Can I pursue legal action after a hotel accident?

The state of New Jersey holds property owners liable for ensuring that their grounds are properly maintained and kept safe for those who enter them. This can be accomplished by hotel management and staff performing routine checks of the premises. By doing this, all hazards will go unnoticed and will be addressed to ensure that no guests are put at risk. In the event that these checks are not performed, staff and property owners may be held liable for negligence in the event that a guest is injured. This insinuates that injured guests can pursue legal action by filing a personal injury claim.

If you were injured in a hotel accident due to the negligence of another, you will have to show proof that this negligence happened. To accomplish this, you should take pictures and videos at the scene of the accident. You will also need to be sure to document the hazardous conditions that caused your accident to occur. Furthermore, you should ask anyone who witnessed the accident for their contact information. You should go to the hospital immediately after the accident, even if you do not feel you have been seriously injured. You will be able to obtain documentary proof of your injuries that can be key evidence in your personal injury claim.
