Hotel Accident Lawyer Los Angeles
Much like any business, hotels must protect their invitees. Spending hundreds to rest peacefully during long road stints means guests should be able to freely walk, enjoy pool time or any other amenity offered by a hotel.
Compass Law Group, PC, with attorneys whom themselves have stayed in hotels, understand premises liability shouldered by motels, hotels, inns, bed & breakfast and even hostels.
Short of guest negligence, hotel owners are responsible for grounds, indoor structure and the safe usage of its amenities. Guests cannot simply bust their duff on an obviously loose tile and claim hotel liability; now if toilet runs over and guest slips and falls on the same tile, a liability claim could be made based off a known plumbing issue.
Before guests are assigned rooms, hotel managers or reasonably knowledgeable staff should inspect each room to make sure it’s compliant with building codes. Maintenance should regularly make rounds to assure that steps, pool ladders, saunas, steam rooms, and similar amenities are operational, safe to use and have an easy means of escaping should an emergency arise.
When hotel owners get lax enough to injure guests, Compass Law Group, PC will be there to sue for any damages sustained.
Our skilled Los Angeles hotel accidents attorneys handle numerous hotel claims annually. With each case being formed based on its own merits, some common denominators which contribute to action being taken include:
- Hotel owner failed to properly seal off pool area which had a drainage issue. A young child found their way into the pool area, broke their neck and became paralyzed.
- Improper signage led to an elderly person slipping on wet tile, causing her to break both her hip and fibula.
- Hotel’s own restaurant serves bad chicken, causing a widespread case of botulism. Half the persons eating there become deathly sick.
- Degrading staircase to the second floor finally gave way, injuring several people walking up with luggage.
Obviously, there’s no hard and fast rule when litigating hotel accident cases. With facts, testimonies from witnesses and evidence we collect ourselves, we can determine whether you’re entitled to compensation or not.
You just pulled over to catch some shut-eye after 10 long hours of driving. You’re walking upstairs, and the handrail gives way, sending you and your luggage over the edge. Now, instead of grabbing some sleep, you’re shoved into an ambulance.
Similar incidents that our Los Angeles hotel accidents attorneys have successfully settled came down to one critical element: duty. Hotels must maintain sufficiently safe walking, sleeping, and common areas. If not, they face building code violations and civil suits based on accidents occurring after knowledge of non-compliance was discovered.
