Can I pursue legal action after a hotel accident?

In New Jersey, property owners are legally required to ensure that their grounds are properly maintained and kept safe for guests. In terms of a hotel, the property can be maintained by hotel management and the staff they employ by performing routine inspections. This allows them to become aware of any potential hazards so they can be repaired right away before any guests can become injured. Failing to practice these inspections or fix hazardous issues instantly can lead to serious injuries. Many times, these injuries lead to severe physical, emotional, and financial damages. With that, injured parties can pursue legal action by filing a personal injury claim against the hotel for negligence.
