Hotel Injury Compensation Claims | Irwin Mitchell

When you stay in a hotel abroad, you have the right to expect that your health and safety will be protected. However, when a hotel owner or their staff neglects this duty of care, injury, or even death can result.

If you have suffered an injury while staying at a hotel, we could help you to claim the full and fair compensation that you are entitled to. Our specialist lawyers have more than 20 years of experience in successfully handling hotel injury claims, fighting cases both in the UK and all over the world. We will help you recover your financial losses and expenses, while arranging access to any specialist treatment and rehabilitation that you need.

Our Experience in Hotel Injury Compensation Claims

We have helped thousands of clients claim compensation following a hotel accident abroad, ranging from the most serious and life-changing head and spinal injuries, through to less severe injuries.

Since 1997 our international personal injury team have been helping hundreds of clients to claim millions of pounds in compensation for injuries sustained in hotel accidents. We have the largest dedicated team of this kind in the UK and are recognised as the leading firm for holiday claims by the independent legal guides, Chambers & Partners and the Legal 500:

“This team is rated as the best international PI claimant group in the country, having built an ‘established and high-quality practice’ that ‘commands respect throughout the industry’.”

How We Handle Hotel Injury Claims

It’s important to establish where a claim can be made. The Package Travel Regulations may allow you to bring a claim in the UK rather than abroad. This will often be the best option as the amount of compensation you can claim may be higher in the UK than in the country the hotel accident happened.

If your claim has to be made in the country where you were injured, our large team of expert lawyers have many years of experience of overseas law and legal systems. Some of our lawyers are qualified to practice in a number of foreign countries and are fluent in many languages.

We will put together a claim that takes into account:

  • The severity of your physical and psychological injuries
  • Financial losses already incurred, as well as future medical expenses and loss of earnings
  • Counselling, rehabilitation and future care needs
  • Necessary modifications to your home

We will put you first throughout your claim. Our lawyers will keep you updated regularly of the progress of your case, and will minimise the stress. We will also ensure you get access to specialist treatment, care and rehabilitation.
