    Claiming compensation for holiday accidents


    Holidays are a time for us to rest and recuperate, and many families are lucky enough to enjoy a trip abroad more than once a year. But if you are involved in an accident or become ill whilst on holiday, it can be a stressful, traumatic time.

    With lack of guidance and support, dealing with foreign medical services can be challenging, but there are laws in place to protect you if you suffer an injury or illness whilst on holiday.

    Common types of holiday accident claims

    Here are some of the most common types of claims for holiday accidents and injuries:

    • General accidents could range from slips, trips or falls to food poisoning or even major airline disasters
    • Accidents at sea – for example whilst on a cruise ship
    • Car or coach accidents abroad
    • Food poisoning
    • Sports injuries such as skiing or watersports injuries

    If you have been affected by any of these types of accidents or incidents, you may be considering claiming for compensation.

    Who you claim against will determine how your claim progresses – for example, if you become ill on a cruise ship you may claim against the tour operator.
