    Compensation for falling in a hotel


    Most stays in hotels are pleasant and do not involve any problems at all. The hotel staff will typically do everything they can to ensure you have a great time and you will want to go back and stay there again. The better their business is, the more successful it will be.

    It is no wonder then that the vast majority of hoteliers follow health and safety laws and procedures to the letter. They know they have an obligation to ensure their premises are safe from potential risk and from injuries incurred from falling in a hotel or suffering any other kind of accident.

    Whenever someone suffers an accident in a hotel they will think about whether negligence might have been the root cause of that accident. Falling in a hotel may well be embarrassing, but it is also potentially dangerous in terms of the injuries you might suffer as a result.

    How could someone end up falling in a hotel?

    There are a variety of situations where this might potentially happen. For instance you may fall down a set of stairs. This could occur if you weren’t looking properly but it might also potentially happen if the stair carpet was in poor condition. In this situation the hotel owners would have been negligent in not maintaining or replacing that carpet when it was clearly needed.

    In another example, someone might fall if they sat on a chair that was not fit for purpose. Furniture tends to be used quite heavily in hotels, and must therefore be checked on a regular basis. If you sit on a chair that collapses and you are injured as a result, this could present a good chance at succeeding with a compensation claim.
