Common causes of Slip and Fall Accidents in Hotel’s Resorts and Motels

Hotel Accident Attorney - Injury Lawsuit InformationSlippery Surfaces: Most commonly this type of injury results as a product of a property owner’s failure to clean an existing spill on the floor, but often results from a freshly cleaned floor that is too slippery to walk on. Failure to Fix:  Often time, property owners are liable when they fail to fix a dangerous condition such as a protruding rod from the floor, holes in the parking lot, or a raised or hollow floor. Stairs:  Property owners may be liable where they fail to maintain a safe stairway.  Often, this dangerous condition results from worn down stairs, or where stairs are improperly marked or highlighted. Building Code Violations: Property owners are liable for slip and fall injuries resulting from their failure to adhere to all building codes.  Examples include unacceptable handrails, violations of stair height and depth, or improper building maintenance. Ice or snow:  Most insurance adjusters will try to claim that an injury resulting from snow or ice is a result of the carelessness of the victim, but our slip and fall attorneys know that this is not always the case. Even in cases of dangerous weather, property owners should pre-treat and spot treat their outdoor areas (i.e. salting or sanding walkways) to ensure that their premises remain safe.

Assault and battery and sexual assault in hotels and motels: both assault and battery and sexual assault are typically associated with the malicious intent of attackers. However, the actions (or inaction) of property owner can directly contribute these attacks. Certain conditions on the premises, such as unlit areas, poorly lit areas, secluded areas, lack of security, lack of surveillance, etc. can all contribute to these attacks in hotels and motels.

Trip and fall accidents: trip and fall accidents can occur anytime that there are hazards on floors and walkways. Some examples of trip and fall hazards include torn carpeting, exposed wiring, uneven floors, broken concreate, broken tiles, objects blocking walkways, etc. Any of these hazards can potentially cause unsuspecting parties to trip, fall, and sustain multiple injuries.


Roof and ceiling collapses: roof and ceiling collapses are among the most dangerous incidents that could occur in hotels and motels. Roofs and ceiling can become hazardous due to weather conditions, normal wear and tear, the use of cheap building materials, and incorrect installation, for instance. Typically, there are a few signs of roof and ceiling damage before an incident occurs. These incidents can lead to devastating injuries, including brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and crushing injuries.

Falling objects: any object that is placed in an elevated area, like mounted televisions, frames, décor, ceiling fans, shelving, etc. can fall and strike unsuspecting guests. These objects typically fall because they were installed incorrectly or not regularly maintained. In falling object incidents, affected parties are likely to suffer head injuries, brain injuries, neck injuries, and even spinal cord injuries.

Electrocutions: if a property has electrical issues, electrocutions and other electric shock injuries are likely. Things like exposed wires, live wires, defective products, and other electrical injuries can contribute to incidents that can harm unsuspecting parties.

Fires: fires are, unfortunately, very common. Smoke detectors, fire alarms, and sprinkler systems can typically prevent fire incidents from escalating. However, the lack of smoke detectors in hotel and motel rooms (and other fire safety devices) can be problematic. If there is no working smoke detector in a hotel or motel room, guests cannot be alerted of fires and could suffer burn injuries as well as smoke inhalation injuries.

Hotel operator, manager, and owners premises liability laws:

Liability for injuries is bases on the Status of the Victim Land owner or possessors liability varies greatly depending upon the classification of the victim. Invitee:  An invitee is owed the highest duty of care.  They are any individual who is either expressly or impliedly invited to another person’s premises for their mutual benefit. Licensee: Any individual who enters the premises at the owner or possessors consent for a non business or commercial purpose.  The most common example is a social guest.  In order to recover as a licensee, a victim must establish (all three):

  1. The owner or possessor knew or should have known of the dangerous condition, and should have known that it created an unreasonable risk of harm, and likewise should have known that the plaintiff would fail to discover the dangerous condition
  2. The owner or possessor did not make the condition safe or failed to warn the licensee of the condition
  3. The licensee did not know of the dangerous condition or the risks involved.
