Dangerous Slip and Fall Conditions in NJ Hotels
Hotels are generally large buildings with many areas where guests visit, including: reception, guest rooms, conference rooms, bars and restaurants, pool areas, bathrooms, fitness rooms and many hallways. With many varied spaces to oversee, it is not hard to imagine a maintenance task left unattended for some time.
Overworked hotel maintenance staff may not be responsive to the building’s needs. While the hotel may save money by understaffing, they may be putting people at risk. A torn carpet in the hallway can easily trip a guest and cause facial injuries or broken bones. A loose rung on a pool ladder can lead to a slip on the pool edge. This can be even more dangerous if someone is injured and then falls into the water. A malfunctioning treadmill can cause a serious injury.

After an injury at a hotel, it is absolutely vital that you consult with an experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney who will fight tirelessly to preserve your best interests.
New Jersey Hotel Liability in Slip and Fall Accident Cases
Under NJ premises liability law, every hotel guest is considered an “invitee” and thus legally entitled to a certain amount of protection. Hotel owners must maintain safe conditions on the premises as a part of their duty to guests. This includes addressing all fall hazards in a timely fashion once they are discovered. A hotel owner may be held liable in an injury lawsuit if the following conditions are met:
- The owner failed to uphold their duty of care;
- There was an injury incident; and
- The injury incident was directly tied to the owner’s breach of duty.

Getting You the Means for Recovery
You should not have to suffer financially, as well as physically, if you have sustained a fall injury in NJ. The hotel is responsible for keeping you safe while you are on the premises and they must be held to that responsibility. The cost of medical treatment can be astronomical, and certain types of injuries can change your life forever. The cost of ongoing care for the lasting effects of severe injuries can easily bankrupt a family.
If you suffered a major injury due to a trip and fall at a hotel, you need an experienced legal team behind you so that you can recover the greatest financial compensation for your losses.
