Holiday Accident Claims

Holidays are an occasion to look forward to, a chance for relaxation and rejuvenation and to spend some quality time with our loved ones. However, unexpected misfortunes are a part of life and no matter if you are on a holiday or at home, accidents can occur. If you or a loved one have suffered an injury or illness whilst on holiday through no fault of their own, you may be entitled to compensation. The negligence of another party can lead to accidents and may even prove to be fatal in some rare cases, thereby turning a pleasurable trip into an altogether terrible experience. If you have been the victim of any such accidents during your holidays, you and your family may benefit from filing for holiday accident claims against the tour operators or hotel.

Common causes of injuries whilst on holiday include;

  • Slipping or tripping on slippery / damaged flooring
  • Participating in sporting activities
  • Injuries sustained whilst on day excursions
  • Food poisoning because of poor hygiene standards
  • Whilst travelling on private or public transport

It is the responsibility of the tour operator ensure the safety of their customers, including accommodation and transportation. In order to make holiday accident claims, it is necessary that the grieved party report the illness or accident to the hotel staff or holiday representative at the time it occurs. Pictures of the scene, injuries sustained and details of any witness, along with details of any medical treatments and hospital visits will be helpful when claiming.
