Whilst people enjoy their time away on holiday, travel firms are coming under fire for the rate of injuries and illnesses which are occurring, including food poisoning in Waverley. Although it’s impossible to prevent all accidents from occurring, following the appropriate health and safety guidelines should reduce the number of injuries and illnesses which occur.
Do you need to make personal injury claims after being hurt on holiday?
For example, ensuring that hotels and motels are fitted with the appropriate safety equipment could prevent people getting hurt and could even prevent fatalities from occurring. In some instances, hotels have been criticised for allowing swimming pools to be accessible during the night. Unfortunately, people have accidentally fallen in and suffered injuries or even drowned because the pool wasn’t properly covered or secured.
Similarly, some of the fixtures and fittings at certain resorts haven’t been up to the appropriate standards and people can easily be hurt as a result. Although holidaymakers may be more relaxed and less vigilant than at home, this doesn’t excuse travel firms who don’t follow health and safety regulations.
Claiming for food poisoning in Waverley
With numerous outbreaks of food poisoning and bacterial infections being reported at some resorts, it is clear that there is an on-going problem. When incidents, such as bouts of food poisoning in Waverley occur, it is possible for people to make personal injury claims against the restaurant or hotel responsible.
As numerous people have been affected, it can be relatively easy to determine what caused the poisoning and which company is responsible and people may be able to obtain compensation fairly easily as a result.
If you’ve been hurt or become unwell on holiday it can ruin your whole trip and you may simply want to return home as soon as possible. If you’re well enough to do so, and you can afford to change your travel arrangements, you may simply want to come home and book another trip for later in the year. However, this shouldn’t prevent you from making Waverley personal injury claims and obtaining compensation for the harm that you’ve suffered.
