Hotel & Resort Work Accidents
While millions of people stay in hotels and resorts while on relaxing and luxurious vacations each year, behind its welcoming façade the hospitality industry is actually a complex and potentially hazardous workplace for employees.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 1 in 1,000 hotel workers is injured on the job each year, with sprains/strains, cuts, falls, slips/trips and bruises among the most common injuries. More than a quarter of these injuries required more than a month off work for the individual to recover.
A Hospitality Work Injury
Many hospitality industry accidents can be severe enough to upend your life and hamper your ability to earn an income. In many cases, lost wages impact not only the person who has been injured, but also his or her entire family. After becoming injured, an individual may lose the ability to work and earn an income for an extended period of time – perhaps even indefinitely.
If You’ve Been Hurt in a Hospitality Work Accident
If you’ve been injured in a hospitality industry accident, you may be entitled to a monetary settlement to aid in your recovery. In general, the more severe the injury, the greater the medical expenses – and the greater the emotional trauma associated with the event. You may be entitled to additional compensation for lost wages if you are unable to work as a result of your injury.
