Adults injured on holiday could sustain their injuries in all kinds of ways. This doesn’t mean injuries are common – far from it in fact. However if someone is unlucky enough to suffer some kind of injury it could ruin the good time they’re having.
There are all kinds of examples we could provide here that would highlight what might potentially go wrong. For example if you decide to take part in water sports you should be provided with the proper safety equipment to keep you safe.
In some cases you will also need some degree of training and safety advice before you take part in the sport, such as white water rafting for example. In other situations you might simply be injured while tripping or slipping on hotel premises or somewhere similar.
Who might be at fault for causing accidents suffered by adults injured on holiday?
Determining what happens and how is the best way to consider the situation here. When you first suffer an injury you may not be worrying about what happened. The severity of the injury will determine what you do first.
However after you have sought medical attention and you are recovering in some way, it may be on your mind to consider whether you have a chance to make a claim to seek compensation.
After all if you have been injured and someone else was responsible for those injuries, it may well have ruined your holiday. You may even suffer from those injuries long after you get home.
Knowing what to do and when
If you suffer an injury in another country it can make things worse, knowing you are in a foreign country and being unsure of what to do.
However even if you are abroad you may potentially have a claim against the tour operator who sold you the holiday in the first place. They have a duty of care to ensure all their holidaymakers can have a safe and enjoyable holiday.
This is why it is important to contact Accident Advice Helpline. Our team of highly-skilled experts can assess what happened and determine if there is evidence to support a no win, no fee* compensation claim.
All you need to do is call: 0800 689 0500 so you can see whether it is easy enough to make such a claim if you have been injured on holiday.
