Broke toe/s in hotel room...

Hi all.

So I'll be completely honest about this. I stayed in a Travelodge in London last month. I kept stubbing my toes on the bed (as did my daughter and said she also had the same problem last time she stayed in the exact same hotel). On one of the evenings of my stay, I stubbed it so hard that I broke at least one toe, although I think it could possibly three toes (hospitals don't x-ray for broken toes anymore which is understandable).

I thought nothing of it. Accidents happen. The bed was not faulty in any way. But a few people have said I may be able to do some kind of accident claim so thought I'd ask on here what your opinions are.

I didn't report it to the hotel at the time but did go to the hospital the day after I got home.

I very highly doubt there's any claim as they weren't at fault! But as I say, just thought I'd gather some opinions.

Thanks!

  • In what way might Travelodge have been to blame to form the basis of this claim?

    And how much money do you want from them?

    Well obviously they have toe-breaking beds but they do not know because no one tells them while they are staying there.
  • There really needs to be a 'mind your toes' sign at the end of the beds in hotel rooms.
  • Did you not see the bed? Why did you walk into it?

    I’m not sure people are reading the whole post. The OP thinks it was their own fault and that the hotel isn’t in any way responsible.


    ... but they still wonder if they can screw some money out of the situation.:(

    After the first time, did it not occur to you to be slightly more careful?

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    You need to stop listening to people who think that every accident is a claim. If I was shopping and walked into the cash desk, I wouldn't blame the shop, I'd blame myself for being an idiot. There's probably nothing they can do about people stubbing their toes on their beds. Would you have rather slept on a mattress on the floor?

    No, she'd probably trip over it.

    A few times!
