What steps should I take after a hotel accident?
The state of Pennsylvania holds property owners responsible for maintaining their premises. This means that hotels have a legal obligation to keep their properties safe for their guests. This can be accomplished by performing routine checks of the hotel to ensure that there are no hazards present, and if there are, that they are fixed as soon as possible. If these investigations are not performed, or the hazards are not set in a timely manner, guests can get seriously hurt. If an injury occurs, the hotel can be deemed negligent, and the injured party may be permitted to obtain compensation for their burdens.
In order to recover the compensation you need to heal, you will have to demonstrate that negligence occurred and has resulted in your injuries. To do this, you should take photos and videos at the scene of the accident. Also, you should seek medical attention at a hospital immediately after the accident. Before leaving, ask your doctor for a copy of any relevant medical documents. Lastly, you should retain the services of a skilled York County, PA personal injury attorney.
