    Injured on holiday in United Arab Emirates?


    The UAE has become a popular spot for tourists in recent years and whether you head for Dubai, Abu Dhabi (the capital city) or Sharjah, you’re sure to have a great holiday. Take a hop-on, hop-off tour of Abu Dhabi’s sights such as the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque or enjoy a 4 x 4 desert safari. Dubai is one of the world’s most popular destinations these days and it’s filled with skyscrapers – Downtown Dubai is home to the Burj Khalifa (the world’s tallest building) and the Dubai Mall (the largest in the world). The beaches here are spectacular and the Gold Souk is the perfect place to purchase gold jewellery at competitive prices. Sharjah is a less popular destination yet has plenty of attractions – Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization is worth a visit and the Souq-al-Arsah (the oldest souq in the country) is great for shopping.

    Accidents in the UAE

    If you are injured whilst on holiday in United Arab Emirates, you might be wondering if you are eligible to claim for compensation. There are many different types of accidents which could occur whilst on holiday. One of the most commonly reported accidents is a slip or trip – for example, you could slip on a wet floor at your hotel or trip over loose paving in the grounds of your accommodation. Other types of accidents include claims for food poisoning after eating in the hotel restaurant, injuries sustained on an inclusive excursion and accidents involving a fall from height, for example from a faulty balcony.

    How to claim for compensation

    Provided you booked your package holiday through a UK travel agent, you are protected by the 1992 Package Travel Regulations. Under these regulations, your tour operator and staff at your hotel have a duty of care to provide you with a safe service during your holiday. This means providing you with a hygienic environment and room, risk assessing planned excursions and ensuring that the resort or hotel is safe. If you feel that this hasn’t happened, you could be eligible to claim for compensation.
