Staying in a guest house is often a more affordable alternative to a hotel – and sometimes in more rural areas, it’s the only option. Guest houses are generally small, friendly, family-run establishments, so you’re likely to benefit from a more personal service than if you stay in a large, impersonal chain hotel. But what can you do if you’ve been injured whilst staying in a guest house?
You may not realise it but you could actually be entitled to claim personal injury compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings if you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault. For guest house injury compensation advice, you can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline, provided it has been three years or less since your accident.
