    How to claim holiday fall injury compensation


    Suffering a fall can be a real shock to the system, especially if it occurs from a height. It can also leave you with some serious injuries, or at least injuries that will be problematic for you for a period of time. Imagine then the frustration of suffering a fall on holiday, when you are supposed to be enjoying yourself. It could ruin the rest of your break, especially if you are hospitalised or you have a situation whereby you have an injury that limits your enjoyment of your break.

    Holiday fall injury compensation has previously been paid out to people who suffered some kind of fall as the result of negligence. For example if you fall in a hotel because there was some kind of hazard present, this would be negligent on the part of those who are responsible for providing the hotel services. Yet there are many other areas where compensation might also be paid out.

    Examples of other falls

    You could also fall if you were on the premises of a holiday cottage or rental property, or in a hotel or a complex providing apartments to stay in. The most important thing is to prove someone was negligent in failing to provide a safe area to enjoy while on holiday.

    If you booked a foreign holiday through a UK tour operator and you were injured as a result of a fall, you might have cause to claim holiday fall injury compensation through the tour operator as well. Since they provide the holiday for you, you have a chance to claim against them, since they should provide a safe place to enjoy a nice break.

    Could you be able to claim anything?

    The answer to this question will depend on your personal situation, what happened and how bad your injuries were. There are many variables here which is why it is so important to make sure you get the answers to the questions you will no doubt have.
