More of us than ever before are choosing to staycation in the UK rather than going abroad for our summer holiday – and that’s great news for the UK tourist industry. But whether your idea of the perfect holiday is a family activity break or camping in rural Devonshire, what do you do if things go wrong? If you’ve been injured whilst on holiday in the UK, you could be eligible to claim UK holiday injury compensation.
If your children or a member of your family has been injured, you could make a claim on their behalf with Accident Advice Helpline. We’re proud of the excellent service we’ve been providing to our customers for years – we’ve even been endorsed by our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen.
How have you been injured?
So what’s the worst that could happen on your family holiday or romantic break for two? You could be injured in any of the following ways, for a start:
- Injured whilst taking part in activities on holiday such as archery, scuba diving, abseiling or skiing
- Struck down by food poisoning after eating at your accommodation or a local pub/restaurant
- Suffer electric shock from faulty sockets or appliances at your hotel or B&B
- Injured whilst taking part in water sports (due to insufficient instruction or lack of safety equipment)
- Injured in a car crash caused by a dangerous driver
- Scalded or burned by faulty appliances at your accommodation – such as a faulty shower or kettle
- Slip trip or fall accidents leading to broken bones, head injuries or back injuries
If you or your children have been injured on holiday, we know how you must be feeling. Unfortunately we don’t have the power to turn back the clock, but we can help you to get the compensation you deserve for your ruined holiday.
Going back to work
If you’re unable to return to work after your holiday due to your injuries, we can help you claim UK holiday injury compensation which could cover your loss of earnings. What’s more, our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee** basis, giving you one less thing to worry about. You can call Accident Advice Helpline on our 24/7 helpline on 0800 689 0500 for confidential, no-obligation advice and to find out if you have a viable claim, however you have been injured on holiday.
