Lake Villa, IL asked in Personal Injury for Michigan

Q: can I request anything from this hotel or is there any legal action I could take? This is blatant neglect to me.

I stayed at a hotel in Southfield Michigan and noticed the sliding glass door for the shower was coming off the rail on the back top rollers. My roommate notified the front desk about the issue and the man told him he will call a work request in and to just be careful with it. I went to take a shower and the sliding glass door came off the roller completely and hit my neck and ground and completely shattered. It rained glass all over me causing small cuts everywhere with a decent amount of blood which lasted a couple of hours. I also was stuck in the bathroom with glass shards stabbing my feet

A: Yikes! I would think so. At the very least, I would be in contact with hotel management - in the case of a chain hotel, I'm not talking about the local people; I'm talking about the actual parent company.

Whether it makes sense to pursue a personal injury lawsuit depends on a number of factors, and should be contemplated only through advice of local counsel.
