Have you been injured while staying at a hotel in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex?
Guests expect a certain duty of care when staying at a hotel, and Texas law allows those who’ve been injured (under certain circumstances) to hold the hotel owners financially responsible for any related damages you’ve suffered.

Although many hotels invest heavily in the safety of their guests, thousands of people are still injured in hotels and motels every year due to no fault of their own. While some injuries are indeed the result of carelessness and nothing else, many such accidents would have been 100% preventable if the hotel staff had not been negligent with regard to its legal duties.
In cases where a hotel guest is injured because of an avoidable situation, staff carelessness, or neglect, the hotel may be held liable for any damages a guest incurs under what’s known as premises liability law.
Some of the most-common causes of injuries that occur on hotel premises are:
- Slips, trips and falls on uneven carpet, poorly maintained flooring, or slippery surfaces.
- Accidents in or around swimming pools, including slip & falls or drownings.
- Electric shocks or electrocution caused by poor wiring.
- Fires and carbon monoxide poisoning (especially if alarms were disabled, extinguishers were missing, or exits were blocked).
- Assault, sexual assault, and other criminal acts caused by inadequate security or by staff themselves.
Premises liability issues can be difficult to prove.
Hotel guests are classified as invitees (as opposed to licensees or trespassers), and as such, the hotel owes them the highest duty of care. Any time the hotel is negligent in exercising this duty of care and a guest is injured or wrongfully killed as a result, the victim may have grounds for a premises liability claim/lawsuit.
With regard to hotel injury cases in Texas, negligence can be a tough standard to prove. Luckily, our Dallas attorneys have handled countless premises liability cases over the past 20 years, and we know exactly how to give you the best chance at securing a fair settlement or winning your lawsuit.
