You can use the 24-hour helpline or visit the website and take the quick and easy eligibility test to see if you have a valid public liability claim.
How to make a hotel claim: What evidence do I need?
If you would like to pursue a personal injury claim, you will need evidence to support your case and this may come in the form of medical records and details of the consultation and treatment following the incident, photographs of the room and the offending piece of furniture or the floor, for example, and eye witness accounts. At the time of the incident, it’s a good idea to take down details of anyone who witnessed the accident so that they can provide evidence if required. If you are claiming for lost earnings or disruption of travel plans, you should also provide the relevant travel receipts and details that prove that you have had to take time off work due to illness or injury.
Once they have the relevant information, the experienced personal injury lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline will work tirelessly for a successful outcome. Most clients never go to court and most consultations can take place over the telephone. The firm has a strict no win no fee* policy.
