    Compensation for a fall on holiday

    Suffering a fall on holiday can be very upsetting, especially if it could have been prevented by better health and safety procedures. It can mean that you may have to cut your holiday short to seek treatment or have to spend considerable time in hospital.

    Safety standards in holiday resorts

    Falls can happen at any time but when it happens because of a lack of care or safety it is frustrating because it may have been preventable. On holiday, the companies you book and stay with have a responsibility to ensure that the facilities and grounds they rent out to holidaymakers are safe. This could range from hotel rooms to swimming pool areas, play areas and the whole area of the resort. Resort owners and management should regularly check their grounds and facilities and should have practices in place to minimize hazards.

    Unsafe or slippery flooring is one of the areas they need to look out for as these can be likely to cause a fall on holiday. Tiles and carpets or pavements should be fitted properly and repaired if they come loose. Sharp and jutting out edges need to be addressed as these can cause injuries if people fall on them.

    Claiming compensation for a fall on holiday

    If you are injured on holiday you may be able to claim compensation if it was not your fault. Accident Advice Helpline can help you to claim for an injury that happened while you were on holiday in the UK or if you were abroad and booked with a UK company. If the holiday resort you stay at is unsafe and causes a fall on holiday then they may be responsible for your injuries through their negligence and poor health and safety standards. Becoming injured can create difficulties for you such as being unable to travel home due to your injury and you may need specialised care for a serious injury.

    Claiming compensation may be able to help with some of the financial costs you may have had to pay as a result of the injury and it can help to highlight the things a holiday company is neglecting to care for. Accident Advice Helpline has a great deal of experience in the industry and wants to help you get the compensation you deserve. Call today on 0800 689 0500 to tell us about what happened to you.
