You may place an abundance of trust in the hotel management and staff to make sure you are well taken care of during your stay. After all, you are likely spending a significant amount of money for them to do just that. However, this same management and staff may be remiss in upholding their duties, which may subsequently cause you to slip and fall on their watch. With this, you must hold them accountable if they have caused such a great injustice. Follow along to find out how you can recover after your accident in a hotel and how a proficient Toronto slip and fall lawyer at Merricks Law Group, P.A. can help you in doing so.

What types of dangers might be present on a hotel property?

Understandably so, you may be staying at a hotel during a vacation getaway, in which you are seeking relaxation and a break from reality. But we are sad to have to inform you that you must remain alert while navigating through the hotel’s property. This is because we far too often handle slip and fall accidents that occur on such premises. Without further ado, you may unfortunately encounter the following dangers on a hotel property:

  • You may encounter a bathtub, shower, or bathroom floor in your hotel room that is not of a slip-resistant material.
  • You may encounter a mix of inadequate lighting and poorly placed furniture within your hotel room.
  • You may encounter torn or loose carpeting in the hallways leading up to your hotel room.
  • You may encounter broken or worn steps in the stairways leading up to the hotel lobby.
  • You may encounter a lack of guardrails on the balcony of your hotel room.

How can I recover after a slip and fall accident in a hotel?

Upon encountering a danger on a hotel property, and subsequently slipping, falling, and incurring injuries, the hotel management or staff may show their deepest regrets. They may go as far as offering a partial or full refund for your stay, along with other complimentary services.

However, we urge you to not accept these gifts and to not sign anything that may waive your rights to sue. This is because you may require a greater recovery than what they initially offer, such as financial compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, physical pain and emotional suffering, and more. So instead, ask the hotel management and staff to conduct an incident report; call law enforcement to the scene; and overall collect evidence that may be used in your future legal action.

When filing your slip and fall accident claim, there is no other than a talented Ontario personal injury lawyer to have in your corner. So get in touch with us at Merricks Law Group, P.A. today.
