Top 3 causes of hotel injuries

You expect your Hawaii hotel to be an oasis. When you stay at a resort during your vacation, you want to escape from reality and spend some time in paradise. Unfortunately, your guest experience may result in an accident and injury

Despite the fact that most hotel experiences are pleasant with attentive staff and management, hotel accidents still occur. But how can your trip to paradise become a nightmare? Here are some common reasons for hotel injuries. 

1. Falls

You may suffer a fall at almost any area of a hotel if something is wrong. Famous musician Phil Collins even delayed a concert after falling in a hotel. A bathtub without rubber strips may cause you to slip and hit your head. Smooth and slippery surfaces around a swimming pool may result in a serious slip-and-fall accident. Worn carpeting, poor lighting and inadequate railing on staircases may also cause falls. 

2. Bedbugs

Your worst fear about staying at a hotel may someday come true. If housekeeping staff fails to keep rooms sanitary, a bedbug infestation may develop. Bedbugs may lurk in hotel room mattresses, pillows and furniture. If bedbugs bite you, you may get blisters or a severe allergic reaction. You may even bring the bedbugs home and need to spend a lot of time and money to eradicate the infestation. 

3. Assaults

When you are on vacation, you want to let loose. You may be carefree and not think about how there are criminals who are waiting to take advantage of you. If your hotel does not have adequate security guards and cameras to safeguard you from theft or assault, you may suffer a huge financial loss or injury. 

Your hotel has a responsibility to keep you safe from hazards. If the hotel fails to maintain a safe environment and you get an injury, you may be able to file a lawsuit.
