If this is the case, you have two or three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim.

Expert injury lawyers in Minehead
It is also possible that you are seeking the services of a firm of expert injury lawyers Minehead, for example, because you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. You have three years in which to make a personal injury compensation claim in this case.
If you are on holiday in the British Isles and have an accident or illness such as described above, then you can make a personal injury compensation claim without any trouble. However, if you are injured in an accident or have an illness (perhaps food poisoning or Legionnaire’s disease) while on holiday abroad, you may have problems making a claim unless you booked a package holiday with a UK tour operator.
If you have an accident and are injured in the hotel or its grounds, and you can prove that negligence on the part of the owner or a member of staff was to blame, then you may be able to file a personal injury claim compensation claim against the UK tour operator on your return.
The hotel owner, the staff and your holiday representative are the representatives of the UK tour operator, so if they are negligent in their duties and you can prove this, you may have a case for claiming damages.
If you have food poisoning after eating at the hotel, you could also make a claim against the UK tour operator as you and the other guests (food poisoning is rarely the problem of one person) could make a joint claim not only for the pain, distress and suffering caused, but also for a ruined, or partially ruined holiday.
