Holiday Accident Claims

Holidays are designed for relaxation and fun, so suffering an injury while you’re away can be very upsetting as well as painful and financially costly. If you’ve been injured while on holiday as a result of someone else’s negligence you have a right to claim for compensation.

Holiday accident claims cover personal injury or illness that is caused through no fault of your own.

Types of Holiday Accidents

Your injury or illness may not occur in the hotel, and it’s important to remember that in addition to travel agents and hotel staff, car rental firms, day trip organisers and other holiday-related companies share the same duty of care to you.
Among some of the most common types of holiday accidents are:
•    Food poisoning at the hotel
•    Slips, trips and falls at the hotel
•    Swimming accident
•    Foreign transport accident
•    Car accident injury
•    Illness caused by poor hotel hygiene
•    Water sports injury
•    Injury during a day trip

What To Do Following A Holiday Accident

As difficult as it may be at the time of your holiday accident, it will help your compensation claim if you report the accident, injury or illness to staff or holiday representatives when it happens.

In addition, try to gather as much of the following information as possible:
•    Details of your injury or illness
•    Photos of your injury
•    Photos of the scene of your accident
•    Names and addresses of witnesses to your accident
•    Notes and details of any doctor and hospital visits
•    Receipts for medical and associated costs

Can You Claim For Holiday Accident Compensation?

Whether your accident happened within the UK or abroad, your tour operator and holiday-related companies you booked through all have a duty of care to look after you during your holiday.

Although the claims process for making a holiday claim for an injury that occurred in the UK is more straightforward than a holiday claim following an accident abroad, the Package Travel, Package Holiday and Package Tour Regulations 1992 and the Fourth European Union Motor Insurance Directive 2003 have made it easier to make a claim for an accident or injury abroad on your return to the UK.

If your accident or personal injury happened outside of a package holiday, on a trip you’d arranged yourself or a business vacation, the claims process could be subject to the laws of that country. But our solicitors will explain all you need to know, with your options depending on the individual details of your situation.

Our personal injury experts are here to advise you of your rights to compensation as well as provide free legal advice, so if you’ve been injured following a holiday accident or holiday illness caused through no fault of your own, contact us for help.
