How to Sue a Hotel for Injury

How to Sue a Hotel for Injury

When you’re on vacation, attending a conference, or traveling for work, it can be a nasty shock to be involved in an accident in your own hotel. It’s not just the injury, either—you may be a long way from home, and you may not want to stay in New York City for the duration of a personal injury lawsuit. 

Luckily, a hotel injury lawyer can help you there. They can show you how to sue a hotel for injury, so you can seek compensation while giving your injuries the attention they need. 

Gather Evidence 

When you’re injured in a hotel, you need to gather evidence of your injuries and the accident. These accidents can happen anywhere someone was careless with maintenance, cleaning, or repairs. Your lawyer can take photos of the scene, talk with your doctor about your injuries, and even talk to expert witnesses. 

For example, you may have tripped over a broken stair and fell. Your doctor can provide evidence that your injuries were severe and connected to your fall. Your hotel injury lawyer can talk to a repair person about the faulty stair and whether the hotel should have fixed it right away. Your lawyer may focus on showing the hotel should have taken action to prevent the accident, but neglected to do so. 

Determine the New York At-Fault Party

When you’re hurt in a hotel accident, you need to know who’s responsible for paying for those injuries. You’ve suffered enough, and you shouldn’t have to pay out of pocket, but who caused the conditions of your accident? 

Typically, the hotel is liable for any injuries that happen on its premises. For example, you suffered a poolside injury, or your bed broke and you hurt your back. These may be the responsibility of the hotel owner. They’re responsible for hiring responsible employees and protecting the safety of all visitors from any careless, avoidable situations in which guests could be injured. 

Act on Time

Sadly, you don’t have much time to file a lawsuit against a hotel for your injuries. Every state has time limits, and if you pass those limits, your claim could be dismissed. That leaves you without the compensation you’re due. In New York, you have only three years to recover compensation. 

Here’s the good news—your hotel injury lawyer can help you seek compensation in time for your claim. They can determine how much time you have to file and what you need to do in that time. They can also help you act even if you’re struggling to focus on anything but your injuries.

How to Increase Your Personal Injury Settlement

When you’re hurt in a serious accident, your personal injury settlement should cover all your needs. But, you may be unsure whether you’re really asking for enough. Thousands of dollars may sound like a lot of money, but you may need more for more severe injuries. 

Unfortunately, it’s easy to lose track of those losses and settle for less than your injuries are worth. You need to know how to increase your personal injury settlement before you agree to the insurance company’s first offer. Insurers are trying to protect their profits, not your safety. Continue reading to learn more.

Calculate Your Personal Injury Claim’s Value

What if the at-fault party or insurance company is paying less than you think you deserve? You don’t have to accept that settlement offer, but you may need to calculate your claim’s value with a lawyer’s help. That compensation should include every way your life has been impacted by the accident.

These losses caused by the accident can be financial or mental and emotional. Your economic damages should cover all the expenses that accrue when you’re hurt, such as medical bills and property damage. 

Don’t forget your non-economic damages, too. These damages cover the emotional and mental toll of an injury, such as pain and loss of enjoyment of life. If you’re not sure whether these losses are covered in your settlement, reach out for a personal injury attorney for help calculating your claim’s worth. 

Writing a Demand Letter

Once you know what your personal injury claim is worth, you may know already that the insurance company isn’t offering enough for the losses you’ve suffered. When this happens, you may need your personal injury lawyer to help you write a demand letter for your losses. This letter states what your claim is actually worth, with details and evidence supporting that claim. 

Once your lawyer sends that letter to the insurance company, they have a chance to decide whether to accept the demand letter and make a new settlement offer. If not, you and your injury lawyer can take your claim to court and seek compensation for your losses. 

Talk to a Lawyer about Increasing Your Personal Injury Settlement

When you’ve been injured by someone else’s actions, it’s not easy to get over the losses you’ve suffered. It’s worse when you’re unable to get the compensation you’re due because of someone else’s carelessness. Lucky for you, your attorney knows how to increase your personal injury settlement and help you recover from your losses. 

If you’ve been injured and you’re worried your personal injury settlement isn’t enough, talk to the lawyers at Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP for help. If you’re injured and struggling to get fairly compensated, reach out for guidance through a free consultation.

Thanks to the New York’s Child Victims Act, victims of child sexual abuse in the Amish Community are finally entitled to justice.

Do You Need an NYC Injury Lawyer? Here’s How to Know

When someone else is careless or negligent, you could be seriously injured as a result. Unfortunately, you may be unsure what that means for you. You may be thinking about suing, but do you really need to? Do you need a NYC injury lawyer for your claim? 

Unfortunately, that’s a tough question when you’re already struggling with your injuries and what you can do about your claim. Fortunately, there are a few ways you can know whether you need an NYC injury lawyer and how to get the help you need for your claim.

You’re Seriously Injured

When you’re hurt in a serious accident, your injuries can affect ever aspect of your life. Even something that seems minor at the time could get continually worse, and make it harder for you to recover from the accident and get your life back on track. 

For example, you may have been knocked down and hit your head because of your accident. You may have suffered a concussion, which affects the way your brain processes information. That means you may be unable to focus, remember things, or do certain tasks that used to be easy for you. 

Your NYC injury lawyer can help you get compensated for those injuries. You shouldn’t have to live with the costs of another’s carelessness. Fortunately, you don’t have to. If someone has injured you or otherwise cost you something, such as car repairs after a crash, you may need a lawyer to help you with your claim.

The Other Side Is Blaming You

You may already know that you have a claim against the at-fault party—they were careless, and they made you suffer for it. What you may not know is what to do when they try to turn the tables on you. 

The at-fault party may try to say you were the one being careless. They may claim you were distracted behind the wheel, for example, so you weren’t giving the road proper attention. Now, you’ve been seriously injured, and they’re claiming it’s your fault. That could decrease your compensation and make it harder to financially recover from your losses.

You may need an NYC personal injury lawyer because you don’t have the tools to fight back when they accuse you of causing the accident. Fortunately, your lawyer can defend you against these claims. 

Talk to an NYC Injury Lawyer when You Need One

When you’re hurt by another person’s carelessness, it can be tough to overcome your losses. You’re hurt, you’re struggling financially, and the person responsible for your suffering may be doing everything they can to make it more difficult for you to recover. Fortunately, you don’t have to accept their actions and refusal to help. Instead, get help from a lawyer at Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP.

If you’re not sure yet what your claim is worth, reach out for guidance from your lawyer, starting with a free consultation. We can help you get compensated for your losses when you give us a call at 1-800-VICTIM2 (842-8462) or fill out the online contact form below. 

Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP Names Church of the Transfiguration Parish in Sex Abuse Lawsuits

We take every sexual abuse accusation seriously. We want to see people like you get the support and compensation they need to overcome the suffering they’ve experienced because of someone else’s egregious actions. 

Because of this commitment to the people, we’ve recently named Church of the Transfiguration Parish in a new sex abuse lawsuit. We’re determined to fight back against abusers and obtain justice for victims. If this sounds like your situation, reach out to us for support and guidance through the civil claims process. 

Sexual Abuse in the Church of the Transfiguration Parish

Father Gerald Appleby has recently been accused of committing sexual abuse against minors within the church. The account from our client states he repeatedly abused our client for four years, between 1985 and 1989. The abuse has led to years of suffering without justice, closure, or healing. 

Now, our client has a chance to file a claim as an adult and get compensated when they were previously unable to. That includes not just the economic losses suffered because of the abuse, but also the non-economic damages they suffered for decades after the abuse. Now, we want to help more people like our client get compensated for their pain and suffering. 

What New York’s Child Victims Act Means for Your Claim

Many sexual abuse victims are worried about their chances to file a lawsuit. They may be concerned they’d waited too long, and now they don’t have a chance to file for damages. Fortunately, the New York Child Victims Act can dispel your biggest fears about filing a claim. 

The Child Victims Act extends the deadline to file all the way to fifty-five years old. For a year following the act’s passing, those over fifty-five can also file a lawsuit. This act also raises the deadline to press criminal charges for those still eligible. 

The act generally makes it easier for abuse victims to get compensated for their losses. That includes taking out restrictions that made it nearly impossible to recover, such as the notice of claim. This gave you a short deadline to notify the church you planned to sue, so if you didn’t act, you’d be out of luck. Now, you have more time than ever.
