When we’re on holiday, we like to forget our troubles for a week or so, kick off our shoes and relax without having to think about what waits for us back home. However, thousands of vacationers every year suffer serious injuries on holiday. If you’ve suffered an injury on holiday that was not your fault, you might have grounds to make a claim. This is especially true if you booked your holiday through a travel agency as you’ll be able to bring the claim against them, as opposed to the hotel owner. Accident Advice Helpline are a specialist law firm who have been fighting for the ‘little guy’ in personal injury cases since the turn of the century and their skilled team will be able to help you find a silver lining for your holiday mishap.
Whilst Accident Advice Helpline are able to work with any case where a claimant was injured on holiday, there are a few common types of accident that generally tend to befall British holiday makers, all of which we have experience dealing in.
- Falling over a mislabelled path or slipping on a wet floor that wasn’t properly signposted.
- Road traffic accidents in a rental car or as a pedestrian.
- Accidents caused by faulty or badly maintained equipment.
- Food poisoning.
- Injuries during an excursion arranged by the hotel or travel agency.
