Slip and fall accident claims life of Airman at local hotel

Going to stay at a hotel is something that is usually done only after considerable thought. You usually want to make sure the hotel is clean and safe. In some cases, doing your due diligence prior to check in will suffice; however, there are instances in which accidents at the hotel can happen. These accidents might end up being very serious. A recent accident at a Washington, District of Columbia, hotel shows how serious these accidents can be.

The accident happened when an Airman was staying at a hotel. He was involved in a slip and fall accident. He hit his head in the accident and the head injury was fatal. The young man, who was in the Air Force Special Operations, was declared brain dead. His family opted to donate his organs so he could be a hero and save lives after he was taken off life support.

The 29-year-old man's family friend says that he was the type of person a father could be proud of. He says he was a wonderful kid.

While this story is bittersweet because the deceased man saved eight people, his family is likely still dealing with the explosion of emotions caused by the accident and ultimate outcome. They are having to deal with his final arrangements and other factors.

Losing a family member isn't easy, especially under circumstances that might have been prevented. Anyone who has lost a family member due to a slip and fall accident or any type of negligent maintenance might opt to seek financial compensation from the responsible party. Understanding the process might help to make the decision easier.
