Everyone looks forward to a great holiday at some point during the year. For some it may mean going abroad; for others it could mean staying in the UK. Whatever the case may be you would not expect to suffer sports injuries on holiday. Even if you are not planning a particularly sporty holiday you might still indulge in one or two sports such as tennis, swimming or perhaps hiking or rock climbing. We all like different things which is why it is rather appealing to try them, especially on holiday.
All activities should be provided in a safe manner with appropriate training provided when necessary. These measures alone will help reduce the number of sports injuries on holiday that occur every year. It is worth pointing out that lots of people take part in sports without any problems at all. This may well be the case for you too.
What might happen if something goes wrong?
We all know things can go wrong and create problems for us. Equipment may not be fit for purpose, training may not be provided and complete information on the activity involved may not be accurate, to give us an idea of what to expect. While cases like this are rare, they can potentially occur.
Accident Advice Helpline can often help if the holiday was provided as a package from a tour operator. The key is to get in touch so we can assess what happened and determine whether there is evidence of negligence present.
Suffering from injuries on holiday
Wherever you go on holiday it can be devastating to suffer one or more injuries while you are there. Sports injuries on holiday could ruin the rest of your break. You might find you have issues in trying to cope with the pain or manage to get out and about for the remainder of your holiday. In addition you might end up having to navigate a foreign hospital if you need to seek treatment of some kind.
