    Broke toe/s in hotel room... 16th Oct 19 at 11:04 PM
    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!

    No matter what your "story" is or how bad your personal circumstances are it is unethical to make a fraudulent claim against the hotel just to get some money, it really is as simple as that.



    So you wanted to gather some people's opinions on making an unfounded claim for money but now your complaining that people are posting negative things

    What kind of opinions did you think people would have on this subject?

    I did not, however, expect people to not fully read my post and start mouthing off about how I'm apparently blaming the hotel, which is not the case.

    To allow you to make a claim against the hotel and win then they will have to be liable. If your asking if you can make a claim then your asking if there is a way they can be made liable even if it's not their fault.

    Asking if you can get money out of a business when you agree they aren't liable doesn't exactly show you have good intentions.

    I took more than a moment to read your full post.

    You donít like the opinions you asked for, doesnít make them rude. Couple of options:
    You need a control, book in another hotel, different brand, see if you stub your toes there.
    Never stay in Travelodge or if you do wear steel toe caps.
    Life is like a bath, the longer you are in it the more wrinkly you become.

    Again, yes, I completely agree. At no point did I say they were liable and thought it was barbaric if you could claim for such a thing. But please do forgive me for acting on a couple of suggestions to at least enquire about it from family and friends.
