Taking the whole family away on holiday is a great way to relax, have fun in the sun and get some much-needed family time that you often miss out on when you’re busy with work.
Whether you decide to go camping, take the kids to a holiday park, enjoy two weeks at a self-catering apartment in Spain or book an all-inclusive luxury holiday in Mexico, one thing is for sure – you deserve a break. The last thing you need or want on holiday is stress, so if your kids are injured in an accident abroad, you’re probably wondering if there’s anything you can do about it.
Children injured on holiday won’t be able to claim personal injury compensation, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make a claim on their behalf. In fact, we recommend you get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline within three years of their accident, to see whether you have a viable claim.
Whether they have been hurt whilst banana boating or injured in the hotel playground, we can help you claim the compensation you deserve, and our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.
A stressful time
Children injured on holiday may need medical treatment and in some cases may need to spend time in hospital. This can be incredibly stressful both for the kids and their parents, and medical treatment abroad may not be to the standard we expect here in the UK – it may also be expensive.
If you’ve spent a fortune on medical treatment for your child (after all, their health is your main concern) or you’ve had to fly them back to the UK for treatment here, we’ll take this into account when you call us to make a claim.
If they have sustained serious injuries, such as a head injury after falling from a climbing frame at your hotel, we can help you get the compensation they deserve for their pain and suffering.
You wouldn’t want to miss out on the opportunity to make a claim, and with a three-year time limit in place for personal injury claims, you’d be surprised at how many people wait around for too long and miss their chance.
Calling Accident Advice Helpline today on 0800 689 0500 doesn’t commit you to making a claim. In fact, we offer confidential, no-obligation advice and can answer any questions you have, which can help you decide whether you wish to claim or not.
