Holiday accident claim
Holidays are supposed to be relaxing, a chance to unwind and escape the pressures of daily lives. However things don’t always go to plan; if your break was ruined due to illness or injury that was not your fault, our specialist lawyers can help with your holiday accident claim.
Previously people booking package travel were automatically given protection against accidents or injuries whilst on holiday. However, since the introduction of package travel regulations in 1992, it is now possible for people to make claims against tour operators.
Our specialist team understand the complex issues of foreign laws and will use their in depth knowledge to get you the maximum amount of compensation. We know that having an accident abroad can be very traumatic, particularly if you urgently need to come home, which is why we are committed to handling your claim with sensitivity and professionalism.
Successful Holiday Accident Claim
We have made successful claims for compensation in many circumstances, including:
- Air and road traffic accidents abroad
- Accidents or food poisoning in hotels, on board boats and cruise ships
- Slips, trips or falls in hotels
- Accidents whilst working abroad
- Bacterial infections from poor hygiene (such as E. coli)
- Skiing accidents
Where possible you should take photo evidence of the cause of the accident or injury and make a note of the time, date, location and circumstances of the accident. If there are witnesses you should take their names and contact details.
