Traveling with children can be both rewarding and challenging. There is nothing quite like seeing something through your child's eyes - especially when that something is as novel and grand as New York City. However, it can be challenging to be away from the safety of your own home.
Your hotel may not have a responsibility to prevent every foreseeable danger, but there are some responsibilities that your hotel does have to its guests. For example, a hotel may be potentially liable for harm done to your child if the hotel:
- Failed to warn or fix a slip or trip and fall hazard that staff knew or should've known about.
- Provided a crib for your child that had been recalled by the Consumer Protection Safety Commission.
- Failed to provide adequate security and your child was assaulted, raped, or otherwise injured.
A New York Slip and Fall Attorney May be Able to Help After Any of These Injuries
If you, or your child, have been hurt because of a New York trip and fall, slip and fall, defective piece of equipment, or inadequate security, then you may be able to recover damages for the injuries sustained. Damages may include compensation for medical expenses, lost income, out-of-pocket expenses and pain and suffering.
