    What hotel accident evidence can I collect on my iPhone?


    If your dream holiday turns into a nightmare because of a hotel accident, you may wish to consider claiming travel accident compensation. Everyone has the right to stay in a safe, secure place when they book a hotel and if you feel like this has been contravened, Accident Advice Helpline could help to ease your troubles and get you the compensation you deserve.

    Types of hotel accident

    Whether you’re jetting off for the holiday of a lifetime with your partner or family or you’re staying in a hotel for business purposes, the owners and members of staff have a duty to ensure that they adhere to health and safety measures to protect customers. The aim of these guidelines is to try and reduce the risk of accidents and illnesses, including:

    • Slips, trips and falls
    • Falls from height
    • Food poisoning and infectious diseases
    • Swimming pool accidents
    • Burns and scalds
    • Injuries caused by faulty electrical equipment
    • Injuries caused by damaged or broken furniture

    If you have had an accident abroad and you were not to blame, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

    What kind of evidence can I collect on my iPhone?

    Evidence is essential to support your travel accident claim and using an iPhone is a really effective way of collecting and recording important data and images. The iPhone has a range of features, which can really help to build up a picture of what happened and prove that you were not to blame for the injuries you sustained or the inconvenience you experienced when abroad. Using a mobile phone, you can take pictures of an accident scene, record people speaking or a situation unfurling, take photographs of injuries you sustained or issues that have caused the injury, such as a broken chair or a wet floor, which was not signposted, for example. You can also take down details of eyewitnesses and jot down notes about the incident while it is still fresh in your mind. You can also store messages and emails that you have received from travel agents or hotel owners, which may be used by lawyers.

    How do I make a travel accident compensation claim?

    If you’ve had an accident abroad or you would like to take public liability action against a negligent owner or a company as a result of a hotel accident, gather all the relevant information and call the expert personal injury lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline.
