There are few things worse than being wrongly injured in an accident while on vacation. Unfortunately, this happens more often than you may think, and it usually happens at hotels. Please read on and reach out to our experienced Maryland personal injury attorneys to learn more about hotel accidents and how we can help you if you have been injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What are the most common causes of hotel accidents?
Hotels offer a wide array of services, and when these services are inadequately performed or maintained, serious injuries can occur. There are oftentimes injuries due to faulty gym equipment, dangerous swimming pool conditions, food poisonings, and more as a result of hotel management/staff negligence.
What do I need to do after an accident to win a personal injury claim?
If you are injured in an accident, you must first call the police and notify the hotel management of your accident and that you were injured. From here, you should ask any passersby who witnessed your accident for their contact information. Next, you should ensure you take pictures of the unsafe condition that caused your accident. Finally, once you are treated at the hospital and receive medical documentation pertaining to your injuries, you should reach out to an experienced Maryland personal injury attorney who can work to uncover all additional evidence needed to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. In many cases, for example, our firm can subpoena security camera footage of the accident as it happened.
How long will I have to sue someone for an accident in Maryland?
If you are injured in an accident in Maryland, whether in an auto accident or while on another person’s property, as long as it is not government-owned property, the statute of limitations for your personal injury claim will, generally, be three years. This means that you will have three years from the date of your accident to sue the hotel responsible for your injuries. Do not make the grave mistake of waiting too long to sue, for if you wait any longer than three years, you will most likely be permanently barred from suing. Our firm is here to help you through every step of the claims process ahead. All you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call today.
