Southern California Hotel Accidents Caused by Negligence
Southern California is a tourist hub attracting hundreds of millions of people every year. Many of those tourists visit Southern California and the San Diego area. Consequently, we have hundreds of resorts hotels in the region. While staying in any of these hotels, motels, resorts, or spas, you could sustain a serious injury. There are many ways you can be injured on a hotel property, including:
- Slip and fall accidents;
- Elevator accidents;
- Stairwell accidents;
- Food poisoning;
- Criminal attacks from third parties;
- Criminal attacks from hotel staff or personnel;
- Swimming pool accidents;
- Health spa equipment accidents.
Hotels have a duty to properly maintain their properties and to repair anything that might be hazardous to their guests. Before repairs can be made, they also have a responsibility to properly notify guests of hazards with temporary signs or other means. When they fail to do so, they can and should be held liable. Additionally, hotels must provide a secure environment to prevent criminal harm to their guests, particularly when such harm is foreseeable to the hotel. If you are attacked while visiting or staying at a hotel, the hotel can possibly be held responsible for not safeguarding your safety. You should contact a San Diego premises liability attorney to evaluate the potential liability of the hotel.
