Hotel Accident Attorneys in West Orange, NJ
Staying in a hotel is often a pleasant experience that many people look forward to. Whether traveling for business or fun, New Jersey is home to a wide variety of hotels to accommodate your needs for the duration of your stay. When we think of hotels, danger typically does not come to mind. Hotel staff is required to take diligent care of the property and ensure that there are no hazards present that could potentially cause someone to become injured. With that said, sometimes, the staff does not respond to an issue quickly enough and a guest can become seriously injured. If you have been hurt in a New Jersey hotel accident, contact Brown Law, LLC. Our firm can help you recover the compensation you are entitled to during this difficult time. Contact us to discuss your case.
Causes of Hotel Accidents
Even though many people don’t associate hotels with being dangerous, it is important to be aware of the hazards that may lurk if the hotel’s staff is negligent. Some of the many hotel accident cases that our firm has experience pursuing include accidents regarding the following:
- Gym equipment
- Parking lots
- Unsanitary conditions
- Inadequate security
- Inadequate lighting
Fulfilling the Burden of Proof
Hotels have a responsibility to ensure that their property is safe for all patrons. When they fail to remedy any issues that do arise, visitors can become seriously injured. If an injured party wishes to hold a hotel accountable for their negligence, they will be responsible for fulfilling the burden of proof. The burden of proof is simply when the plaintiff provides evidence that the hotel knew or should have reasonably known about the hazards and failed to address them, ultimately resulting in the accident. The hotel is technically innocent until proven guilty, just like anyone else is who is accused of breaking the law. An experienced legal team can help the injured party collect evidence to prove their case. Some common forms of evidence include obtaining surveillance footage, witness testimony, photos and videos from the scene of the accident, and more. It is important to preserve as much evidence as possible at the time of the accident.
