    "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

    Lawyer in Moffat

    If you have sustained injuries as a result of an accident in a hotel in Moffat, you may be entitled to claim compensation with the  help of a personal injury lawyer in Moffat.

    Whether you were staying at the hotel, visiting its restaurant or just looking around the premises, the owner of the hotel should have protected you from harm during your time there. All hotels have a duty of care which requires them to take reasonable action to protect your health and safety when you visit their premises. If they breach their duty of care, you may be able to make a compensation claim against them.

    Common hotel accident injuries

    Hotel accidents in Moffat can result in serious injuries. Examples of common hotel accident injuries include:

    • Electric shocks from faulty electrical appliances;
    • Burns from exposed heating pipes and faulty hot water taps;
    • Carbon monoxide poisoning from dangerous heating appliances;
    • Injuries sustained in slip, trip and fall accidents; and
    • Food poisoning from unhygienic food storage and preparation.

    After suffering an accident, you must inform the hotel’s management and ensure that they record your accident in their accident book. If possible, you should take photographs of the cause of your injuries – for example, if you suffered from burns, you should take pictures of the exposed heating pipes. If there is a possibility that your accident was captured on CCTV then ensure, if you can, that the hotel will take steps to preserve the footage in their archives.

    Let Accident Advice Helpline help you

    While a compensation claim will not relieve you of your pain and suffering, it may help you to reclaim your financial losses. You should therefore contact an accident lawyer in Moffat to receive advice on your legal options. If you were unable to collect evidence relating to your injuries, because for example you had to visit the hospital or return home, simply contact Accident Advice Helpline and our advisors will be able to advice you about gathering all evidence relating to your accident.
