Common accidents befalling Chicago visitors
If you’re traveling to Chicago, the chances are good you’ll be doing two things: seeing the sights, and staying in a hotel. Because of that, tourists are at risk of certain types of accidents that locals may not be. Gainsberg Law routinely represents families and travelers who were hurt by:
- Swimming pool accidents. When tourists are injured in a swimming pool, the owner of the pool may be liable if basic maintenance and safety standards are not met.
- Slip and falls. Property owners have a duty to keep walkways and floors free from debris and dangerous obstructions. Failure to maintain these areas can lead to serious tourism injuries.
- Hotel elevator accidents. Elevators become extremely dangerous when hotels fail to keep them in correct operating order. Doors that aren’t working properly or jolting movements can lead to injuries to the occupants of the elevator.
- Inadequate hotel security. Hotel operators must take measures to keep their guests safe while on their premises. Inadequate security measures can lead to theft and assault.
- Amusement park ride malfunctions. Families love to spend their vacations at amusement parks. Owners and operators must take action to maintain the safety of each ride and attraction. Failure to do so places visitors at significant risk of injury.
Vacations are a time for rest, relaxation, and fun. Chicago offers a variety of enjoyable activities for tourists to participate in while vacationing. From hotels and restaurants to amusement parks and water activities, tourists have the right to expect a reasonable level of safety when utilizing these amenities. However, a vacation can turn disastrous when the owners and operators of these facilities fail to meet adequate standards of care and maintenance. A knowledgeable Chicago tourism accident attorney assists in holding all liable parties responsible when injuries occur.
