When you pay the staff at a hotel or motel for a place to stay, you entrust them with the security of your family, and they become responsible for providing you with a safe and secure room. When door locks fail or break-ins occur at a hotel, you are not in control of your surroundings and are therefore more vulnerable than ever to attack, physical violation, and assault.
If you or a member of your family has been injured or assaulted by a third party while staying at a hotel, motel, or resort, you may be eligible for compensation from the hotel for your injuries and suffering.
Attack, robbery, or assault can change your life forever.
If you are attacked, robbed, or assaulted, it is highly likely that you sustained injuries. In the most tragic circumstances, you may have lost a family member because of such a situation.
Hotel, motel, and resort operators have a duty to provide safe and secure lodgings for their guests. When these establishments fail to exercise an appropriate level of care and someone is injured or killed as a result, the injured person or family of the deceased may have a claim against the inn and may be eligible to recover damages for:
- Pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and interference with familial relationships
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Wrongful death
- Emotional distress
- Past, present and future medical bills
- Lost wages, future earnings and earning capacity
- … and other general damages.
