    Staying safe in a hotel


    When you are on holiday, the last thing you expect is that you will be involved in an accident. After all, your vacation is a time to relax, unwind and enjoy time away from the daily grind. It should never end in a visit to the emergency unit.

    However, if you are to avoid sustaining an injury, it is important to adopt a sensible approach while you are holiday. That way, you can help to prevent your dream holiday turning into a nightmare.

    Staying safe in a hotel

    Whether you are staying in a budget or a luxury hotel, you are entitled to expect certain standards of safety. In fact the owners of any type of public building are obliged to take steps to protect their staff and guests from harm.

    It is also a good idea to remember a few simple hints about staying safe in a hotel, so that you can minimise any risk to you or your family.

    • Watch for unexpected obstacles in the hotel reception
      Guests may have left shopping bags, or other pieces of luggage in the middle of the floor. This could cause an unexpected accident if you were to trip over them and fall.
    • In your bathroom, check for a non-slip mat before you get into the shower
      When bathroom tiles get wet, they can become very slippery and dangerous. If you notice that your mat is missing, then contact reception as soon as possible.
    • Check that all child locks are fully functioning
      If you are travelling with your family, then it is important to ensure that the window locks are secure and any other ‘child-proof’ standards are met. If you are in any doubt, contact reception and request assistance.

    No-fault accident

    Sometimes we just cannot avoid being involved in an accident, if someone else is to blame. Even if we take every reasonable precaution, we could end up sustaining an injury though no fault of our own.

    Under these circumstances, the innocent victim may be entitled to claim compensation.
