When can I claim for a holiday accident?
To make a personal injury claim for an accident you have had on holiday, the following criteria should apply:
- Your accident occurred while you were abroad.
- The accident happened in the last three years.
- The injury you suffered while abroad led to your having to seek urgent medical attention.
- The accident abroad was not your own fault.
If you have been injured on holiday you’ll want to do the same things as you would at home such as taking down contact details of any witnesses, taking photographs of the situation in which you’ve been injured and keep hold of any medical records.
If you injured yourself within your hotel/ accommodation of the facilities of it then you must report your accident to the management of the hotel/ complex and ensure it is recorded within the accident book, this way there’s proof that your accident happened and it will encourage the management to make amends to ensure no one else gets injured in the same way.
