Suffered an accident or illness on holiday?
If your holiday abroad was a package holiday, booked through a travel agent, it is possible to bring a claim for compensation for injuries or illnesses and loss that you may have suffered whilst on that holiday. This is because the tour operator, airline and hotel staff are all under a duty to provide a safe environment for holiday makers.
If you are injured or ill as a result of their breach of duty then it is only right that you should be able to claim compensation – not only for any injury or illness suffered, but for other associated losses, such as loss of enjoyment of your holiday, loss of income for time off work or the cost of medical treatment.
Package Tour Regulations
There are Package Tour Regulations in force which allow victims of accidents or illness abroad to bring a claim against the travel company in certain circumstances and the claim can potentially be made in the UK.
If your claim is not covered by the regulations then consideration may have to be given to bringing a claim within the country where your accident occurred.
Our highly trained solicitors have many years experience in dealing with claims for accident or illness suffered abroad and can help you to secure the maximum amount of compensation.
We also have a dedicated and comprehensive Personal Injury Claims website, which details injury and accident types and how much you may be entitled to.
