    You can make a claim against the hotel. If the fall was on hotel property, there may be insurance available to you to help with your medical bills. In addition, if it can be shown that the hotel was in some way negligent for this condition on the property, you may also pursue a personal injury claim against the hotel.

    Photos are very important for a variety of reasons. Most importantly, you need to prove that the owner of the location where you fell was negligent in some way. Without photos or measurements, this may be difficult to do. To answer your question, yes you should hire a competent attorney in California.

    You certainly can file suit against this individual. The question is whether or not it is worth your time and effort. Generally speaking this person will not be able to pay any judgment you obtain against him. If the assault on you occurred as the result of the defendant's intoxication, the case may become more worthy of pursuing. There is a law in New York (dram shop law) that holds tavern owners responsible for the negligent actions of their patrons under certain circumstances.

    Any person who testifies (at a deposition or trial) is subject to cross examination. A skillful defense attorney could question you about the prior claim and argue to the jury that you are a professional plaintiff. However, if both cases are solid your attorney can make a stronger argument that the defendant should not be absolved from responsibility simply because you were the victim in another matter.

    Based upon those facts, it seems like this would be admissible. Of course, although admissible the testimony may not be reliable.

    Did the police witness the accident? If not the ticket is subject to dismissal. Was the charge following too closely?
