    Accident Solicitor Thurlestone

    The village of Thurlestone in the south west of Devon is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With its sandy coves, dramatic cliffs and vistas of rolling hills, it is unsurprising that this small village attracts a multitude of tourists throughout the year.

    Whether you are planning to take a holiday in Thurlestone with the aim of relaxing or experiencing the thrill of an adventure, the risks associated with this unfamiliar environment may lead to a holiday accident. While you may assume you will be most at risk of suffering a personal injury while you are outdoors, your holiday accommodation may put you at a greater risk than any of the tourist attractions you choose to visit.

    Common holiday accommodation accidents

    The unfamiliarity of the layout of your holiday accommodation may put you at risk of a range of accidents, including:

    • Slips trips and falls.
    • Electric shocks.
    • Burns and scalds.
    • Illnesses caused by bacteria, viruses or fungi.

    If you have relaxed to the point that you have become unaware of your own surroundings, you will probably suffer accidents of your own accord. However, sometimes the carelessness of the staff at your holiday accommodation can cause you to suffer from injuries and illnesses.

    If the staff fail to carry out checks of your holiday accommodation and you end up falling ill or sustaining an injury, you may be entitled to claim personal injury compensation. While the vast majority of holiday accommodation in Thurlestone is fit for purpose, the quality of the accommodation does differ, depending on the rating and the cost.

    Making a claim for holiday accommodation accidents

    Whether you were staying at a hotel, guesthouse, apartment, youth hostel, campsite or caravan park, you will be able to make a claim for compensation. If you are asked to fill out a short evaluation form at the end of your stay, you must detail the improvements that need to be made to the accommodation. You should then keep a copy of this form for your own records. You may be told that your injury or illness was your own fault. However, if you know otherwise, a 100% no win, no fee accident solicitor in Thurlestone may be able to help you.
