Are you aware of how an accident solicitor in Bishop’s Waltham, or one based elsewhere, can help you? If you have been on holiday abroad, or in the UK you might, unfortunately, have had a case of food poisoning or you may have suffered an injury in an accident which was not your fault. It is possible to make a personal injury compensation claim in some instances if you had an accident while on holiday abroad, and wherever you are in the UK, you may have grounds to pursue a compensation claim if you had an accident while on holiday.
If you were on a package tour abroad, booked through a UK travel agent’s then you could have a claim against the agent if you had an accident caused by the negligence of one of the agency’s representatives, a hotel owner, tour representative and so on. If you think you might have grounds for filing a claim, then you should contact an accident solicitor in Bishop’s Waltham, or one close to your home.
Holiday accidents suffered by UK citizens in the UK are governed by the same rules that apply to accidents which occur in your hometown. The accidents may be different, but the rules are the same. If you can prove that the accident was not your fault but caused by the negligence of another person, then you might well have grounds for making a compensation claim.
For example, you may have fallen over a piece of broken paving in the grounds of the hotel you were staying at and broken your arm in an attempt to break your fall. The hotel owner has the responsibility to keep the grounds around the hotel safe and well-maintained. If there is a need for maintenance work or repairs, then there should be clear signs warning of any hazard. If none are in place, and you fall, then you may have grounds to make a personal injury compensation claim.
If you have a bad bout of food poisoning caused by eating at a hotel’s restaurant (or any other establishment) then you may also have grounds for making a personal injury compensation claim.
