Holiday Accident Claims *

IMMEDIATE CALLBACK:



Were You Injured During a Holiday?

While people go on holiday to relax it is an unfortunate fact of life that accidents can happen anytime and anywhere, including while you are on holiday.

Some of the more common types of accidents that happen on holiday are slips on wet floors in hotels, accidents during physically intensive tourist activities, food poisoning in restaurants and
transport accidents. If you have suffered injuries in any of these circumstances, or in any other way, while on holiday call us today to discuss the claims process with one of our lawyers.

Taking a holiday away from home can be great for your health. Yet, if you are injured during your holiday, you could lose time from work and incur other expenses. Although no one really thinks about the possibility of getting hurt on holiday, it happens. If it happens to you, you may be entitled to receive financial compensation from the tour operator.

The most common holiday accidents that make people eligible for compensation include:

  • Involvement of a road traffic accident (as a driver or a passenger);
  • Food poisoning;
  • Getting sick from drinking contaminated water;
  • An accident while skiing or snowboarding;
  • Getting hurt while swimming;
  • Getting hurt at a spa;
  • Suffering an injury while hiking or biking; or
  • An injury caused by unaddressed hazards in a hotel or other accommodations.

There are several expenses that can result from an accident that happens during your holiday, including:

  • Expensive medical treatments;
  • Transportation to get you home;
  • Transportation for your family to return home;
  • Reimbursement for your lodging expenses;

You may be entitled to file a personal injury claim against the tour operator who booked your holiday. It is important that you get a copy of all reports related to your accident, pictures of the hazard that caused your injury, copies of your medical bills, copies of your medical records and any other relevant information. You need to make sure you have all of this information before you attempt to file a personal injury claim.
