When staying in any type of hotel or hostel, you’ll have a right to expect to be protected from risks that might result in you being injured an accident that was not your fault. This will be the case regardless of whether you’re staying in a family-run hostelry in small town or village, or a large hotel that’s part of a major chain in a large city. If you are hurt as a result of the negligent actions of a guest house owner, you might be able to take personal injury action after seeking out help with a compensation claim in South Hams.
Securing the right help with a compensation claim in South Hams
Maybe you were injured as a result of a fault on a lift you were using in a larger hotel. If a mechanical problem caused the lift to jolt to a halt and you were to fall over and injure yourself as a consequence, you might well find yourself in a position where you could take action against the hotel.
Perhaps you went to use an electrical item in your room, only to receive a nasty electrical shock that resulted in you sustaining burn injuries. You might have gone to put the kettle on, adjust some lighting, or avail yourself of some refreshments from the minibar, only to be thrown back by an electrical charge. As all hotels and hostels have a responsibility to make sure that all of their electrical equipment is safe, you could be able to claim compensation under these circumstances.
You might even have been given a dose of food poisoning from a meal you ordered from room service. If you could prove that your condition was the result of consuming a dodgy meal from your hotel’s kitchen, you may have grounds on which to seek recompense for your suffering.
