There are many camp sites situated throughout the UK and beyond. It seems that an increasing number of families are enjoying camping holidays while groups of friends and couples also go on such trips. In most cases, these camping trips will go off without a hitch, and everyone will have a fun and memorable time. However, there are instances whereby accidents occur, which can lead to compensation claims being made. But first, read on to discover how a camping accident could occur.
How a camping accident could occur
There are many different types of camping incidents that can take place. For example, you may have been electrocuted by the power supply at the site when plugging an appliance in, such as your phone charger or hair dryer. You could have tripped over a pothole that was not indicated. Or, perhaps one of your children were injured when using the camp site playground because it had not been looked after properly.
As you can see, the scenarios vary considerably, and when it comes to making a claim, it is not about the type of incident that has occurred. Rather, it is about who caused the incident. You need to be able to prove that someone else is responsible for the accident.
