Hotel Injury

Hotel Injury – Right to Assume Premises Safe

While the common definition of negligence is the failure to use such care as an ordinarily prudent person would exercise under the same or similar circumstances, negligence is a relative term and the degree of care in fact should be greater or less commensurate with the circumstances…. The responsibility for the premises is primarily on the hotel, and the guests may generally assume that they are safe. Kirby v. Moehlman, 182 Va. 876 (1944).
