    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Were you injured while staying in a hotel?


    Holidays are supposed to be a relaxing occasion where you kick back and unwind with friends or family. But accidents do happen, and if you have become ill or injured while staying in a hotel, you may be eligible to claim for compensation.

    Accidents happen

    From broken down elevators to loose carpets causing slips and trips, there are any number of things that could go wrong during your hotel stay. If you think that the hotel has been negligent and is liable for your injury or illness, then it could be worth seeking the advice of a personal injury compensation law firm.

    Hotels are required by law to have public liability insurance, which will pay out in the event of a claim for compensation against them by a member of the public.

    Identify the cause of your accident

    It is important to identify why your accident or illness occurred – was it due to a personal mistake or is the hotel actually liable? If you have ignored wet floor signs and slipped, then this normally means you won’t be eligible to claim.

    However, if you are injured due to a faulty hand rail in your bathroom or trip on loose flooring in your room, or even if you become ill after eating in the hotel restaurant, you may be able to claim for compensation.

    With a personal injury claim, you will normally need to provide evidence of medical treatment, so even if your injury is minor, it is important to seek treatment from your GP or local hospital as soon as you can.
