How likely is it that anyone would suffer an accident in a hotel restaurant? These venues tend to be quite busy, especially during the evenings, as guests at the hotel make the most of being able to enjoy a meal and a drink on-site. For the most part these visits to the restaurant take place without any problems at all, as people enjoy a lovely meal, great service and good surroundings. However, things can potentially go wrong on occasion too.
You may wonder how you could suffer an accident in a hotel restaurant. Lots of things can potentially happen in these situations depending on how the restaurant is run. Every restaurant owner has a duty of care to ensure their guests are able to enjoy the restaurant without anything untoward happening. This includes making sure the premises are in good condition.
Claiming at home or abroad
Some people have had accidents in a restaurant abroad, which can be more difficult to resolve in situations where there are language barriers and different legal systems in place. However, similar accidents can occur in venues around the world – even at home. For example slips and trips are among the more common incidents people have suffered from. In some cases the hotel restaurant manager is found to have been negligent in their duties when this happens.
Accident Advice Helpline deals with all kinds of claims but we have looked into those that have involved an accident in a hotel restaurant too. This can not only ruin the meal the person was having, but also potentially their holiday if they are away from home.
Slips, trips and falls
While these are the most common accidents to occur in these situations, they are also usually quite easy to prevent. For example a spillage should be clearly marked as such before being mopped up or cleared away, so people are aware that something has been spilled. In other cases there could be incidents where faulty furniture leads to a fall, for example.
Accident Advice Helpline can look into any claim where compensation may be a possibility and the other party is found to be negligent. Call us today on 0800 689 0500 to set things in motion. We may be able to support you through a no win, no fee* claim in search of compensation so call us now.
