As the coronavirus begins to make an exit in many parts of the country, more and more people are beginning to vacation. Of course, part of most vacations is staying in hotels. There are tons of wonderful hotels throughout the state of Maryland, and many of these hotels come with several wonderful amenities, such as gyms, swimming pools, and more. That being said, hotel management and staff are responsible for ensuring these amenities are safe for all to use. When they fail to regularly maintain this equipment and these features, people can become seriously injured as a result. Please continue reading and speak our knowledgeable Maryland personal injury attorneys to learn more about hotel accidents and how we can help you through the claims process ahead if you have been injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What should I do if I am injured in a hotel accident in Maryland?
If you are injured in a hotel accident, the first thing you should do is call the police and notify the hotel management of the accident. From here, you should ask any witnesses of the accident for their name and phone number. From here, you should take pictures of the unsafe hotel condition that caused your accident before anyone has the chance to clear the hazard away. Once you are transported to and treated at a hospital and receive medical documentation regarding your injuries, you must contact an experienced Maryland personal injury attorney who can work to gather and present all additional evidence needed to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence in a premises liability claim.
What is the statute of limitations for hotel accidents in Maryland?
If you are injured in a hotel in the state of Maryland, you will have to ensure that you take legal action within the state’s statute of limitations. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland is, under most circumstances, three years, you will have to ensure you take appropriate legal action within the allotted three-year timeframe. Do not make the mistake of waiting any longer than three years to sue the hotel responsible for your injuries, for if you do, there is a very good chance that you will be permanently time-barred from suing. Our firm can help you fight for the compensation you deserve and need to heal today–all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
