    How to claim guest house slip compensation


    Slips, trips and falls are the most common types of injuries that people claim personal injury compensation for, and if you have been injured whilst staying in a guest house, you may be in two minds as to whether to make a guest house slip compensation claim. You have the right to enjoy your holiday without the risk of being involved in an accident – and the guest house owners have a legal duty to ensure that their premises are safe for guests. That includes public areas such as the dining room, hallway and even the car park, as well as the guest bedrooms and bathrooms.

    A slip and fall could cause serious injuries, with elderly guests particularly at risk of broken bones and more serious injuries. Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim guest house slip compensation if it has been three years or less since your accident.

    What’s happened to cause your slip?

    Wet floors are a common cause of slipping accidents, and it could be that the guest house owners mopped the entrance hall floor but didn’t leave out a warning sign or warn guest of the danger of slipping. Or perhaps another guest has spilled orange juice or tea in the dining room and you’ve slipped on the wet floor, before this could be cleaned up.

    Bathrooms are another area of guest houses where slips can commonly occur. You could slip in a bath where no mat has been provided, or if the previous guest has used bath oil and the owners have failed to clean the bath before your stay, you could slip. Slipping in an enclosed space such as a bathroom could cause serious injuries as you could hit your head on the sink or the bath tub as you fall, suffering serious head injuries, neck or shoulder injuries that could leave you suffering from ongoing pain.

    Chronic injuries

    A chronic injury such as a back or neck injury sustained after a slip in a guest house can affect your ability to work and enjoy your life. Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim guest house slip compensation if you’ve suffered injuries which have impacted your future – we’ll gather evidence in support of your claim to prove that the guest house owners have been negligent, leading to your accident. Even if you have suffered minor injuries such as a sprained ankle from slipping on a wet floor, you could be eligible to claim.
