We all love a little slice of luxury and the UK has some excellent hotels that have this in abundance. Self-catering is all well and good, but when you need some pampering by those who know how, a hotel is usually the best option. Whether you like a family break or prefer a romantic weekend for two, staying in a hotel is something we all love and enjoy.
How can I have an accident whilst staying at a hotel?
Although UK hotels have strict health & safety procedures in place, accidents can happen anywhere and at any time. The hotel staff will be more than happy to ensure that your stay with them is safe and trouble free but sometimes that is not enough. Here is a list of possible scenarios that could result in an injury whilst staying at your hotel of choice:
- You are walking through a public area and trip over some cleaning apparatus that was left on the floor.
- The dining room has just been polished and you walk through the room and slip on the floor, injuring your back.
- You receive an electric shock whilst operating the kettle in your hotel room
- The lights stop working in your hotel room and you fall over some furniture and injure your leg
All of these are common scenarios and none of them are your fault, so you could possibly make a successful claim for personal injury financial compensation.
I’ve had a hotel accident, how can I claim for personal injury compensation?
Okay, do not panic and write down exactly what happened to cause this accident in the first place. You should seek medical help and speak to a member of the hotel staff immediately. Ask for any witnesses to give you their details in case you need to speak to them later on. Once you have received your medical attention, you should contact a personal injury expert.
