Compensation claims for injuries sustained in a hostel

When it comes to finding cheap accommodation while on holiday there aren’t many better options available that can provide the same level of comfort as a hostel. In general, hostels are used by people who are exploring the beaten track such as travellers, as they offer food, shelter and washing facilities without having to pay a huge fee for a hotel. They are generally safe and reliable places, but sometimes this isn’t always the case and you could end up falling victim to negligence and as such you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. If you believe that this situation occurs to you then making a claim could be the best way of getting you back on your feet.

What instances might I be able to make a claim?

There are a number of instances where you could be at risk of sustaining an injury while staying at a hostel, with some common examples of where this could occur including:

·         Claims if you have sustained burns or scarring while using washing facilities

·         Claims if you have suffered from food poisoning  

·         Claims if you have tripped on a wet floor

·         Claims if you are injured using an electrical appliance

·         Claims against a fellow guest.

Who could be at fault in this situation?

If you believe that you have suffered as a result of negligence while staying in a hostel and as a result you have been left with injuries, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. There are a number of people who could be at fault in a situation like this, whether it is a fellow guest or the hostel manager. If you believe their actions have placed your health at risk then you shouldn’t have to suffer the consequences in silence – so for this reason a successful claim could be a great way of recouping any losses you have incurred.
