The Philadelphia inadequate security and premises liability lawyers of Reiff & Bily are receiving more calls than usual concerning breaches of security at resorts and hotels. Traditionally, hotels are filled to capacity during the Thanksgiving and winter holiday season; this year however, hotels are not booking up due to the severe economic downturn in the economy. Surveys indicate that there will be 600,000 fewer travelers staying in hotels this Thanksgiving. As a result, hotels will be forced to cut back on their expenditures in areas that will affect the well-being and security of their patrons.
Recently, we have received an unusual number of reports of hotel thefts, assaults and food poisoning. We urge our clients and others to take extra steps to secure themselves, their children and valuables when traveling and staying in hotels.
Sometimes these attacks are from hotel staff and employees; other times they are instigated by outsiders who are improperly on the premises.
If you or a loved one are injured or attacked while staying at a hotel or resort, please feel free to contact the attorneys that specialize in “inadequate security" at the firm of Reiff & Bily so that we may assist you as soon as possible.
