Are Hotels Liable for Accidents and Injuries?
Hotel companies, hotel employees, and third parties, such as electricians, can be held liable for guest and visitor injuries, but only under certain circumstances. Plaintiffs must prove that these circumstances existed by providing evidence, such as medical records or witness testimony. The following sections discuss what the plaintiff must prove in a personal injury lawsuit against a hotel, and what sort of compensation the plaintiff may be able to recover.
What Do I Need to Prove?
The plaintiff in a personal injury case has the “burden of proof,” or the responsibility for proving that the defendant was at fault for the accident. A hotel injury lawyer can provide invaluable assistance in this regard, gathering records and working with forensic specialists, engineers, doctors, or other experts to analyze the causes, long-term financial impacts, and medical effects of your injury.
What is Negligence?
If you are seeking compensation for an accident at the Hampton Inn or other hotel brands, you must prove that the hotel (and/or other parties, such as contractors and subcontractors) caused your injuries by acting in a “negligent” manner. A person or business may be negligent by failing to meet a certain standard or duty of care. Hotels like Hampton Inn are required to comply with numerous standards and regulations which might have been violated or ignored, leading to your accident. For example, negligent maintenance can lead to a leak or spill that causes a slip and fall accident in a hotel lobby, dining area, or meeting room.
What Sort of Compensation Can I Get?
If negligence leads to avoidable injuries, or causes the wrongful death of a hotel visitor, the negligent party or negligent parties may be responsible for resulting “damages,” or harm. There are “economic” damages, which attempt to compensate financial and out-of-pocket losses, and “non-economic” damages, which attempt to compensate harm of a physical or emotional nature, such as pain and suffering. Assorted damages may be available in a hotel injury lawsuit in Pennsylvania, including compensation for:
- Medical expenses, such as surgeries, medications, physical rehabilitation, hospital admission, prosthetic limbs, and other medical bills or devices
- Earnings and income that the victim has lost, or is expected to lose in the future, due to the injury or injuries
- Pain and suffering caused by the injury or injuries
- Damage to the victim’s personal property or belongings
- Burial and funeral expenses, in cases involving fatal injuries
