What Causes Hotel, Motel, and Resort Accidents?
Many things can contribute to accidents in a hotel, motel, or resort. In order for the victim to have a premise liability case, the accident must have been caused by the negligence of the property owner, property manager, and/or employees of the property. If a floor was slippery and caused a slip and fall accident due to an employee spill, or failing to put out a “wet floor” sign, for example, that may be negligence. If a fall or an attack was caused by inadequate lighting in a hallway, stairway, or other location, this too could be attributed to the negligence of the property owner. Unsafe conditions such as lack of security in parking garages are another way that a property owner and/or manager can be negligent. If a building is not “up to code,” a swimming pool is not properly supervised and maintained, locks on windows and doors are faulty, or any other maintenance issue causes a hotel, motel, and resort accident, there could be negligence on the part of the property owner, manager, and/or employee.
