    How to claim hotel bar injury compensation


    Chic cocktail bars, modern wine bars and cosy hotel beer cellars – hotel bars today can take on a variety of different forms, depending on the type of hotel you are staying in. Enjoying a few drinks or a casual late-night bite to eat in the hotel bar will probably happen at some point during your stay, whether you’re travelling on business or enjoying a holiday.

    But what happens if you are injured in the hotel bar? Well, if you’ve been involved in an accident in a hotel bar in the UK, or in your hotel abroad (if you booked a package holiday with a UK tour operator) that has left you injured, you could claim hotel bar injury compensation if somebody else is liable. Trust your claim to Accident Advice Helpline – we’ve been endorsed by our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen.

    What sort of injuries could you suffer?

    Hotel bar injuries can include minor injuries such as cuts, bruises and sprains as well as more serious, life-changing injuries. If your accident is somebody else’s fault, you can claim hotel bar injury compensation for both minor and serious injuries, such as:

    • Slip, trip or fall injuries such as cuts, bruises and broken bones after slipping on a wet floor (when drinks have been spilt) or tripping over broken glass or crockery
    • Food poisoning from food ordered at the bar
    • Lacerations from broken glass or damaged seating in the bar area
    • Head injuries caused by objects falling from height – such as a wall-mounted speaker or lighting
    • Back or neck injuries from damaged seats collapsing and causing a fall

    It’s important to report your accident to the hotel management, as they’ll need to record this in their accident book. If you feel that somebody else is responsible for your accident, you can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline within three years of your accident to find out if you’re eligible to make a 100% no win, no fee claim.

    Why should you claim?

    Your injuries may be life-changing – a serious head injury or back injury could leave you in pain and unable to return to work or look after yourself. Claiming personal injury compensation could mean you’ll be compensated for the impact your injuries have had on your life as well as the cost of any medical expenses and loss of earnings you’ve suffered, both now and in the future. The last thing anyone expects when settling down for a drink in a hotel bar is to be injured, so take action and call Accident Advice Helpline today on 0800 689 0500 to see if you could make a claim for compensation.
