    Injured on holiday in Poland?


    Poland is a country filled with history and culture – it’s the perfect place to enjoy an adventurous break or family holiday. The capital, Warsaw, is filled with things to see and do.

    Head for the Old Town Market Square where you can take a tour of the city in a ‘droshky’ (horse-drawn cart) or enjoy shopping on Nowy Swiat, one of the city’s busiest shopping streets. Also worth visiting is Krakow, one of Poland’s most ancient cities.

    Take a day trip to Auschwitz Memorial and Museum; you’ll need at least 3 hours to see everything here, or head for the Royal Castle, which dates back to 1000. You could even sample some local ‘Oscypek’, Polish sheep cheese.

    Accidents can happen on holiday in Poland

    No matter how careful you are, accidents can happen on holiday in Poland. From minor ailments to serious, life-threatening injuries, if you have been injured due to somebody else’s negligence, you may be considering making a claim for compensation. Here are just a few examples of the types of injury which could be sustained during your holiday:

    • Food poisoning – this is more common than you might think and could happen after dining at your hotel restaurant or buffet
    • Slips, trips or falls at your hotel or when alighting hotel transport
    • Illness caused by dirty, unhygienic hotel rooms
    • Injured whilst taking part in sports (as part of an inclusive excursion)
    • Falling from height – for example, from an unsafe balcony

    If you have been injured, a personal injury lawyer will be able to help you establish who is to blame for your accident.

    Who is at fault?

    If you’ve booked a package holiday with a UK travel agent, you’re protected by the 1992 Package Travel regulations. Tour operators, hotel staff and excursion staff have a duty of care to provide you with a safe service; this means they must take the necessary steps to ensure that you are safe during your holiday.

    If they have failed to do this and you have been injured or become ill as a result, you could be eligible to claim for compensation.
