It is unfortunate enough for an individual of any age to be injured on holiday. For families injured on holiday it can completely ruin the break, not to mention leave open the possibility they will have to receive medical treatment or even be admitted to hospital.
Regardless of whether this happens abroad in a strange location or whether it happens in the UK, it completely changes the way you will remember that break.
Families injured on holiday are most likely to receive their injuries as the result of an accident. For example you may rent a hire car to explore the area and someone else might crash into you.
You may all take part in a water sport activity only to find the equipment you were all given to help keep you safe is not fit for purpose. This could highlight a case of negligence that should be fought on behalf of the injured family members.
Examples of injuries that might be sustained
There is a wide variety of things that could end up being a problem. For example if a swimming pool is in poor condition more than one family member could cut their feet when using it.
You may all book onto an excursion by coach that takes you to one or more destinations, only for the coach to be involved in an accident that injures the family members.
Needless to say, when more than one family member is hurt it can be a tough time for those involved. Stressful and upsetting doesn’t even begin to describe it. In some cases where injuries are serious, the thought of the holiday being ruined is far from the minds of those who are trying to recover from their injuries.
Seeking no-obligation advice
Finding out more about what happened and who might be to blame is a very good idea indeed. While you may know you were not to blame you still have to prove negligence on the part of another person or company in order to launch a claim.
