Hotels, resorts, motels, and other lodging facilities are responsible for your injuries when they breach their duty of care to you as their guest. If you get in an accident caused by the fault or negligence of the hotel owner or staff, they could be held liable for your injuries.
However, in order for the claim against the hotel for causing your injuries to be successful, you must prove four points:
- that the hotel owed you a duty of care as their lawful guest, meaning that you were not a trespasser
- that the hotel breached their duty of care to you as their guest through by being negligent to your safety
- that the hotel’s negligence was the cause of the accident and subsequent injuries
- that you suffered damages such as personal injuries, mental health repercussions, or financial losses as a result of the accident
If you can prove all of these four aspects regarding the hotel accident and your personal injuries, you could file a successful insurance claim or lawsuit with the help of an expert personal injury attorney who can also ensure that you get the maximum compensation that you deserve.
