Most of us don’t pay a second thought to our safety when staying in a B&B – you’re on holiday and you’re there to relax and have a good time. Eating, drinking and exploring the local area are all on the cards, and the last thing anyone expects is to be injured in an accident at their accommodation. But if you have been injured as a result of negligence at your B&B, making a claim for dangerous B&B compensation could be on the cards.
Accident Advice Helpline has handled hundreds of similar claims since we were established in 2000 and our personal injury lawyers could help you claim dangerous B&B compensation on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, however you have been injured.
What could go wrong at a B&B?
Whilst most B&B accommodation is perfectly safe, if the owners of the establishment are negligent, you could be injured in one of the following ways:
- Electric shock from a faulty electric socket or appliance, such as a faulty hair-dryer or TV
- Scalded by a faulty shower – for example if the temperature won’t turn down
Food poisoning after eating at the B&B
- Slip or trip – slipping on a wet floor in the dining room or tripping over trailing cables in the guest lounge, even slipping in the icy car park
- Injured by faulty appliances exploding or catching fire – a hair-dryer, for example
- Objects falling from height, such as the B&B sign falling on you
The owners of the B&B have a responsibility to ensure that their establishment is safe for guests to visit and if they have failed to take steps to keep you safe, you could make a personal injury claim.
Why should you claim?
Why should you be the one who suffers if somebody else is to blame? If you’ve suffered broken bones after a fall and you need to take time off work, you’ll suffer financially after an accident that wasn’t even your fault. Even minor injuries may mean taking a few days off which can affect you financially, not to mention your holiday has been ruined. Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim the compensation you deserve – just call our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 to find out more about what happens next.
