    How to claim guest house trip compensation


    Are you the type of person who prefers to stay in a guest house over a chain of hotels? Guest houses are often family-owned establishments which provide a more personal service, and in many rural areas they are the only available option when it comes to accommodation. So if you’re holidaying in the UK and spending a few nights in a guest house, you’re sure to enjoy a relaxing break in an environment that feels like home.

    Unfortunately, if the guest house owners don’t take their job seriously, you could find yourself injured in an accident – it’s their responsibility to ensure their guest house is a safe place for visitors, and a claim for guest house trip compensation could be on the cards if you’re injured during your stay.

    Proving negligence occurred

    In order to make a claim for guest house trip compensation, you’ll need to prove that negligence on the part of the owners led to your accident and injuries – that’s where Accident Advice Helpline can help. We’ll gather evidence to support your claim, however you have been injured, and our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee** basis, lifting the worry of legal fees from your shoulders.

    But how do trip accidents in guest houses occur? Well, loose or damaged flooring is one of the most common causes for a trip and fall. For example loose carpet or a broken floor tile could easily cause a trip, whilst damaged treads or carpet on stairs could also lead to a fall. It might be that you have tripped on damaged steps as you entered the guest house, or maybe trailing cables from a lamp or appliance caused your trip. Whether you have suffered cuts and bruises, broken bones or a serious injury such as a head injury, you could find yourself eligible to make a personal injury claim, but should you go ahead?

    No need for court

    Don’t let the prospect of going to court deter you from claiming compensation for your accident. After all, if the guest house owners have been negligent, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries. Most claims will never make it to court and are settled over the phone, giving you one less thing to worry about. So why not call Accident Advice Helpline today on 0800 689 0500 and find out if we could help you make a claim after your guest house accident?
