Holiday parks are popular with families, couples and young children. They provide all kinds of facilities in one area, not to mention great accommodation for everyone who comes to stay. You might stay in a chalet, a lodge or even a villa depending on how big your party is and what kind of property you would like to try out.
Of course you would expect to have a great time using all the facilities while you are there. The last thing anyone would want on holiday would be to sustain holiday park injuries of any kind.
We all know things can happen and possibly go wrong, but we don’t want anything to happen if at all possible. Good health and safety standards in place at holiday parks should ensure nothing untoward happens while you are there.
What could potentially happen?
Holiday park injuries could be caused in or around the swimming pool if it is not checked regularly for problems or maintained to any real extent. For example the tiles could be cracked and sharp, or the surroundings might be slippery, causing an increased chance of someone being injured.
Injuries might also potentially happen if play equipment provided for the children is unsafe or too old for use. Similarly there could be a problem with the accommodation. The beds might be old and on the verge of collapse, or you could use some of the kitchen equipment and receive a shock off it. These are all examples of course and it is rare anyone would receive holiday park injuries in such a way.
What if something did happen to you or a member of your family?
There is a three-year time window in which you should consider making a claim to seek compensation if you feel you have a good chance of doing so successfully. It is always easier going through this process if you have someone on your side you can count on though – someone with experience in dealing with such cases.
