Are you injured?
Injuries can range from simple cuts and lacerations through to more serious trauma with long term effects. Seeking urgent medical assistance for any suspected or obvious injuries should be the first priority.
If you have travel insurance:
- notify the hospital of this on your admission and
- provide details of the insurer and policy conditions.
- contact your insurer.
- check you will be covered under your policy, as medical consultations including physical examinations and x rays or other diagnostic tools may be required to provide a thorough diagnosis of your injuries.
Apart from seeking medical advice, ensure that:
- you notify the hotel representative of the time, place and location of the accident and the person(s) involved. If they are unavailable, try and contact the UK headquarters of the provider and notify them. Failing this, ensure that the hotel management has been informed.
- the incident/accident is recorded in the hotel’s Accident Book. Try and obtain a photocopy of this for your records.
- a copy of any medical records are obtained, including x rays if appropriate.
