The state of Maryland offers countless wonderful hotels for guests to stay in, and whether you use hotels for vacation, business, or otherwise, there is a very good chance you’ve stayed in a hotel here in Maryland as well. Unfortunately, there are times where hotels are unsafe, generally due to negligence, and if you have been injured in a hotel accident, you are most likely now seeking compensation. Continue reading and contact our Maryland personal injury attorneys to learn more about hotel accidents and how we can help if you’ve been hurt in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What are the most common causes of hotel accidents?
If you are injured in a hotel accident, it was most likely caused by negligence, either on the part of the hotel management or staff. These parties have a lot of amenities to manage and ensure are safe at all times, such as hotel swimming pools, hotel gyms and recreation facilities, and more, and when they fail to do so, serious injuries can occur. If you were injured as a result of an unsafe property condition, you will most likely qualify for a personal injury claim.
What should I do if I am hurt in a hotel accident?
If you are hurt in a hotel accident, it is critical that you do everything in your power to document the incident. This means calling the police, notifying hotel management, taking pictures of the unsafe hotel conditions that caused your accident, asking anyone who witnessed your accident for their contact information, seeking immediate medical treatment, and more. You should also ensure that you retain the services of a knowledgeable Maryland personal injury attorney who can work to uncover all additional evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof on your behalf. Our firm is here to help.
How long will I have to sue after being injured on someone else’s property in Maryland?
If you are injured on hotel premises, you will have to file your personal injury claim within the state’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland is, in most cases, three years, and if you wait any longer than three years from the date of your accident to sue, you will most likely permanently lose your right to do so. Our firm is ready to help you through every step of the claims process today–all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
