    Compensation for guest house injuries


    We may use guest houses many times in our lives, perhaps for a holiday away or even when travelling for work. We like our stays in these guest houses to be as comfortable as possible to maximize the enjoyment of our stay. On occasion our stay may not be all we had desired due to low standards of the accommodation that we weren’t expecting, but this is not the only thing that can disrupt and possibly ruin our stay. Sometimes due to an unkempt building or badly-managed operation of the business, guest house injuries may occur in this environment.

    Are accidents likely to happen?

    Most of the time guest house injuries are avoided by managing the maintenance of the house, so any potential hazards are spotted in time and attended to. This is not always the case however. If you are an elderly person or you take young children on a break in a guest house, these guests will be most at risk of an accident due to being less alert or able to deal with the potential hazards around them.

    Potential hazards could be an abandoned box that was in the process of being moved around the premises, easily being a potential trip hazard. Perhaps a member of staff is vacuuming and you don’t spot the electrical cord in time, causing you to suffer a nasty fall. We all just want to have an enjoyable stay when we’re staying away from our home comforts, but sometimes the unexpected can happen.

    What can you do if this happens to you?

    If you find you have been a victim of any guest house injuries you may be able to seek compensation for the disruption that has been caused to your trip. You will also be able to claim for the injuries you have suffered which may cause a loss of income, as well as related stress. We can offer you no-obligation advice on this matter by calling us on 0800 689 0500.

    If you want to make a claim it is unlikely that you will have to go to court in order to see if you will be compensated for the suffering you have been caused. If you want to see how much you could possibly be entitled to, simply use the 30-second claim calculator on our website.
