Slip-and-fall lawsuit brought against hotel

Slipping hazards at hotels can cause a great deal of harm. Such hazards can result in hotel patrons/visitors suffering injury-causing accidents. Thus, it is very important for hotels to make sure to not negligently expose patrons/visitors to such hazards.

Recently, a case involving allegations of hotel negligence has arisen. The case is from Texas. The case involves an alleged slip-and-fall accident at a hotel in Galveston, Texas.

The accident allegedly occurred while a woman was staying at the hotel in relation to a court clerk training seminar in May 2011. According to the woman, an air conditioning vent in the hotel was leaking water onto a marble floor below it. The woman claims that she slipped on this water and fell. According to the woman, this slip-and-fall accident caused her to suffer shoulder, neck and back injuries.

The woman alleges that the hotel acted negligently in regards to its premises and that this negligence caused her accident.

A lawsuit has been brought in a court in Texas by the woman against the hotel in connection to these allegations. The article on the Southeast Texas Record's website which reported this story did not mention what specific relief the woman is asking for in her lawsuit. It will be interesting to see what ultimately happens in this case.

No hotel patron/visitor should have to suffer injuries because a hotel acted negligently in regards to its premises. Thus, one hopes that all hotels make sure to act properly when it comes to the safety of their premises.
