Yes, if the injury or wrongful death can be connected to the hotel. Most of these cases involve hotel negligence, meaning the hotel acted or failed to act in a way that would be reasonable for the hotel industry. Our lawyers investigate hotel operations looking for evidence of negligence in the following areas: maintenance, security, fire prevention, evacuation, safety, training, staffing and supervision.
Our law firm has won millions in cases against big hotel chains and their armies of corporate attorneys.
Personal injury and wrongful death claims against hotels generally involve one of the following:
Punitive damages can be pursued in cases where the hotel is grossly negligent (not cleaning a cooling tower after Legionella bacteria is found, not replacing broken fire alarms or windows, not making a repair that management knows is necessary to prevent harm). Punitive damages, which can be in the millions of dollars, are meant to punish the hotel and deter future bad behavior.
Cases of serious injury and wrongful death against hotels can be worth millions, but it is critical to get an attorney with experience litigating these kinds of cases. Attorney Fred Pritzker is our lead attorney for these cases and represents injury victims and their families nationwide. Fred’s national practice is important because most of these cases involve several states: the state where the accident happened, the state in which the victim resided at the time of the accident, and the state where the hotel corporate offices are located.
