What Kind of Injuries Have Marriott Guests Sustained?
Most slip and fall accidents at Marriott do not result in severe or critical injuries. However, at times serious injuries can occur. For instance, guests may slip, trip and fall due to the slippery surface in or around swimming pools, which can be very dangerous.
If the perimeter area of a swimming pool is excessively smooth, guests can fall. Frequently, these types of surfaces are partially made of concrete, and a guest who falls can suffer severe injuries, such as broken bones and head trauma. Furthermore, incorrectly marked steps inside a pool can cause a guest to lose their footing.
If you suffered a serious injury while staying as a guest at Marriott its employees acted negligently, you may be able to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the hotel. You may be entitled to obtain damages for your injury.
Some of the usual kinds of injuries that individuals suffer in slip and fall accidents are:
- Spinal cord injury
- Ligament tear
- Tendon tear

- Medical expenses
- Lost earnings
