Germany is a delightful country to visit with many cities offering unique sights and experiences for those who want to make the most of their trip. From Berlin and Frankfurt to Cologne and Heidelberg, there are plenty of places to choose from when it comes to planning a holiday or short break there.
Accidents can happen on holiday in Germany
While most people enjoy trips to Germany that pass without incident and are warmly remembered, others are not so lucky. As is the case wherever you go, there is always the chance that an accident could occur. You would hope no one else is the cause of such an accident but every week someone will suffer an injury that is caused by someone else.
Sometimes these can be caused by a slip or trip that should not have happened. Tour companies have a duty to make sure they offer a safe experience for their customers. If they shirk this duty in any way it may prove to be the catalyst that leads to a compensation claim being made.
Who was responsible?
The key to finding out whether you could make a compensation claim is to ascertain whether the incident or accident was due to the fault of someone else. This could be down to something they did or didn’t do.
For instance if someone mops a floor to clean it and they leave it wet, they should put warning signs in place to indicate this. If they don’t do so and you fell over as a result, this would be their fault. Similarly if the restaurant employees at your hotel decide to serve food that has not been properly stored, even though they know they shouldn’t, they could cause a case of food poisoning. This would also be their fault as they did something they should not have done.
