Did you close the curtain? A personal injury lawyer can investigate. Probably a tough road to hoe.

You need to document your injury with the property owner and get proper medical care for your injuries. Hopefully you told somebody working in the gym that you were injured and get information of any witnesses if there were any.

Good Luck.

Slip and fall cases can be very difficult. Different jurisdictions have different laws as to whether you can recover for injuries due to an "open and obvious" condition. A recent case from Ky. affirmed a dismissal of a slip-and-fall case in a motel bathroom, finding no liability on the part of the motel. You should consult with a NC personal injury lawyer about whether you have a case. You should also investigate whether the motel may maintain "med pay" coverage which will cover your medical bills regardless of fault. Good luck.

Fundamentally, a property owner, even a commercial owner, is not liable just because someone got hurt on their property. Negligence must be shown and in a slip and fall case, the defendant will always argue that the accident victim was primarily at fault. I discuss slip and fall cases on the slip and fall page of my website below.
