If you have an accident on holiday which you feel was the fault of another person, you can still make Abergavenny compensation claims when you get home, as long as you have done all of the things that you need to do whilst you are still there to help you to prove your case later.
An accident on holiday can ruin the break that you have spent so much money on, letting you down both emotionally and financially and making a compensation claim can help you to either book another trip to make up for it, or at the very least compensate you for what you have spent on your break. Here are some of the things to do after an accident on holiday to help you to make a claim.
Report your accident and get Abergavenny compensation
Whether you report the accident to the police, to the holiday organiser or to your hotel, make sure that there is an official record of your accident somewhere, which you can take a copy of for your records and to help you to make a compensation claim later. When you do report your accident, put it in writing and keep a copy of it, as well as a copy of any response.
All hotels, bed and breakfast accommodation or anywhere else you may stay in the UK, has a legal duty to ensure your safety while you are on there premises. If they fail in this duty and you are injured in an accident that was not your fault, they are liable to settle your compensation claim.
Take photographs of the scene and your injuries. Ask witnesses for statements and for their personal details so that they can be contacted later. Make sure that you see a doctor as soon as possible and get a copy of the medical assessment of your injuries. All of these things will be vital forms of evidence when you come to make your compensation claim against the person to blame for your accident.
