Safety for Hotel Guests
When we travel and stay in hotels, we generally trust that the hotel ownership, management and staff have made sure conditions are safe. During a vacation or while staying at a hotel for other reasons, you have a reasonable expectation that the hotel and its premises are free from any hazards that can cause harm. Hotel owners, management and staff have a legal responsibility to keep their guests safe.
If you have been hurt in an accident due to hotel negligence, talk with a St. Louis hotel accident lawyer from our Missouri office.

Personal Injury Accidents in Hotels
Most accidents in hotels occur as a result of some kind of basic negligence on the part of the hotel ownership, management or staff, resulting in dangerous situations:
- Stairways and elevators
- Wet or slippery floors
- Parking lots
- Inadequate security
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Inadequate lighting
- Negligent security measures
- Improperly maintained or unsupervised swimming pools
Dangerous Hotel Room Products
Another common cause for hotel accidents and injuries involves faulty products within hotel rooms and lobbies:
- Electric shocks from faulty coffee makers, televisions, air conditioners and lights
- Falls from improperly secured windows and porches
- Burns from sinks and showers
- Spoiled or contaminated food (food poisoning)
