    Compensation for Brits injured on holiday


    Most of us manage to get away at some point during the year, whether it is for the odd weekend away or a longer holiday. For the most part these holidays might be taken abroad, although there are cases where people stay in the UK to explore some of the most desirable areas. These range from the Cotswolds to the Scottish Highlands and the Lake District to name a few.

    While most of us have a great time and return home with nothing but good memories, there may be isolated cases where something goes wrong. In these cases there could be the potential for Brits injured on holiday to consider whether they might have cause to think about a compensation claim. For this to occur the Brits involved would need evidence of negligence that points to another person being responsible for what happened.

    How might Brits injured on holiday receive their injuries?

    As we all know, there are countless situations in which we may potentially receive injuries. For the most part few of us run into any problems at all while on holiday, let alone any that might potentially cause injury.

    However, wet floors in hotels, uneven stairs or loose carpets could all cause problems. In other cases someone might be injured on an excursion if the proper safety equipment wasn’t provided wherever needed.

    Accident Advice Helpline has certainly spoken with people who have received injuries in cases like these before. They may occur in all manner of ways but on some occasions the injury has ruined the holiday. As such it can be upsetting and disappointing to be affected by an incident in this way.

    Finding out whether you might claim

    Obviously you will want to work out whether you have the right to make a compensation claim for your injuries. The amount people receive in these situations can depend on the severity of the injury.

    For example someone might have their holiday ruined but recover from the injury once they get home. In another more extreme case there is the chance that someone might be severely injured and could end up having to stop work because of it. Clearly there is a big difference between the two.

    If you have been injured – however the injury occurred – you may want to call the team at Accident Advice Helpline today. Our number is always free to call on 0800 689 0500.
