Hotel Lobby and Hallway Accidents
When one thinks about a stay in a hotel, inn, bed and breakfast, or motel, usually leisure, relaxation and adventure come to mind. An embarrassing and painful accident, however, is not the type of adventure anyone hopes for. If such an incident happened to you while staying at any of these types of establishments – anywhere in the state of Massachusetts – a personal injury attorney from the Cambridge firm of Altman & Altman LLP may be able to help you win financial compensation from negligent parties responsible for your accident.Hotels Have a Responsibility to Ensure Safe Premises
Serious injuries can happen when hotel and motel owners do not take care of their premises. There are numerous of examples of accidents that can take place in hotel lobbies and hallways. For example, you may:
- Trip on loose carpeting or a carpet ridge
- Slip on a wet floor (caused by a spill or natural causes like rain/snow that wasn’t mopped up
- Fall down in a badly lit hallway or staircase
- Suffer an attack at the hands of someone who should have been stopped by security
Many of these accidents are easily preventable if the owner of a hotel or similar establishment is looking out for their guests and fulfilling their legal requirement to reasonably safeguard guests against harm. Sadly, these injuries do occur as the result of negligence by the property owner. However, if this is the case, you may have a solid claim to make for financial compensation on the grounds of that negligence.
To prove negligence, it must be assessed that the property owner was either ignorant of a safety concern that eventually caused an injury, or they knowingly failed to address a potential safety concern which led to your accident. In either case, we have the ability to recreate the accident scene and use our experience to give you the best chance at recovering money to help with your recovery and recoup money lost from being unable to work while you heal.Let us Find out who was at Fault
