When you stay in a hotel, you likely expect to have a relaxing and accommodating experience. Hotels work hard to impress guests by providing amenities such as restaurants, bars, pools, hot tubs, and fitness centers. Most of the time, hotels are successful in taking good care of their guests. However, accidents, unfortunately, do happen in hotels, and such accidents cause injuries to thousands of hotel guests every year. Many of these accidents occur due to negligent acts on the part of hotel management or other staff. If you are the victim of such an accident, an experienced personal injury attorney in Coweta County can help you receive compensation for the injuries you suffered.
Hotels have the duty to keep the property free from dangerous hazards and to take certain measures to keep their guests healthy and safe. When the hotel breaches this duty, it may be held liable for any injuries or illnesses that result. Some examples of negligence that commonly occur in hotels include:
- Hot tub or pool accidents
- Slip and falls due to hazards in rooms
- Slip and falls due to hazards in common areas
- Fitness center accidents
- Food poisoning
- Not properly sanitizing rooms
- Data security breaches
- Inadequate security for crime prevention
- Hiring dangerous individuals
- Injuries caused by defective room construction or other items in rooms
These are only some examples of accidents that may occur in hotels. Since hotels have many different areas and numerous employees, the possibility of accidents, injuries, and illnesses is usually fairly high.
