Staff, whether directly employed or an agency worker, are entitled to breaks and protection from harm. If an injury has been caused due to a hotel’s lack of care – meaning failings in health and safety as well as working conditions –the hotel owners could be held accountable and liable to pay any compensation.

Whether the hotel is a large brand or a local establishment, we can help you achieve compensation if you have suffered an injury due to an accident that wasn’t your fault. First Personal Injury are well respected within the law profession and our record includes a vast number of successfully won personal injury cases.

If you have a valid basis upon which to make an injury claim, we will provide advice as well as an estimation about the amount of compensation you could be owed.
