Hotel refuses to accept responsibility after basin falls on guest

A furious woman posted on Facebook after a basin in a hotel bathroom fell on the feet of a friend. 

 

Poster "Neung Nstar" said that the guest was visiting the hotel in Ratanathibet, Nonthaburi for ten days until next Tuesday because they were setting up a booth in Bangkok. 

 

The basin collapsed through no fault of her friend and injured her feet. A picture of the victim and blood on the floor was published by Sanook. 

 

Medical bills ran up to 6,300 baht. Nine stitches were needed. 

 

But the poster said that the hotel refused to take responsibility saying it was not caused by their staff. 

 

And to make matters worse the hotel demanded that the guest pay for the damage.

 

The poster made several facetious remarks about dancing on the basin and also asked:

 

"So are you saying that if your lift collapsed - and there was no staff member in it at the time - and I died you would take no responsibility for my death?". 

 

Sanook made no apparent effort to contact the hotel, just reporting the Facebook post. It was stated in the post that the guest had paid 600 baht for each of ten night's stay.

Happened to me too once in a Thai hotel, although luckily missed my foot.
All the basins were fitted wall mounted without a supporting pedestal, making that kind of accident more likely.

It's easy to picture what happened -- someone leaning on a poorly installed basin sink, and it gave way.

 

That seems expensive for 9 stitches in any country, though, assuming that applying the stitches was the primary procedure. I'm also assuming the victim was Thai, so why wasn't their treatment covered under the national health plan system?

Sinks don't just drop off the wall without some help.

This becomes a case of "she said/they said".

Best to "eat it" and move on (both parties).
