The United States is a great place to head to for the holiday of a lifetime. You might be surprised how long you could happily spend in the country, exploring many different states without any desire to head back home! Whether you spend a week or two in the country or much longer, you certainly have lots to look forward to.
From big cities such as New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Houston, to major sights such as the Grand Canyon, Walt Disney World, Times Square and the Golden Gate Bridge, you won’t run out of amazing experiences to enjoy.
Accidents do happen on holiday in the United States
With all this talk of great times in the US it might seem odd to switch the conversation over to accidents. It’s unfortunate but it is also a fact of life that some people on dream holidays to America will end up with a nightmare accident or illness while they are there. On some occasions this will be due to the negligence of the company who arranged the holiday – and in this case there is the question of compensation to be focused on.
There are many accidents that can easily occur if due care and attention isn’t taken. For example if walkways are not properly maintained in the hotel you are staying in, you could slip, trip or fall. You may also have an accident in the bathroom if the tiles are not maintained or are cracked and you trip on them. If you fell over while getting off your tour bus when being transferred from the airport to your hotel you might also have cause to claim. As you can see, there are many instances in which the tour operator might be lax in providing an exceptional service. If this is the case it is worth finding out whether you could bring a case against them for compensation.
