Like many people, you’ve probably stayed in a hotel at one point or another. This could have happened for many reasons. Perhaps you needed somewhere to stay on the way from one place to another, if the journey was a particularly long one. Perhaps you wanted to stay in a hotel for a few nights to give you the opportunity to explore a particular city or area.
Whatever the reason might be to book a room in a hotel, you would expect the entire experience to be a pleasant and settled one. You certainly wouldn’t have any expectation of having an accident while you were there.
How could you have an accident in a hotel?
UK hotel accident compensation is sometimes paid out when someone has an accident that was not their fault. However this is not the only requirement for compensation to be paid. That accident must also have been caused by someone else in some way. Very often this will not be deliberate, but instead will be caused through negligence.
For instance, if you slip and fall while walking across the hotel lobby and it turns out the floor was wet and not marked as such, this would mean the cleaner had been negligent. Similarly, if you ask for a bath mat to put in your bath so you don’t slip, and it is not provided to you, leading to you slipping and hurting yourself, you could end up making a UK hotel accident compensation claim as a result.
