Dangerous property conditions at hotel blamed for injuries

An unsafe business property in West Virginia has the potential to change a person's life for the worse when serious injuries result. One woman in a different state recently blamed dangerous property conditions at a hotel for causing her to suffer injuries. She has filed a premises liability lawsuit against the operation.

The woman reported claims she was a guest at the hotel in Oct. 2013. It is alleged that she tripped over an extension cord. She asserts that cord had been left in a walkway area near the hotel ballroom. 

The woman alleges that the fall caused her to suffer both external and internal injuries. She also ended up losing time from work as well as incurring considerable medical expenses. She claims that the Palmer House Hotel in Chicago was negligent in that it did not ensure that its property was safe for the public to use.

The woman seeks a monetary judgment for incidental, medical and drug expenses. She is also seeking general damages, along with punitive damages, which are sometimes awarded in cases of egregious fault. It is within the rights of any invitee who suffers injuries due to dangerous property conditions at a business to seek justice through the civil court system. Many cases involving premises liability in West Virginia are resolved based upon evidence concerning what property owners knew or should have known regarding the dangerous property conditions that caused a plaintiff's injuries. Legal guidance may help injured victims to understand the strengths and weaknesses of their claims, and an attorney can provide ongoing support in pursuing justice based upon evidence of negligence.
