Holiday Accident Compensation

With an estimated 60 million people in the United Kingdom taking trips abroad every year, it is unsurprising that some of these holiday makers are involved in various accidents. Holiday tour operators, hotel staff and all employees of any company used whilst a person is travelling abroad have a duty of care to ensure that each person is provided with a safe service. If this standard of care is not upheld, consequently causing an accident, a person may be eligible to claim for compensation. The most common types of holiday accidents include:

Making a claim for compensation as a result of an injury sustained in a foreign country can often prove difficult. This is because the compensation claims are usually subject to the laws of the particular country where the incident occurred, potentially affecting a person’s right to compensation and the value of the claim. However, there are certain bodies and regulations in place to help victims claim compensation for their accidents abroad. These include the 1992 Package Travel, Package Holiday and Package Tour Regulations which aid those who have suffered an injury whilst on a foreign package holiday to claim compensation for their accident in the UK. The ‘4th EU Motor Directive 2003’ and the ‘Motor Insurers Bureau’ take care of any road accidents abroad, making it easier to identify foreign cars involved in a particular accident and subsequently for the injured party to claim compensation.

Conversely, if a holiday is booked through a travel agent in the UK as part of a package holiday rather than booked independently, claiming compensation for an accident is much easier. The claim can be made against the travel company in the UK, rather than having to bring a claim against a particular individual, for example a hotel owner in a foreign country. However, regardless of the differences between making a claim against a UK company or a foreign company/individual, the same procedures should be followed to ensure that the claim has the highest chance of success. Photographic evidence, witness statements and a personal account of the accident should be noted so as to provide as much information as possible to the solicitor or court when making the claim.

Our professional service has helped many people across the UK claim compensation for personal accidents. We think you should be able to claim compensation if you were injured during an accident and were not to blame. After all that’s only fair, isn’t it?

If your claim is successful, you’ll get 100% of your compensation and we will claim our costs from the insurance company of the person or organisation who is responsible for the accident.
