What Is Hotel Premises Liability?

Hotel premises liability is a legal concept that holds hotel owners and operators responsible for ensuring their property is safe for guests. This responsibility includes maintaining the physical premises, such as floors, stairways, and elevators, as well as providing adequate security measures to protect guests from foreseeable harm.

Guests can suffer various injuries due to the negligence of hotel staff or management, including:

  • Slip and fall accidents due to wet floors, loose carpeting, or inadequate lighting
  • Injuries from faulty furniture or equipment
  • Burns from defective appliances or hot water
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Food poisoning from hotel restaurants
  • Injuries from criminal acts due to inadequate security

Negligent Security

One of the most prevalent issues in hotel premises liability in Atlanta is negligent security. Hotels have a legal obligation to provide a safe environment for their guests, which includes adequate security measures to prevent assaults, theft, and other criminal activities. When hotels fail to provide proper lighting, working locks, secured entries, security cameras, or personnel, they put their guests at risk. The Schermerhorn Firm is ready to take on local inns or the biggest hotel and motel chains to hold them accountable for their negligence while securing substantial compensation for victims of hotel security lapses.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are another common hazard in Atlanta metro hotels. Wet floors, waxed and slippery surfaces, poorly maintained carpets, and inadequate lighting can all lead to serious injuries, including fractures, head injuries, and spinal cord damage. Our attorneys have the expertise to investigate these incidents, gather evidence to prove negligence, and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Swimming Pool Injuries

Hotel swimming pools can be a source of relaxation and fun, but they can also be dangerous if not properly maintained. Injuries from slips and falls on wet pool decks, diving accidents, or lack of proper supervision can result in severe consequences. Warnings for safe pool use should be conspicuously posted and easy to understand, and entries should be self-latching or require hotel keycards to access. The Schermerhorn Firm is adept at navigating the complexities of swimming pool liability cases, ensuring that hotels are held responsible for their failure to maintain a safe environment.

Food Poisoning

Food poisoning is an often-overlooked hazard in hotels that nevertheless occur hundreds of times each year, according to the National Institutes of Health. Guests trust that the food served is safe to eat, but improper food handling, storage, or preparation can lead to serious illness. Our attorneys are skilled in investigating food poisoning cases, working with medical experts and industry professionals as necessary to prove negligence and secure compensation for your suffering.
