The injuries that could be sustained from an accident in a hotel range from minor bumps and scratches, to serious, life-threatening conditions. The impact of these injures are increased if they are sustained far away from home. You might need to attend a hospital where the staff don’t speak English, and it is unlikely that you will have the support of your extended family and friends.
Injuries that could be sustained from an accident in a hotel
If the hotel reception area is not properly maintained, then you could easily slip, trip or fall onto the floor. Many hotels opt for marbled or tiled flooring, so an accident of this kind could cause broken bones or a head injury.
In your room, there are other potential hazards such as broken widow locks and dangerous electrical appliances. If the hotel does not adhere to Health and Safety Regulations, then you could suffer from lacerations, broken bones or an electric shock. Indeed, if your room is not on the ground floor, then a fall from a window could even be fatal.
If you have been involved in an accident in a hotel, then you might be able to claim compensation for your injuries. In order to be eligible, you should be able to answer, ‘yes’ to the following three questions:
- Did your accident happen within the last three years?
- Was the accident caused by someone else’s negligence?
- Did you need medical attention for your injuries?
