There is nothing better than a holiday, whether an action packed weekend for two weeks or lazing in the sun, we all enjoy a change of scenery and a break from everyday life. Most of us work hard all year so that we can enjoy one or two annual holidays and it is a luxury we really appreciate. We spend weeks planning the big event, counting down the days and packing the holiday essentials. So when the holiday finally arrives you want to be perfect or at least as stress free as possible. But what happens when that is not the case?
What happens if your holiday does not go according to plan but instead goes horribly wrong leaving you the victim of an accident that was not your fault? If this nightmare is a familiar one then you need to contact an accident lawyer in Shipley or an expert from Accident Advice Helpline. We can help you start an accident injury compensation claim and get you cash compensation for your injuries, damages and expenses.
Do you need an accident lawyer in Shipley?
All successful holiday accident compensation claims are made when the injury or illness suffered is not your fault but the fault of another person or organisation. If you have had an accident, then it is important to make sure you get a photo of anything important, like a defective step or loose paving stone. If you have a car accident, be sure to get the details of anyone else involved including the details of any witnesses. If you have been ill, please make sure you keep any medical reports and keep a record of any attention you have received
If your holiday accident happened on private property, try and find out who owns it and who is responsible for maintaining it. If you get food poisoning after eating in a hotel restaurant where you are staying, you may be able to make a claim. The same is true if you fall ill after eating food from a shop, as the shop owner and food manufacturer have a duty to ensure that this does not happen. In all cases, what is most important of all is that you seek immediate medical attention. Even if your injuries do not seem serious to you, they might be, particularly if you have sustained an injury to your head.
