Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi thank you for your enquiry and your patience. When you say you have used a couple of firms before what defence did the hotel present please? Also did this happen when you checked in or some time after use of the room? Did you have any doctor or hospital attend to you? If so have you had to receive any precautionary treatment? when did this happen?
You therefore need to find a personal injury solicitor and yes they have a duty of care to ensure their rooms are safe and secure for customers. The difficulty is with proving the needle was there before you checked in but if this happened straight away then you will have reasonable prospect and your solicitor will be able to ask for evidence of whether previous occupants may have had diabetes and left the needle and a record of when cleaning and what cleaning takes place. I am suprised other firms have not continued with your matter however they may have seen more information and assessed the matter fully and decided you would not have prospect or that the value would not be proportionate. Try clerksroom.com they will have reasonably priced solicitors.
I hope this helps and I would be grateful for your rating at your earliest convenience, all the best
