Whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure, at some point you will probably end up dining in the hotel restaurant. You might be staying in a five-star hotel with a range of restaurants to choose from, or enjoying an overnight stay at a hotel which offers a more casual dining experience. But the potential for accidents to happen in hotel restaurants is always present – and if you’ve been injured whilst dining at your hotel, claiming hotel restaurant injury compensation is an option. Been struck down by food poisoning or broken your leg after slipping on a wet floor? Accident Advice Helpline is here to make sure you get the compensation you deserve, and our professional personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.
How could you be injured?
Food poisoning is one of the most common reasons to make a claim for hotel restaurant injury compensation, and if you have eaten contaminated food and suffered from sickness and diarrhoea, you could find yourself eligible to be compensated for your pain and suffering. Food poisoning is usually the result of unhygienic conditions or improperly cooked food, and you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence if your holiday is ruined as a result of somebody else’s negligence.
Slips, trips and falls are also a common type of accident which could occur in a hotel restaurant. Tripping on damaged flooring or steps or slipping on a wet floor (for example if drinks or food are spilt and not properly cleaned up) could leave you with injuries ranging from a sprained ankle to serious head injuries, if you hit your head as you fall. However you have been injured, if somebody else is to blame you can make a personal injury claim. Perhaps a waiter spilt hot food or drink on you, scalding you? The hotel could be held liable for your injuries and ordered to pay you compensation.
