Many people stay at hotels for business or pleasure. While a stay at a hotel is usually enjoyable, sometimes injuries can arise. While a hotel owes its guests a duty of care, this duty does not extend to all harm that could occur, but instead to foreseeable harm. That is, harm that could be reasonably expected or has been known to occur. If a hotel breached this duty of care, a claim of negligence may be raised against the hotel. Among other responsibilities, a hotel has a duty to inspect the grounds for any dangerous conditions and keep its premises sanitary.
