Myrtle Beach Hotel Accident Lawyer

Hire Maguire
100% Secure & Confidential

A popular vacation destination for families and spring break crowds alike, the Myrtle Beach and Grand Strand areas of South Carolina have more than their fair share of hotels and visitors to the area. To attract as many of these visitors as possible, some resorts and hotels may focus more on the amenities and services they offer and not pay enough to the safety and well-being of their guests.

For visitors, the result can mean serious injuries from falls. If you are the victim of an unsafe condition at an area resort or hotel, The Maguire Law Firm can help.

Serving the counties of Horry, Georgetown and Marion, South Carolina, the premises liability lawyers at Maguire Law Firm represent people who have been seriously injured in hotel or resort accidents. Call us at 843-894-3502. You can also contact us online.

Most Common Types Of Accidents

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, serious falls or accidents within a hospitality setting, such as a hotel, motel or resort, occur most often in:

  • Stairways
  • Balconies or landings
  • Ramps
  • Parking lots
  • Bathtubs or showers

The factors that are identified as the cause of the accidents include poor lighting, defects in guardrails or handrails, slippery surfaces, inadequate landing areas, poor field of vision, lack of security and weather conditions that create slippery conditions. If a hotel is aware of poorly maintained areas, or any area needing improvement, they are obligated to conduct repairs or make personnel adjustments for the safety of their guests and employees.

Always Check Your Surroundings

For you and your family’s safety, when staying in a hotel or resort, make sure to be aware of your surroundings, identify all exits, keep a watchful eye on floor surfaces and bring any safety concerns you may have to attention of hotel personnel. While diligence often pays off, there is a potential for an unforeseen accident, and having to spend time in a hospital or emergency room can ruin a vacation.

We believe in the importance of preparing for trial rather than settlement. This provides a stronger framework for negotiation and at the same time gives us a head start on the litigation process if it becomes necessary to protect our clients’ interests by proceeding to trial.

Our preparation includes a thorough review of all the relevant medical information, close consultation with a variety of individuals as needed, and careful planning that will enable us to translate that information clearly and plainly to a judge or jury in ways that can make a real difference in the outcome of the case.

Hospitality Guidelines

Hospitality properties have specific guidelines regarding the thickness, type of flooring surfaces and resistance factors to limit slips and falls by employees and guests on both wet and dry surfaces. The pool area, for example, requires a higher slip resistance factor than the guest room areas. Recent studies have shown that the number of slip-and-fall events increased as the difference between the required resistance factor and the actual factor varied.
