Hotel Injuries Lawyer in Indiana
Representing Clients With Their Motel Injury Cases
Dangerous conditions inside hotels and motels throughout the state of Indiana can cause serious risks for slip and fall accidents. Slip and fall injuries are some of the leading causes of visits to the emergency room across the entire country and a hotel manager or owner might be responsible for the injuries and resulting damages if you can prove that the hotel or motel was negligent.
Was This an Accident or an Issue of Negligence?
Slips, trips, and falls can certainly be embarrassing, and it can be easy to assume that you should take the blame for what happened. However, if the slip and fall injury might have been prevented and was not your fault, you should consult with an injury lawyer as soon as possible. If motel or hotel property owners do not take appropriate care of their facility and death/injuries occur, both owners and managers can be held accountable.
How Do Slip and Falls Happen at Hotels?
There are many different types of premises liability cases that can begin at a resort or a hotel, including: falling on a poorly lit or broken stairwell, slipping on a wet floor near the entrance to a hotel due to an icy or snowy sidewalk outside of the hotel, or a faulty handrail. Even hotel or motel slip and falls in hotel bathtubs or indoor or outdoor hot tubs that are not properly made skid-resistant or meet industry standards regarding minimization of slip and falls occur quite frequently.
Tripping over unmarked cords and cables is another frequent type of injury in Indiana hotels and motels. Some hotels and motels provide indoor swimming pools or water activities. These can be very dangerous places for you and your family. Whether it’s proper maintenance of the equipment that goes with heated swimming pools or proper lifeguard supervision of the area – talk to McKibben Shaw Law to determine your rights for hotel and motel swimming pool injuries and swimming area injuries.
If you have been injured while on the premises of a resort, motel, or hotel in Indiana, and you can prove that your injury might have been prevented if the hotel chain or hotel or motel property owner or manager had exercised reasonable care or at the very least warned of the dangerous condition, you can seek recovery of damages for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, medical bills, disfigurement, loss of quality of the life you once enjoyed.
You need to consult with an experienced premises liability attorney immediately to identify your next action. The medical bills associated with a slip and fall injury at a hotel can be catastrophic. Don’t let the opportunity to recover personal injury damages expire without getting the honest and straight talk you deserve from McKibben Shaw Law.
Mistakes to Avoid in Your Hotel Injury Claim
While it makes perfectly good sense to talk immediately with the hotel following an injury (filling out an incident report is always helpful), do not allow them to convince you that your claim is minimal or worthless. The hotel manager might try to advise you to pursue an insurance claim directly with their chosen insurance provider; however, you cannot always count on this insurance carrier to have your best interests in mind. The bottom line for most insurance companies is to minimize or deny claims, and this might leave you in the lurch having to pay your medical bills.
When you can prove that the hotel property owner and manager had a responsibility to exercise reasonable care for its guests as to preventing foreseeable injuries, and that was not appropriately protected, you can recover comprehensive compensation with the support of an Indiana hotel slip and fall injury lawyer.
