Accidents on holiday
If you have an accident while in Grouville, you can file an injury claim in Grouville as you can anywhere else in the country. If on the other hand you have had an accident abroad, you can still claim for a personal injury, but it is a little more complicated. You may need the services of a solicitor who has links with that country, or a firm of solicitors who have an office in the country where you have your accident.
If you booked a package holiday from a UK tour operator or travel agent, and if your accident was caused by the negligence of one of their representatives (hotel owner, hotel staff or the holiday representative, then you can make an injury claim against the tour operator. If, however, your accident was in a taxi that you had hailed or called, you would have to make the claim in the country where you were injured.
Suppose you were walking in the grounds of your hotel and tripped and fell over some gardening equipment which should not have been on the path; you would have grounds for filing a personal injury compensation claim. If you had food poisoning or Legionnaires’ disease, you would also have grounds for making a claim. If other holidaymakers also had the same problem, then you can make a group claim for compensation from the UK tour operator.
