    Compensation for holiday activity injuries

    For some of us, the idea of the perfect holiday is nothing more than lazing on a golden sandy beach, drink in one hand and bestseller in the other. However, if your idea of a dream holiday is a bit more active, there are plenty of activities you can get involved in abroad.

    From water sports and beach volleyball to diving, paragliding and horse riding, staying active abroad helps you keep fit and make the most of your holiday.

    But what if you’re affected by holiday activity injuries abroad? If your child is injured whilst horse riding or you’re hurt in a water sports accident, not only could your holiday be ruined but you could also find yourself facing steep medical bills and requiring treatment in hospital.

    If you’ve booked a package holiday and organised activities through your hotel or resort, they could be held liable for your holiday activity injuries if things go wrong. So what can you do about it? Well, you could get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline and see if you are eligible to claim personal injury compensation.

    Making a claim – next steps

    There’s a three-year time limit to make a claim for personal injury compensation, so it’s important to act fast if you’d like to find out more about what’s involved. You’ll need a personal injury lawyer – ideally one with experience handling personal injury claims – and we have been helping people since 2000, so you know you can rely on us.

    Your lawyer will be able to assess whether you’re eligible to claim and work out your settlement. To do this, they’ll take into account the cost of your holiday, the severity of your injuries and any financial losses you’ve suffered – for example the cost of medical treatment or prescription medication.

    The best part? We can process most personal injury claims in full over the phone, so it’s highly unlikely you’ll need to go to court, something that many people find daunting.

    Fun in the sun

    Don’t let worrying about accidents abroad ruin your holiday. If the worst has already happened to you or a member of your family, pick up the phone and call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500.

    Our personal injury advisers are on hand to offer confidential, no-obligation advice and we work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so you have nothing to lose by getting in touch with us today.
