Hotel Liability Law Firm Washington, DCIf you or someone you love has been injured while on a hotel premise in Washington, DC, or in its surrounding communities, it may be in your best interest to contact a hotel liability law firm Washington, DC visitors recommend.

People come from all over the world to stay in Washington, D.C., in some of the world’s finest hotels as well as in some of the most barebones of short-stay establishments. Regardless of the class of hotel, motel, hostel, short term apartment, or Airbnb type of lodging service a person stays in, they are supposed to have a reasonable assurance of safety while on these kinds of properties. If a person is injured because of a property owner’s negligence, the property owner, or in some cases, a tenant or property manager, may be liable for expenses related to the victim’s injuries.

From poorly lit and maintained property, to poor security, to poor cleaning and health maintenance, there are many different causes of injuries that can happen on a hotel’s premises. Contacting a hotel liability law firm in Washington, DC, or in the jurisdiction where an accident occurred, may help the victim and their family to understand their rights and whether they may be entitled to compensation because of the hotel owner’s negligence, or that of another party or parties who are affiliated with the hotel.

When is a hotel liable for someone’s injuries?

Typically, a hotel may be liable when a victim of an injury that occured on the hotel’s premises can prove that they were:

one, injured on the hotel’s premises
and
two, their injury was the result of the negligence of the hotel or a party affiliated with the
hotel

While many states have similar premise liability laws each state has specific guidelines and premises in which an injured person can file a personal injury, premise liability claim. If you think that you may be entitled to compensation for injuries that occured while on a Washington, DC hotel’s property, a hotel liability law firm may be able to help you to determine whether or not you should pursue a personal injury claim.

How can a hotel’s negligence be the cause of a visitor’s injuries?

There are many different ways that a hotel owner’s or management’s negligence may be considered to be the cause of a visitor’s injuries. Many of these causes fall under a wide umbrella of a hotel’s failure to maintain their property in a way that gives visitors a reasonable assurance that they will be safe from harm or injury while visiting the hotel. If you are unsure of whether your injury, or that of someone close to you, is the result of someone else’s negligence, you may find it reassuring to discuss your particular situation with a personal injury law firm in Washington, DC that specializes in hotel liability claims

  • Violent and/or sexual assaults
  • Slip and fall or trip and fall accidents
  • Falls
  • Falling objects

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Siri Palm and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
