Hotel Accident Attorneys in West New York, NJ
Millions of people travel to New Jersey each year and opt to stay in one of the many hotels our state has to offer. Hotels are convenient and often relaxing accommodations, whether you are traveling for business or for fun. The majority of the time, hotels are safe and there is no reason for concern. Unfortunately, every so often, hotel staff fails to respond to a hazard in time and a guest can become seriously injured. Hotel management is responsible for ensuring that there are no hazards present on the property and can be held liable if anyone does get hurt. If you have been seriously injured in a hotel accident, it is important to consider your legal options because you may be eligible for compensation that can offset some of the burdens caused by the accident. The legal team at Greenberg & Walden, LLC has over 150 years of experience guiding clients through the personal injury claims process.

Hotel Accidents in New Jersey
Most of the times hotels are very safe and guests can happily stay without issue. Still, there is always a chance of getting hurt, even when you least expect it. Hotels are often very large and complex properties that have a wide range of facilities for guests to use, including pools, fitness centers, spas, casinos, bars, and more. With so many parts of a hotel that need to be regularly maintained, it is important to have enough dedicated staff to ensure all areas are safe. Some of the many types of hotel accidents that our firm has experience handling include the following:
- Elevator accidents
- Escalator accidents
- Inadequate security
- Inadequate lighting
- Faulty stairways

- Unsanitary conditions
What To Do After an Accident
If you have been injured in a hotel accident, it is important that you start collecting evidence as soon as possible. This way, fulfilling the burden of proof if you choose to take legal action won’t be quite as challenging as it would be if you tried to go back to the scene of the accident later to collect evidence that may no longer be present. Upon being injured, if you are able to, take pictures and videos of the conditions that caused you to become injured. If there are any witnesses who saw the accident happen, make sure you obtain their contact information so they can make a statement on your behalf. It is also critical that you seek medical attention to have your injuries documented as soon as possible. Finally, notify hotel management so they are aware of what occurred.
