A: The answer depends on the facts and circumstances of the case. However, in many situations of a hotel slip and fall or trip and fall, the hotel may be liable if there is evidence of negligence. Such negligence can include failure to conduct maintenance or failure to conduct inspections for defects.
The key is sufficient evidence of the hotel’s negligence. For example, having the incident report which details the nature of the defect or having pictures of the defect will be important.
It is important to note that other parties could be held liable in addition to the hotel. For instance, a maintenance company could be held liable. It is best to speak to a knowledgeable slip and fall lawyer as soon as possible to discuss the case and protect your rights.
