Accidents in hotels
We all like to be able to get away from it all from time to time and enjoy being waited on hand and foot. Arguably one of the best ways to do this is go on holiday, or even enjoy a mini break in a local hotel. Take in some new scenery and enjoy the food and perhaps spa treatments on offer. However, going away and staying under someone else’s roof is not without its potential complications and risks.
If you have been involved in an accident in a hotel or spa and were injured as a result, then you may have the legal right to make a Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen ‘no win, no fee*’ claim against the owners or the establishment. To find out for certain why not take Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second test today?
Types of accidents
You can make a Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen ‘no win, no fee*’ claim for any type of accident that occurs in a hotel, provided of course that it has caused you some form of personal injury, and was not your fault.
Over the years, Accident Advice Helpline has helped with a wide number of different types of Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen ‘no win, no fee*’ claims including for clients who have fallen over. Such accidents often occur as a result of poor house keeping standards within public places, for example, water not being cleaned up and therefore presenting a risk of slippage. Also, lose floor tiles or uneven floor surfaces can also present a tripping hazard which can cause any number of injuries to occur.
Hotel rooms themselves can be dangerous areas, especially those with en suite bathroom facilities. Take for example a hotel that does not provide anti slip matting in the bathroom or the bath itself. In such a situation it would be easy for someone to fall over and injure themselves, therefore causing a Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen ‘no win, no fee*’ claim to be made.
Hot water taps can also present their own dangers if the water in them is too hot, and patrons have not been warned accordingly.
Why you can make a Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen ‘no win, no fee*’ claim
The simple fact of the matter is that the owners of such establishments have a legal duty of care to ensure that their facilities are suitable and safe for people to use. People should not be at risk of injury anywhere they go – this includes public places or their place of work.
It is this legal requirement that protects you, and enables Accident Advice Helpline and other law firms to assist you in seeking the compensation that you are entitled to. Our team of solicitors can support you in any way that you need to ensure that you get the maximum amount of compensation that you are entitled to.
