Accidents while on holiday in the UK
If you have an accident while on holiday in the UK (perhaps near Jervaulx Abbey, which is why you were looking for an accident solicitor in Jervaulx), then you may be able to claim personal injury compensation. Accidents and illnesses such as food poisoning which can occur on a holiday can be attributable to another person’s negligence in some instances. If your accident or illness was caused by another person’s negligence, then you might have grounds to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Let’s take a few examples of accidents. The most common accident is a slip, trip or fall, which could result in a broken limb. If you slip or trip because a step has not been clearly marked as a hazard, you could have grounds for a compensation claim. If you catch the toe of your shoe in a threadbare patch of carpet, or fall on a rug which slipped on a highly polished floor, then you might have grounds for making a personal compensation claim.
You may get food poisoning after eating out or from meat products you have bought. You need to seek medical attention for an illness, and for any injury resulting from an accident for a compensation claim to be successful, as medical records will be needed. You should talk to an accident solicitor in Jervaulx, or one based elsewhere soon after an illness as you will need the wrapper any meat product was in for analysis, or the receipt from the restaurant you ate in so that investigations can be carried out by environmental health staff in order to prevent further outbreaks of food poisoning.
