We all have different ideas of what makes a good holiday. For some it will involve a beach, hot weather and a good book to read. For others it will involve being in the middle of nowhere with walking gear and a mountain to climb.
Whatever you desire for a good holiday, you’d want it to pass without incident in terms of whether you get through it without being injured in any way.
Injuries can be potentially serious or very minor, depending on how you sustain them, how serious they are and whether or not they result in ongoing problems from that moment onwards. In any case though, you wouldn’t want to have an accident while you were on holiday, because it could ruin the plans you have made to relax and enjoy yourself.
Examples of accidents that might occur
All kinds of things could potentially happen while you are on holiday, even though the odds of them occurring would be slim. For example you could be involved in a road accident while walking, cycling or driving that was caused by someone else.
You might be hurt while taking part in a sport of some kind. If there was inadequate instruction on what to do or how to stay safe, this could lead to a higher chance of you being injured.
Regardless of the type of accident that occurs, or how it happens, the most important thing to do is to work out whether another party was negligent. This can be tricky at times so it is usually best to find a reputable and professional injury compensation lawyer who can assist you in this way. They will be able to tell you whether you stand a chance of getting any holiday accident compensation.
What should you do next?
You don’t have to claim immediately after you have an accident, since there is a three-year window to claim within the UK. However the sooner you contact a professional lawyer with experience in this area the sooner you will be able to assess whether or not you have a chance to claim.
