We Can Help You Regardless of How You Were Injured
We have worked with clients who were hurt in a variety of ways on hotel and motel property in New York City. No matter how your injury occurred, our New York hotel accident lawyers will help you identify the responsible parties and if the circumstances were such that they should be legally liable, pursue compensation from them and their insurance companies.
We have helped clients win compensation for the following hotel injuries and more:
Slip and Fall
A slip and fall accident at a hotel can occur on the sidewalk, on a stairwell with a loose or missing step, in an elevator, in the parking lot, or even in your room. We will investigate your accident and determine if it was caused by a hazardous condition that the hotel management should have addressed.
Many hotels offer pools to their guests. While this amenity provides fun and recreation, it can also present many dangers, especially when you consider that many hotels do not employ lifeguards.
Unlike residential neighborhoods, hotels and motels are highly transient, opening up guests to encounter individuals who may have criminal intent. Moreover, most hotels do not perform background checks on guests, meaning the guest in the room next to you might have a felony rap sheet a mile long, and you would never know. If you were the victim of a criminal act on hotel property, we can take action against not only the perpetrator but also the owner or manager of the property.
We will help you pursue compensation for injuries suffered in an auto accident in the hotel parking lot or parking garage. These structures may try to cram too many cars into too small of a space and provide little to no control over the flow of traffic. When this kind of negligence leads to an accident, we can hold the property owner liable.
If you were injured while partaking in a recreational activity sponsored by the hotel, such as ziplining, snorkeling, or swimming (and were, in some manner, not safely and properly prepared for the activity,), we will collect evidence of liability against the responsible parties.
