What should I do if I slipped in a hotel from the leaky pipes under my sink and landed on my tail bone hitting the back of my head?

I took a video of how bad the pipes were leaking when you turn the faucet on. It hurts when I sit down for a period of time now. I asked the hotel staff to get me the owner and they said that they won’t be in until Monday. I told them I was in pain and could barely sit down and they only offered to take off 50 percent of my room. After the terrible experience I had that day and night. I deserve much better I think, I don’t have any money to pay for any medical bills. I also had to call out from work today.

Although you might have to put out the money up front, the hotel should have some sort of medical payments coverage under its liability policy to reimburse you. You need to get medical attention for your injuries.  Find an attorney to help guide you through this. Most will offer a free consultation and can at least guide you in the right direction.
