Honeymoons abroad epitomise the height of romance for many young couples. Unfortunately, sometimes the dream of spending your honeymoon in an exotic location is marred, even brought to an abrupt end, by unexpected honeymoon incidents.
Common honeymoon incidents
The most common accidents on holiday by far are slips, trips and falls causing injuries ranging from minor cuts and bruises to broken or fractured limbs and, if falls from height were involved in such honeymoon incidents, even life-changing neck, head, spinal and/or back injuries.
In many cases, honeymooners’ slip, trip and fall injuries can be prevented by wearing suitable footwear for excursions, keeping alcohol consumption to a minimum and generally minding your step.
Other incidents on honeymoon
Other comparatively frequently reported honeymoon incidents include:
- Car accidents
- Diving accidents
- Other water- or land-based sporting accidents
Car crashes can often be prevented by driving and watching other road users carefully.
Diving and other sporting accidents can often be avoided by:
- Obtaining adequate training, in particular for diving, water skiing, surfing, for example
- Ensuring equipment is in good working order
- Using only reputable diving excursion, boating and/or fishing tour or water-skiing operators
Sometimes, however, accidents on honeymoon are caused by others and can subsequently not be prevented by the happy couple.
When honeymoon incidents occur
If this scenario applies to you and you were injured in an accident abroad, be it a motoring or diving accident, a slip, trip or fall or indeed any other kind of accident on honeymoon through no fault of your own, you could be entitled to claim travel accident compensation.
Our team of experienced in-house injury solicitors can assist you in getting the travel injury compensation you are entitled to quickly and efficiently.
We established our law firm, Accident Advice Helpline, in 2000 to ensure members of the public can get the justice and personal injury compensation they deserve after accidents at work, road traffic accidents, trips, slips and falls and other honeymoon and holiday accidents.
No win, no fee*
We operate under conditional fee agreements, better known as no-win, no-fee* claims, making it possible for people to claim for compensation without having to worry about having to pay solicitors’ fees they may incur during the claim process. Any fees and costs will be deducted from the awarded compensation at the end of the claim process, so there is nothing to pay up-front.
