What should I do if I am injured in a hotel?
If you are injured in a hotel accident, you should take the following steps to get yourself the help you need and maximize your chances of winning a future premises liability claim:
- First, call the police and notify the hotel management of your accident.
- Ask any witnesses for their name, phone number, and email so they may corroborate your claim at a later date.
- Take pictures of the unsafe hotel condition that caused you to slip and fall before anyone has a chance to clear it away.
- Ensure you receive all medical documentation pertaining to your injuries before leaving the hospital.
- Retain the services of an experienced Texas personal injury attorney who can gather and present all other evidence needed to win your personal injury claim. For instance, in certain cases, our firm may be able to subpoena surveillance footage of your accident as it happened.
What is the statute of limitations for premises liability claims in Texas?
Every state has a statute of limitations in place when it comes to personal injury claims. The statute of limitations, simply put, is the timeframe in which every wrongly injured individual has to sue the party responsible for their injuries. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is, generally, two years, you will, under most circumstances, have two years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the party responsible. If you wait any longer than two years, there is a very good chance that you will be permanently time-barred from suing. Do not let this happen. We are ready to help you today–all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
