    How to claim guest house fall compensation


    Staying in a guest house is often a much more relaxing experience than booking a room at a chain hotel, and in many rural areas, guest houses are the only accommodation option available. Whether you’re holidaying in a tiny, turn-of-the-century guest house or a modern guest house in the heart of the city centre, you could suffer injuries if you’re involved in an accident during your stay.

    Slips, trips and falls are amongst the most common types of accidents to occur in guest houses, with injuries ranging from cuts and bruises to serious head injuries. But there is some good news. Accident Advice Helpline could help you make a 100% no win, no fee* claim for guest house fall compensation if you’ve been the victim of an accident that was caused by somebody else’s negligence.

    What causes guest house fall accidents?

    Guest house owners have a legal duty to ensure that their premises are safe for visitors – this includes the public areas such as the hallways and dining room as well as the guest house bedrooms. Failing to maintain the premises to a safe standard could lead to an accident; here are some common causes of guest house fall accidents:

    • Loose carpet or damaged floor tiles leading to a trip
    • Damaged stairs or loose carpet on stairs could cause a trip and fall
    • A broken or damaged banister could lead to a fall from height on the stairs
    • A wet floor that has recently been cleaned (or had something spilt on it) could lead to a slip
    • Boxes of stuff or other hazards lying around could cause a trip and fall
    • Icy or snow-covered steps leading up to the guest house could cause a nasty fall during the winter months

    If you’ve been injured and feel the guest house owners could have done more to prevent your accident, claiming guest house fall compensation could be an option. A fall can lead to some pretty nasty injuries, ranging from cuts, grazes and bruises to a serious head injury or facial injury.

    Time off work

    If you’ve taken time off work to recover from your injuries – perhaps treatment in hospital for a concussion has been necessary – then your earnings will normally be affected. Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 and we can help you claim personal injury compensation to cover your loss of earnings, so you can focus on getting better instead of worrying about your finances.
