Camping is a fantastic way to get back to nature and introduce the family to life in the great outdoors. Sleeping under the stars (or in a luxury tent or tipi), cooking on a camping stove and toasting marshmallows around the camp fire are all part and parcel of a great camping experience, and more families than ever before are choosing camping for their holidays in the UK or abroad.
Camping injuries could happen when you least expect them, and if you or your children have been injured whilst camping, it could be that somebody else is at fault. If you’re staying on a camp site and the facilities are not up to scratch, the camp site owner or your tour operator/holiday company could be held liable. Just get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline and we’ll let you know whether you could make a claim for personal injury compensation.
Serious camping injuries
There’s nothing worse than being seriously injured on holiday, particularly if you’re abroad, and camping injuries could ruin your hard-earned holiday. Have you sustained any of the following injuries during your camping trip?
- Burns (for example from a camping stove or a faulty shower)
- Cuts and bruises from faulty tent equipment
- Food poisoning after eating food provided on-site
- Children injured in the camp site playground
- Electrocution after using the camp site’s power supply
Whilst some of these injuries may seem minor, there is the potential for serious injury to occur when camping and if you or a member of your family has been seriously hurt, we could help you to claim the compensation you deserve for your ruined holiday, pain and suffering.
