It most certainly is, to be injured while on a vacation. Essentially, that would constitute certain "pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment" if a lawsuit is filed and is successful.
However, because of the legal theories mentioned above, a Court would most likely hold that the accident which led to your injuries and subsequent medical care, bills and pain and suffering was not reasonably foreseeable under the circumstances (meaning you would not get anything, let alone the cost of medical expenses that the premise owner is currently offering). That is, again, because any inspection that could have discovered the issue that led to your fall would not fall under being reasonable under the circumstances.
Now, if there is evidence that the premise owner knew of the condition prior to your accident, than that indeed would make them legally liable for your injuries and medical expenses. However, with matters like yours, the only way to determine if they knew of the condition prior to your accident would be to file suit, conduct discovery (which is essentially an investigation) and take sworn testimony of individuals employeed by the hotel in the hopes that they admit that they had some type of knowledge of the defect (an admission of this would be highly unlikely as there would most likely be no proof to contradict their answer in the negative to whether they knew of this condition). As you can imagine, to do this would be very expensive and would most likely lead to an unfavorable result to you.
I am sorry the news could not be better. As an attorney, I am obligated to inform individuals of the accurate state of law and how the law is applied to the given facts presented. It is only in this way I can be of assistance.
That being said, it never hurts to call an attorney licensed in the jurisdiction in which the accident happened. With cases like yours, oftentimes attorneys may have different opinions (like medical doctors may have regarding a possible diagnosis). Most attorneys offer free phone consultations where you and the attorney can discuss if any legal action can be taken. It is highly advised that you take advantage of such consultations as the worst that can happen is that you spend around 10 minutes on a phone call.
