When people are taking a weekend getaway, they are traveling for business, or for fun, they often stay in some of the many hotels that Maryland has to offer. Those who stay in hotels often feel safe doing so and rarely do they anticipate getting seriously injured because of the negligence of hotel staff. Unfortunately, it does happen and hotel guests do get hurt. Sometimes, the injuries are so severe that the victim has to undergo surgery, rehabilitation, is out of work for quite some time, and can’t do the activities they once could. With that said, the injured party is often suffering very high medical bills and has lost wages due to the time out of work. Of course, this is hard for anyone to be financially prepared for. A successful personal injury case can compensate the individual with both the financial and nonfinancial burdens that the accident caused.
Some of the accidents that most frequently occur in hotels include slip and falls in showers or walkways, food poisoning, elevator accidents, stairway accidents, swimming pool accidents, parking lot accidents, gym accidents, among others. When accidents happen, it is important to notify hotel staff immediately. It may also be beneficial to request surveillance footage of the accident and obtain the contact information of any witnesses who saw what happened. This can be of tremendous assistance when trying to fulfill the burden of proof in the personal injury case.
