Speak to an accident solicitor in Hever about your accident on holiday
Blue skies, beach, sunshine, picnics and BBQs – those are the terms we easily identify with summer but sadly every year there are many people who must add the word “accident” to their list of holiday experiences. If you have suffered personal injuries in an accident that occurred while you were on holiday and that accident happened in the last 3 years, you may be entitled to compensation, provided somebody else was responsible for your injuries.
Would my accident on holiday really qualify?
Well, you falling off your board on the beach while trying to learn windsurfing won’t qualify – but you taking off into the waves on a defective board provided by a windsurfing school will certainly qualify. It is the school’s responsibility to ensure all their training and hire equipment is safe for the use it was intended for and if you go out into the sea with a faulty board and that board breaks in half and injures you, the school has put your health and life at risk. You would be entitled to claim compensation.
Accident Advice Helpline
Not every solicitor deals with personal injury claims and even those that do will not be specialists in every type of claim. If you are finding it difficult to locate an accident solicitor in Hever, try Accident Advice Helpline’s Freephone number 0800 689 0500 and speak to a friendly adviser about your case.
Established in 2000, Accident Advice Helpline is a compensation provider and law firm specialising in the highly complex field of personal injury claims. You can visit their website and complete a simple 30-second test that will assess, whether you have a valid claim and will give you a rough estimate, how much compensation you might get, if you win your claim. All their legal partners work on a no win, no fee basis.
Compensation is designed to help victims of non-fault accidents with their recovery. Your injuries and pain should be compensated for, but also the stress you and your family had while trying to get home under such difficult circumstances. You may have had to pay for special ambulance services to take you home or may have needed a carer on your homeward journey for whom you had to pay. In most cases, a settlement can be reached out of court.
Examples of accidents on holiday
- Slips, trips and falls such as tripping on frayed stair carpets in a hotel
- Road traffic accidents
- Accidents on a golf course, where a player should have warned you of their high velocity ball coming your way
- Inadequate training; for example falling off a horse while out pony trekking because your saddle wasn’t fastened, because you had never been shown how to do that correctly and your instructor didn’t bother to check
- Food poisoning from restaurant meals
Don’t suffer in silence. If the accident wasn’t your fault and happened within the last 3 years, call Accident Advice Helpline and they can assign a no win, no fee accident solicitor in Hever or other specialist to your case.
