An accident in a hotel bar is something that rarely happens, despite the fact some people will be getting merrier than perhaps they should. The people who run the bar have a duty of care to make sure all their guests can use the bar without anything going amiss. The premises should be in good condition and should not pose any potential hazard or danger to those in the area.
Thankfully this is usually the case, whether the bar is in the UK or in another country. Since many people visit bars at one point or another though, there is the chance that every now and then an isolated accident may potentially occur. If this happens it will be important to work out what happened and why.
Examples of an accident in a hotel bar
Bars can have high bar stools and tables and chairs you can use as well. As such you can sit back and enjoy an informal drink after a day out, or perhaps a day at the beach if you are on holiday. The premises should be safe to use and there should be a good level of maintenance to ensure they do not fall below the standards you would expect.
Accident Advice Helpline has been in situations where people have contacted us about an accident they have had in a hotel bar. This might involve a slip or trip if liquid has been spilt on the floor or the floor itself has been in poor condition. Some accidents are more common than others in these circumstances, although any incident can potentially result in some painful injuries.
Could you make a claim?
You may not be aware that a potential claim could be possible even if your accident happened while you were abroad. If you were staying at a hotel as part of a package holiday the provider has a duty of care to ensure the premises are safe and able to accommodate you. This holds true with regard to services such as the hotel bar too.
So if you have had an accident in a hotel bar, make sure you call Accident Advice Helpline today. Call AAH enquiry line on 0800 689 0500 and find out whether you have a chance to make a no win, no fee* claim in search of compensation for your injuries.
