Many serious slip-and-fall injuries in Orange County take place in places of business, and one of the most common locations for slip-and-fall injuries is in hotels, motels, and other places travelers stop for the night. Although you may expect the hotel you stay in to make the health and wellbeing of guests a priority, the sad truth is that many slip-and-fall victims have suffered serious—and preventable—falls due to the negligence of a hotel’s owners, managers, or employees.
How an Anaheim Injury Attorney Can Help after You’ve Been Injured in a Hotel Fall
If you have been injured in a fall due to a safety hazard the hotel should have known about, you might face a complicated road. To get payment for your medical expenses, you may be facing a large, national hotel chain, their legal team, and their insurance team. Unfortunately, many hotel fall victims feel pressured to accept a settlement that doesn’t cover the cost of their injuries, or they may be “tricked” into giving up their rights. This is why it’s so important to consult with an Anaheim injury attorney who can:
- Protect your rights. Hotel insurance companies are not above trying to trick you out of your rights by getting you to do or say something that might wreck your claim. An experienced Orange County personal injury attorney can clearly explain your rights and make sure your claim is protected.
- Gather evidence. It is up to you to prove negligence in a California personal injury lawsuit, but that’s often more difficult than it may seem. Your attorney has access to the knowledge and resources needed to build a strong case in your favor.
- Handle communication with the insurance company. Your attorney can handle all of paperwork and correspondence with the hotel and the insurance company, as well as keep you advised of time limits and other important information.
- Guide you through the steps you need to take. You don’t have to go through this alone. An experienced attorney will be your ally in this difficult time and can clearly explain what you need to do, what your options are, and what comes next.
