Holiday accidents

Whether it’s a summer break, romantic city trip away, winter ski retreat, or an escape to the country, the last thing you think will happen is to fall victim to an injury or illness whilst on holiday.

Unfortunately, every year holidaymakers risk accident, injury or illness while abroad, and many find that they have not considered the risks before they travel. An accident or injury on holiday can end up costing you a fortune – not to mention ruining your trip.

We can assist you whether your accident was abroad or in the UK. However, accidents suffered abroad can sometimes fall under the jurisdiction of the country in which the accident took place, therefore it is important that you pursue your claim as soon as possible.

Through our commitment Claim Today, Plan for Tomorrow, we will ensure that you have access to the best of a wide network of medical professionals and orthopaedic specialists, physiotherapy, and rehabilitation, in order to fully understand your issues and challenges, and help you get on the road to recovery.

Types of holiday accidents you can claim against

There are a great number of accident types that you can claim as an accident at work. At Claim Today Solicitors, our team of personal injury solicitors can assist with claiming compensation with the following:

  • food poisoning
  • severe illness
  • trips and slips
  • day trip injuries
  • road traffic accidents
  • air or sea accidents
  • water sports injuries
  • ski holiday injuries
  • adventure holiday injuries
  • sports injuries
  • serious injuries

Who can you claim against?

If you suffered an accident in the hotel you are staying in then you can make a claim against the holiday company you booked with if the holiday was booked as part of a package deal from a company based in the UK.

If you have had an accident outside of your hotel grounds you may be able to pursue a claim directly against the person responsible. If you suffer an accident on public transport, seek immediate medical attention, as in some countries this can be a prerequisite of making a claim.

No win no fee

Personal injury compensation claims, clinical negligence claims, and serious injury claims made with Claim Today Solicitors are offered with “no win no fee”. Meaning that if we don’t win your case, you don’t pay a penny.

The main benefits of No Win No Fee are that there is no money to pay up front, and only to be paid as a percentage of your total compensation amount at the end of a winning case. Meaning you need not worry about money in order to make a claim, and to benefit from legal advice as soon as possible.

Do you have a claim?

Should you have been unfortunate enough to suffer a holiday illness or injury and are considering making a claim, it should be done as soon as possible as some countries may have different time restrictions. You will also need to prove that the accident came about through negligence of another party and not through any fault of your own.

If you believe you do have a claim, you should take down the details of the incident and ensure that these are reported to the hotel you are staying at. You should seek immediate medical attention, as in some countries this can be a prerequisite of making a claim.
