When you book a luxury three-night break at a five-star hotel, the last thing you expect is for anything to go wrong. If you have been injured in an accident in a hotel, your holiday or short break has probably been ruined, and you’ll be out of pocket too.
We can help you claim personal injury compensation no matter how you have been injured, and with 15 years’ experience handling personal injury claims, you know you can trust Accident Advice Helpline’s expert team.
What’s gone wrong?
An accident in a hotel could happen anywhere, at any time, but what has happened to you? Here are a few accidents which are commonly reported:
- Slip, trip or fall – you could fall downstairs, trip over luggage in a hallway or slip on the wet floor of the lobby
- Food poisoning after dining in the hotel restaurant or bar
- Injured after being trapped in a broken lift
- Electrocuted by faulty electrical sockets in your room
- Skin conditions or illness caused by unhygienic conditions in the hotel
- Injured by building works taking place at the hotel – such as objects falling from height
- Injuries caused in the hotel spa/beauty salon or whilst swimming in the pool
Being injured on holiday can put a serious dampener on your holiday spirit – it might even be that you have suffered injuries after an accident in a hotel whilst away on business. You should express your concerns and report your accident to the hotel manager, but you might also want to find out if you can claim compensation for your injuries.
If you’ve been injured and somebody else is to blame, why shouldn’t you be compensated? Our 100% no win, no fee service ensures you don’t have to payout any more money after your ruined hotel break – we won’t charge you a penny unless your claim is successful.
