Are you claiming Falkirk compensation after a holiday or trip?
Although accidents and injuries can happen at any time, it can be extremely upsetting if you happen to get hurt whilst you’re on holiday or whilst you’re preparing for your trip. If you do suffer an injury and are unable to go on holiday or you have to return home early, you could find that your travel insurance will cover the cost of the trip. However, if you want to obtain Falkirk compensation for your injuries, you may need to make a claim against whoever was responsible for the incident.
As many people now book holidays and mini-breaks online, they can often see photos of the accommodation prior to arranging their trip. Although this can be helpful in choosing somewhere appropriate to stay, the brochure photos don’t always match up to reality.
If you arrive at your destination and you feel that the accommodation isn’t up to the standard that was advertised, or that it is dangerous in any way, you may want to raise this issue with the manager or the management team. If you’ve travelled as part of a package holiday, you may find that your holiday representative is able to deal with issues of this kind.
Although it may be possible to chance your accommodation at the last minute, often you will have to cover the cost of this which isn’t an option for everybody. If you’re forced to remain in accommodation which you consider to be substandard, you may be want to make a note or take a photo or anything you consider to be dangerous.
If you do suffer an injury whilst you’re away and you consider the venue to be at fault, it is possible that you could make a claim for Falkirk compensation against them. Any evidence you have which relates to the incident could be useful, so it’s important to keep any photos or medical records that you have.
Of course, you don’t have to make a claim for your Falkirk compensation whilst you’re still away. In most cases, claimants are able to make a claim for Falkirk compensation within three years of the incident occurring so you should still have plenty of time in which to make your claim once you return from your trip.
