Getting compensation with expert holiday accident advice
If your holiday was within the United Kingdom, your holiday accident injury claim could be dealt with in the same way as any other personal injury compensation claim. Meaning you are well within your rights to proceed with making a claim for an accident today; however, if you were abroad at the time, certain other rules apply.
A personal injury solicitor in the United Kingdom would only be able to deal with a personal injury compensation claim against a holiday company for an accident, injury or illness which occurred abroad if the holiday was booked as part of a package deal through a travel agent in the United Kingdom. In addition to this, your holiday accident, holiday injury or holiday illness would need to be the fault of the travel agent or their representatives such as the hotel staff.
If your holiday accident or holiday injury was caused due to a badly retained section of walkway in the hotel grounds you would be entitled to make a holiday injury compensation claim against your travel agent. To make a successful holiday injury compensation claim for an accident today, you would need to prove that another person was responsible for your personal injury (in this case, the travel agent or their representative such as the hotel staff).
