Personal injury: Lawsuit filed after fall in hotel

Every year, thousands of people across the United States are injured due to hazardous conditions in stores, restaurants and other businesses. In the state of Illinois, the owners and operators of these public establishments are obligated to provide a safe and hazard-free environment for all lawful visitors. Foreign objects on walkways, wet floors or areas that have fallen under disrepair are examples of hazards that are capable of causing personal injury. If a hazard cannot be removed, warning signs must be posted to alert customers to the potential dangers. Unfortunately, not all business and property owners will adhere to these rules.

A woman in another state filed a lawsuit after she allegedly slipped and fell while visiting a hotel. According to the lawsuit, the woman was traveling with her daughter and stopped at the hotel to ask about a room. As they went to view the room, according to the claim, the plaintiff encountered wet floor tiles that had just been mopped.

Allegedly, the woman slipped on the wet floor and fell. The woman claims to have suffered injuries to her neck, head and back. She accuses the defendant of negligence and alleges that there were no signs to warn visitors of the wet floor. The plaintiff seeks a trial by jury, monetary damages and all just relief.

A lot of accidents are unpredictable, but some accidents can be prevented by taking the proper precautions. When the negligence of another party contributes to personal injury, legal action can be taken. By consulting a seasoned attorney and filing a claim, victims in Illinois could be awarded much-needed compensation to help pay medical expenses and replace lost wages.
