When Is a Hotel’s Legal Responsibility When It Comes to Guest Safety?
Hotels are not liable for every accident or injury that may occur on their premises. So if you are hurt in an accident, you need to prove that the hotel violated some legal “duty of care” owed to you. This typically means showing the hotel’s ownership or management were somehow negligent in carrying out their responsibilities. Here are a few hypothetical examples:
- You tripped over a piece of torn or fraying carpet while walking through the hotel’s casino.
- You were injured due to a known defective condition on the property, such as a broken elevator or a defective piece of equipment in your room.
- You slipped and fell while walking near the hotel pool because excess water had pooled due to insufficient drainage.
- You were injured by a third party who was allowed into your room due to negligent or inadequate hotel security.
As a hotel customer, you are considered an “invitee” under Nevada law. This means the hotel owner does have a duty of care to regularly inspect the premises, identify potential safety hazards, and take reasonable steps to correct any potential risks to patron safety.

Las Vegas hotels are no strangers to accidents. In many cases, the hotel and their insurance company will quickly try to settle any potential personal injury claim–often for a fraction of the victim’s actual damages. The hotels are counting on the victim being desperate for quick cash and not speaking with a lawyer first. In other cases, the hotel may simply stonewall and deny that it has done anything wrong.
In either scenario, it is in your best interest to work with an attorney who is experienced in building cases against hotels. Keep in mind, much of the evidence in these types of cases–surveillance camera footage, maintenance logs, et cetera–remains under the hotel’s control. It is therefore difficult, if not impossible, for the victim to gather the evidence they need to prove their personal injury claim without the assistance of a qualified attorney who knows how to conduct a proper investigation.
