    Compensation for hotel accidents and injuries


    Hotels welcome guests every single day, for overnight stays or longer stays depending on where the hotel is and the type of clientèle it attracts. It is uncommon for anyone staying at a hotel to suffer hotel accidents and injuries, but it can of course happen in isolated circumstances. Thankfully the strict health and safety laws we have in place in the UK prevent many would-be hazards from being present in the first place. Of course laws are different in other countries and accidents may also take place abroad if you are staying somewhere in another country instead.

    In theory there are a variety of hotel accidents and injuries that could potentially occur in this type of building. Slips and trips are among the most common, with people falling and hurting themselves after coming into contact with a hazard of some kind. Furniture may break or be unfit for purpose and cause someone to fall as a consequence.

    Are injuries fairly minor for the most part?

    Thankfully yes, although there is a slim potential for more serious injuries to occur. For example if your hotel has balconies these should be perfectly safe to use with a high rail to prevent accidental falls. You would not expect the balcony to collapse while you were on it. It is reasonable to expect all facilities to be safe to use too, and for floor coverings and other items to be in good condition and not to have any tripping hazards.

    Even minor injuries may take a while to recover from. In some cases there could potentially be aggravated injuries that cause pain and discomfort, and perhaps a limited range of movement, long after the initial accident took place. While such instances are rare they can potentially lead to a higher compensation payout if an appropriate claim is made.
