Many families choose to stay at a holiday park of some kind while they are on holiday. This might mean staying in a chalet or apartment, or perhaps a villa if they need more space. On the other hand many holiday parks also have campsites attached, to provide people with the chance to stay somewhere that is convenient and cheap for their needs.
Whatever the accommodation may be, you would have a right to expect the holiday park to be in good condition and to be properly maintained at all times. If this is not the case, and you suffer an injury because of it, you could have a right to seek compensation. Holiday park injury compensation can be paid if there is evidence that the park’s owners were negligent in providing a safe place to enjoy your holiday.
How could injuries happen?
Every holiday park will have areas where people are able to sit and relax and enjoy a meal, or perhaps use some of the entertainment facilities provided. There could be a swimming pool, crazy golf courses and maybe even a children’s playground area the kids can enjoy. In every case these areas should be checked and assessed for any potential risks that might present a danger to those using the areas.
Health and safety is an important element that should be considered by everyone who runs a park like this. If someone is injured on-site and the owner is found to have been neglectful of health and safety, a strong argument could be put forward for holiday park injury compensation.
Do you know what to do?
Obviously if you have been injured you should bring that injury to the attention of the people running the park. It should be recorded in the accident book so there is evidence of what happened. Getting photos of your injuries is a good idea, as is getting witness statements and also treatment from your GP or one locally, if you are far away from home.
