Foreign hotel injury claims

Updated: October 8, 2018

Each year, millions of British people travel to foreign countries on holiday resulting in hundreds of personal injury claims being made. If an individual has an accident abroad in a foreign hotel which is not their fault, they may be entitled to compensation.

A hotel has a duty of care to its guests and should guarantee their safety and security during their visit. Their duty of care should ensure that a visitor does not suffer any unreasonable harm or loss.

However, many accidents in hotels are due to a failure to comply with this duty of care.

Hotel accidents are often caused by mismanagement or neglect such as unmarked spillages or uneven surfaces. In cases such as these, a claim could be made directly against the claimant's travel agency.

If a person contracts an illness such as food poisoning from the hotel, a claim can again be made against the travel agency concerned.

Our network of solicitors do not currently have the capacity to take on holiday-related injury and sickness claims outside the UK. It is recommended that you contact a personal injury specialist solicitor to discuss your options as soon as possible, as some jurisdictions have limitation dates of less than the three year limit that is standard in the UK.
