Going on holiday is, for the vast majority of us, the highlight of the year – a glorious week (or two if you’re lucky) away from the daily grind – and most importantly away from the office.
However, sometimes holidays don’t go quite according to plan and you might come back wanting to make a compensation claim in West Calder.
Holidays at Home or Abroad
If you have been injured in an accident whilst on holiday, whether it was at home or abroad, then you might be entitled to make a compensation claim in West Calder.
Holidays within the UK (affectionately known as “staycations”) are becoming increasingly popular as the prices of flights soar. If you have suffered an injury whilst on holiday within the UK then you can make a compensation claim in West Calder in exactly the same way as you would with any other form of personal injury claim.
Things are marginally more complicated if your holiday was abroad, and there are different rules and procedures that need to be followed. If you want to find out more about making a compensation claim in West Calder for a holiday taken abroad then contact one of our advisers today who will be able to give you all the information you need.
What can I make a compensation claim in West Calder for?
When on holiday it is sad to say that you can run the same risks of injury as you can in your “normal” life.
Examples could include:
- Poorly maintained walkways on the site of your holiday (whether this is a caravan park, hotel or resort)
- Food poisoning from one of the onsite restaurants (or room service)
- Accidents on machinery or equipment available for public use
- Slips, trips and falls
The simple fact of the matter is that if you have been injured in an accident, or have suffered illness whilst on holiday which was someone else’s’ fault and could have been prevented if the appropriate steps had been taken, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim in West Calder.
