After being hurt due to a hotel’s negligence, notify an on-staff manager as soon as you can and be certain you are given a copy of any accident report. Take photographs of the cause of your accident, if you can. You should also see a medical provider as soon as you can It might be tricky to find a doctor who can see you, as you are likely out of your hometown if you are staying in a hotel.
