Houston is a major metropolitan area with millions of visitors every year. Houston has a wide range of accommodations for travelers, ranging from inexpensive budget motels to lavish five-star suites. No matter where you choose to stay during a visit to Houston, it is possible that the hotel or motel could make a mistake or an oversight, which could cause a slip and fall accident or another type of accident.
If a hotel employee has behaved negligently and that causes an accident, a business trip or a vacation can turn bad very quickly. If a tourist is injured during a trip, it’s important that the tourist contact an attorney. An attorney can help fight for your legal rights on your behalf, even if you must return home later.
Hotel staff must be consistent in their approach to safety and maintenance, or guests will get hurt. Some common accidents that can occur because of the negligence of employees in a hotel include slip and fall accidents caused by spills, accidents in unsafe or unmonitored swimming pools, failure to provide proper security, accidents caused by elevators or escalators in disrepair, and issues with electrical outlets.
In many cases, there is more than one negligent party involved in the hotel’s liability. An injured accident victim may need to sue the hotel’s owner, the property manager, a contractor that provides services for the hotel, or another party. This can make hotel/motel premises liability cases very complicated.
