If you have had an accident on holiday that was not your fault, you can claim compensation with the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer. The tour operators that look after the arrangements of trip have a duty to ensure your accommodation is safe and hygienic. If you have suffered distress, injury, damage or infection, you can make a holiday accident compensation claim against the tour operator. If the holiday is not a package holiday, you can still make claim for compensation for the loss you have suffered.

The claims against the tour operators can be made in case the accident has happened by falling off the cruise liner or the hotel because of defective premises. One can also claim holiday accident compensation claim from the tour operator if the accident is caused at the time of travelling from the coach arranged by them.

Taking the details of the witness that were present at the accident scene can also help in backing the case up. The photographs or videos of the scene also prove to be useful for the investigation procedure. If the accident has happened in the hotel, do not forget to lodge a complaint in the accident book of the hotel. You should retain all the bills and receipts of the medical treatment taken for the injury. The compensation will also cover the pain and suffering occurred due to accident.

There are a lot of people who file the claim for such accidents but many of them are unsuccessful in getting the compensation because of the incomplete or weak case. So it is advisable for you to seek legal help for getting appropriate compensation for the pain suffered by you. These professional attorneys let you have the complete compensation for all the damages and loss at the holiday.

Mrs J tripped on a pothole whilst crossing a service road running parallel to a main road, fracturing her shoulder, wrist and ankle. The Council initially denied full liability for her accident alleging Mrs J was partly to blame for not avoiding the pothole. Cooks arranged a Conference with a barrister and on his advice rejected this. After intense negotiations Mrs J was awarded £17,000.00 she said:
"I had help from the start regarding my claim and found the advice very reassuring. I have never had to make a claim before so was apprehensive but you did a lot to alleviate my worries. Thanks again for all your help and support."
