    Injury Claim in Greater Manchester


    When you are booking your holidays, your thoughts are of having fun and relaxing and taking a break from the daily treadmill of life. The last thing on your mind is being injured in an accident that was not your fault and having to make a personal injury claim in Greater Manchester. 

    But every year, holidaymakers are injured in accidents while they are vacating, some in the UK and some abroad. This results injuries of all sorts and many ruined holidays.

    Making a personal injury claim in Greater Manchester for an accident on holiday in the UK

    If your holiday is in the UK and you have an accident while away, if the accident was not your fault and you had to see medical treatment you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim in Greater Manchester.

    It would depend on what type of accident you had as to who you make the claim against, it could be:

    • A coach company if you are in a road traffic accident while getting to or from your destination, or out on a day trip.
    • It could be your hotel if the accident happens within their premises.
    • The holiday camp could be liable if the accident is on their property.
    • A local restaurant could be the one you claim against if it is their food that makes you ill with food poisoning.
    • A local shop if you have an accident in the premises.
    • The local council if you have an accident because of something they should have repaired, such as the pavements or potholes in the road.
    • The car hire company if the car you hire has a defect that causes an accident.

    All of these, and any other accident you have while on holiday in the UK, come under the normal rules for making a claim, which say:

    Making a personal injury claim in Greater Manchester for an accident on holiday abroad

    These are slightly different in that a lot depends on how the holiday was booked as to whether you are entitled to claim compensation for your injuries. For instance, if you made all the bookings yourself, at least two elements of it, say your hotel and flights have to have been booked through a UK company.

    If your holiday is a cruise, it depends where the cruise where the cruise started, what ports it stopped at and where it finished as to what set of rules a claim comes under. There is more than one, and it is important the right rules are used.
