A B&B – otherwise referred to as bed and breakfast accommodation – is a great place to spend the night if you are staying away from home. Bed and breakfast accommodation is often well priced and since it includes breakfast as well as your room for the night, it makes for an affordable and practical option.
Most B&Bs are run to the highest of standards. The owners take every care to make sure they provide a safe venue that guests can enjoy for the duration of their stay. There are nice rooms, a dining room in which people can have their breakfast and perhaps other services as well. It would be rare for someone to be injured in a fall of any kind at a B&B.
B&B fall compensation possibilities
Most people have a fall every now and then. They can be caused by all manner of things, and sometimes a simple loss of balance can be to blame. However on occasion you can experience a fall because of a problem with the floor you are walking across. In the case of a B&B for example, you might find you end up with injuries because you tripped over the loose edge of a carpet.
This might sound like something relatively simple but in reality the accident can be quite painful and upsetting. You could end up with cuts, bruises and perhaps even a broken bone or two. Imagine tripping over a loose bit of carpet, or even a worn section of carpet, at the top of some stairs for example, as you leave your room to go downstairs. This could cause a nasty fall if you fall down the stairs themselves.
Finding out whether B&B fall compensation could be paid to you
The best way to find out if you are entitled to a compensation payout is to talk to a lawyer who is experienced in these matters. You might find you have a good case that should be argued in court. Getting a lawyer to act on your behalf is the best course of action.
