Hotel accidents abroad

Hotel accidents abroad

Hotels have a duty of care to safeguard guests against accidents, injuries and illnesses. You may be able to claim in the following circumstances:

  • Slips, trips and falls – If you slipped on a wet floor when there were no hazard warning signs present, or tripped on defective steps or paths, worn carpet or unattended cleaning apparatus.
  • Swimming pools — From slips on wet or defective surfaces to potential drowning if the pool was unattended.
  • Old or substandard furniture and appliances — Resulting in a range of minor or potentially severe injuries.
  • Food poisoning or bacterial infections as a result of poorly handled and prepared foods or poorly maintained air conditioning systems.
  • Glass doors – Unmarked doors, or those without appropriate safety stickers, pose a risk to guests of walking into them causing injuries.
  • Bed bugs – Bites can cause painful swelling and itching that may need medical attention.

No matter what the circumstances of your accident or injury our solicitors can advise on your eligibility to pursue a claim.

We’re always committed to getting the optimum outcome for you.

We were put in touch with Hudgell Solicitors through the Advocate to represent us on a pro-bono basis. They assigned Iftikhar Manzoor and he has been fantastic- very down to earth and easy to talk to. Any queries are answered quickly, and there seems to be a real understanding of concerns raised regarding the inquest of a close family member. We are so very grateful of the support they have given us so far, and extremely confident in their ability to achieve the result we hope for.

Who can I make a claim against?

Depending on the circumstances of the accident, you may be able to make a claim against:

  • The hotel management and their insurer for health, safety or hygiene failings.
  • The tour operator you booked a package holiday with, for failing in their duty of care to provide safe and secure accommodation for you and your family.

Our travel litigation solicitors will be able to advise you further as to who you’re able to make a claim against.

How much compensation can I expect to receive?

The amount of compensation you’re entitled will depend on several different factors, including:

  • The severity of your physical injuries — corroborated by an independent medical expert.
  • The psychological trauma you’ve suffered.
  • Your loss of earnings through taking time off work.
  • Your ongoing care and medical support requirements.
  • Mobility aids and home improvements you now require as a result of your injuries.
  • Other financial losses you’ve incurred in the wake of the accident, including overseas medical expenses and travel costs.
  • The loss of enjoyment you’ve experienced as a result of your holiday being cut short or affected.

Our solicitors are experts in achieving maximum compensation for hotel accident claims abroad, both inside and outside the EU. To find out the value of your claim, contact our team now for a free no obligation consultation.

How long do I have to make a claim?

The amount of time you have to claim will depend on which country the hotel accident took place.

If you were holidaying or working in the UK, you normally have three years from the date of the accident to bring a compensation claim. However, some countries have much shorter time periods, some as short as 6-12 months from the date of the accident.

We’d always recommend seeking legal advice at your earliest opportunity following an accident in a hotel abroad.
