    Most common accidents whilst staying in a hotel


    Whether you have chosen to holiday abroad or in the UK this year, one of the last things that you consider when booking your jaunt is potential accidents whilst staying in a hotel. While a travel accident compensation claim is the last thing that you want to deal with when you get home, various holiday accidents whilst staying in a hotel could be the fault of the hotel owner and therefore you could be entitled to a compensation pay out.

    Common accidents whilst staying in a hotel

    Some of the most common accidents whilst staying in a hotel include, but are not limited to:

    • General slips, trips and falls – due to wet flooring, poor housekeeping or unmarked hazardous flooring
    • Falls down stairs
    • Food poisoning
    • Infection or illness due to unsanitary conditions
    • Drowning in plunge baths, pools or hot tubs

    No matter the nature of your accident on holiday, at Accident Advice Helpline we can look over the details of your claim and advise you on whether or not your case is worth pursuing.

    We will only advise that you continue with your case if we have faith that your claim is likely to be successful. Therefore, before we proceed, we will determine liability for the harm and distress you have endured.

    How to prove liability for accidents whilst staying in a hotel

    Generally speaking, the most important aspect is proving that you, yourself, are not liable for the hotel accident in question. Therefore, you need to gather some evidence to suggest liability lies with a third party.

    Photographs of the problem that caused your hotel accident is a good starting point, as are any witness details. You will need to have medical evidence of the injury or illness you sustained. This can be medical reports or GP notes, for examples. Photographs of any visible injuries are also helpful.

    Before contacting us, be sure that any accidents whilst staying in a hotel that you wish to claim for occurred within the last three years. Otherwise, it is unlikely that you will be able to claim personal injury compensation.
