the hotel management of your injury immediately afterward. Next, you should ask anyone who witnessed your accident for their contact information, including their name and phone number. Take pictures of the scene of the accident, including any property that was damaged/the safety hazard that caused your accident, as well as your injuries. Once you are treated at a hospital, ensure you ask your doctor for all medical documentation pertaining to your injuries. Finally, you must retain the services of an experienced New York personal injury attorney who can gather and present all additional evidence needed to prove your personal injury claim. Our firm has helped countless individuals through the years, and we know we have what it takes to do the same for you.
How long can I wait to sue someone for a hotel accident injury in New York?
If you are injured in an accident in New York State, you may wish to wait to see if your injuries heal on their own. While we completely understand this notion, the unfortunate reality is that it often comes back to haunt many people. This is because, in New York State, there is a statute of limitations in place that dictates how long you may wait to sue someone for an injury. Since the statute of limitations in New York State is, generally, three years, you will, under most circumstances, have three years from the date of your accident to sue. If you wait any longer than three years, there is a very good chance that you will be permanently barred from suing. Give us a call today so we can begin the claims process on your behalf.
