Whether your idea of holiday heaven is two weeks in Greece or a Caribbean cruise, being injured after slipping on holiday is definitely not something most of us plan to experience on our summer break.
Slipping on holiday could lead to serious injuries that may require medical treatment and could ruin your hard-earned fun in the sun. Why not find out if you could make a claim for personal injury compensation by calling Accident Advice Helpline today for confidential, no-obligation advice from our expert personal injury advisors?
Could it have been avoided?
Provided you’ve booked a package holiday, your tour operator could be held liable for your accident abroad, so ask yourself this – could it have been avoided? If you believe that negligence has led to your slip, trip or fall, you could have a viable personal injury claim. Here are a few examples of accidents caused by negligence:
- Slipping on a wet floor, perhaps in the hotel lobby or in your room
- Slip in the hotel dining room, on food or drink spillage
- Slipping on spillages or water on the floor in the hotel’s pool bar
- Being injured after a slip whilst on an organised excursion – this could be in a public place such as in a museum or shopping centre
Your tour operator is responsible for your safety both during your flight and transfers and whilst you’re at your accommodation – they’re also responsible for your safety on any organised trips or excursions.
So whether you have broken your wrist after a slip in a shopping centre (on an excursion) or have suffered a back injury after slipping and falling on a wet floor at your hotel, you could be eligible to claim personal injury compensation.
