Hotel Injury

Postby Basilios » Sun Nov 27, 2016 5:00 am

I was severely injured at a Georgia hotel. I am going to attempt to sue the hotel in a pro se fashion. In my state(Florida) the public can go onto a state web site that is responsible for hotel inspections and one can find out and view inspection reports for any hotel in the state. I can see which hotels were cited for violations, what the code violations were, and if the violations were classified as serious or moderate violations. I do not live in Georgia, but I have searched the Inet to find a site that would allow me to view hotel inspection reports so that I can see if this hotel had been cited for code violations that contributed to mt injury...but I can't find any site that will allow me to do so. I can't even find out on the Inet which state agency in Georgia is responsible for hotel code inspections...Can you tell me if there is such a site where I can view hotel inspectors reports on any given hotel? Thank you. PS: I have read many of the nswers you have provided to the public and I must say you impress me very much! Great service!

Jeff, I am not aware of any site like the one your mentioning, but the information should be public records.  I would probably start with the Department of Professional Regulation through the State.  You should also look at county and city records as they are the ones that usually do the code inspections.  If you cannot find it online, I would call Georgia's DPR, and call the code enforcement departments of the county and city in which the hotel sits.  They can point you in the right direction.

I would caution you, though, on going pro se in a different state.  It is hard enough to do in your own state, and I really don't recommend that either, but putting aside knowledge of the laws, you will most likely be required to appear in court from time to time.  A suit will require a great deal of time, and possibly money, so it might be worthwhile to sit down now, before you file suit, and see whether you should retain counsel.  I have seen many occasions where a judge admonishes a pro se plaintiff, or defendant, because the person did not know basic procedural rules, or rules of evidence.

Good Luck.
