    How to make an injury claim while on holiday in Australia


    How to make an injury claim while on holiday in Australia

    Going on holiday is great, but it does come with risks. If you’re travelling abroad this summer or you’re preparing to head off on a gap year to Australia after university exams, it’s advisable to be wary of travel accidents and to be aware of how to react in an emergency situation abroad.

    Potential accidents in Australia

    Australia is a very popular destination for travellers of all ages from the UK and it’s no wonder; with year-round sunshine, stunning sights, amazing beaches and abundant wildlife, Australia provides the perfect location for a cultural break, a family holiday, a backpacking adventure or a romantic trip overseas. Potential hazards, which may contribute to holiday accidents in Australia include:

    • road traffic accidents
    • slips, trips and falls
    • falls from height
    • injuries caused by animals
    • food poisoning

    Injuries sustained in accidents overseas can range from minor bruising and cuts to whiplash, fractures and spinal and head injuries.

    Can I make an injury claim while on holiday abroad?

    If you suffer injuries abroad or you are involved in an accident on holiday, you may be able to claim compensation. If you booked your trip with a tour operator or travel firm and your injuries could have been prevented by the enforcement of health and safety measures or you have proof that the company or other firms that acted on their behalf, displayed negligence, you may have a case for travel accident compensation.

    At the time of the holiday incident, write down all the relevant information about the accident, take photographs if your injuries and arrange to see a doctor. If other people were at the scene at the time, ask them to provide their contact details so that they can give a statement documenting what they saw.
