    Top 5 dangers of holiday parks

    More Brits than ever before are holidaying in the UK, and holiday parks are seeing a bit of a revival. They’re a great, affordable way to take the whole family on holiday and ensure that kids of all ages are kept amused. The last thing anyone thinks about when going to a holiday park is their personal safety. So what are some of the top dangers of holiday parks?

    Minor to serious injuries

    1. Activity-related injuries. You or a member of your family could be injured whilst taking part in activities at a holiday park – for example, you could be injured by faulty equipment during an archery lesson, or children could be injured whilst taking part in activities that are not properly supervised.
    2. Electric shock. You could suffer an electric shock from faulty electrical outlets or devices (such as a hair dryer) in your accommodation, which could mean you need medical treatment.
    3. Injured by objects falling from height. If building work is taking place at your holiday park, you could be injured if objects such as tools fall from height from scaffolding and hit you. This could lead to shoulder, back, spinal or head injuries that could be life changing; for example, a brain injury.
    4. Pool injuries. There have been cases of people diving into pools and being injured when they didn’t realise how shallow it was, or of children being injured in pools due to a lack of supervision/no lifeguard.
    5. Slip, trip or fall injuries. You could trip on damaged paving stones at a holiday park, slip by the pool or on wet floor in public areas or fall from height, for example off a balcony if the railing are broken. These types of injuries can range from minor (cuts and bruises) to serious (broken bones, facial and head injuries).

    Who’s to blame for your holiday park accident?

    Many of the dangers of holiday parks can be avoided if proper precautions are taken by holiday park management. It’s their job to ensure that anybody staying at the park is safe. So if you or a member of your family have been injured, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation.
