Hotel Accidents in Maryland
For the most part, hotels are very safe and trustworthy establishments that guests are happy to spend a few nights in. However, hotel staff is responsible for ensuring these vast properties are kept safely. Unfortunately, things can still fall through the cracks and hotel guests can become seriously injured. Some of the many hotel accident cases that our firm handles include the following:
- Elevator accidents
- Escalator accidents
- Inadequate lighting
- Inadequate security
- Faulty stairways
- Defective gym equipment
- Uneven or poorly lit sidewalks
- Unsafe swimming pools
- Dangerous parking garages or parking lots
- Unsanitary conditions
Fulfilling the Burden of Proof
In Maryland, if you wish to take legal action against a negligent hotel, you must prove that the staff’s negligence caused your injuries. This requirement is known as the burden of proof. With the help of an experienced personal injury attorney from the Ruben Law Firm, we can help you prove the negligence of the hotel’s staff or management. Some of the common ways this can be done include the following:
- Taking pictures or videos of the conditions that caused you to become injured
- Obtaining security camera footage of the accident occurring
- Filing an accident report with the hotel
- Keeping medical records that have documented your injuries
Recovering Compensation for Your Injuries
If you fulfill the burden of proof, you may recover significant compensation to help offset the physical, emotional, and financial burdens caused by your accident. This may include compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and more. Be sure to file your claim within three years of the date of the accident to ensure that you meet Maryland’s statute of limitations.
