Is my hotel liable for my injury?

As the weather begins to look like spring and warm into summer, many families are creating a plan for a weekend getaway or a longer vacation. Unfortunately, a slip-and-fall accident can happen anywhere, and may occur while you and your family are staying in a hotel or some other home-away-from-home. So, if you or your loved one is injured on the premises of a hotel, what should you do?

Depending on the nature of the injury and circumstances surrounding the injury, it is possible that you have a legitimate premises liability suit against the hotel or other establishment. Each set of circumstances is different, so it is important that an experienced attorney examine the details of your accident to identify where liability may lie.

If your injury was due to some poorly maintained element of the hotel, such as a wet floor that was not properly identified with a sign or a wet or snowy area on the property, you may have a legitimate case. In order to move forward, you must be able to prove that the staff of the hotel should reasonably have been able to prevent the injury though proper upkeep, and that they could reasonably have known about the danger but failed to take the proper steps to keep you safe.

In any premises liability suit, the details are everything. An experienced attorney can help you understand the nuances of Connecticut premises liability law. With proper legal guidance, you can ensure that your rights remain protected while you explore your options for fair compensation.
