If you were involved in an accident within the last three years which was someone else’s fault and which resulted in you sustaining an injury, you could be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation. With the help of an injury lawyer in Colvend that we work in partnership with, Accident Advice Helpline can help you to make your claim.
Were you injured on holiday?
You save up all year for the week or two in the sun, and you spend so long looking forward to it. The last thing you want is to be involved in an accident or be injured but unfortunately, that’s life. Accidents can and do happen anywhere, including when you’re abroad on vacation.
If the accident happened in the hotel you were staying in, you should immediately let the hotel management know, and ask them to log it in the accident book. You should also get a copy of this for later.
If you were on a package holiday, you should also contact the head office of the package organiser right away. There are special regulations to protect you on holiday and they differ depending on whether you booked your flights, accommodation and services separately, you were an independent traveller or you booked a package. Either way, you are protected by consumer law.
Injury lawyer in Colvend
If you were on a package holiday and you were injured in your hotel, on an excursion or using a holiday service, you are entitled to make a claim against not only those who ran the service, but also against your tour organiser. You need to be able to prove negligence, which means that you are able to show that the organiser was aware of a danger but you weren’t warned.
This could, for example, be that the tour organiser was aware of a particular danger on an excursion but you weren’t made aware of this, and you were injured as a result.
In order to make a claim, you should get in touch with an injury lawyer in Colvend when you return home.

Your lawyer will ask for evidence that the other party was at fault. As long as you can prove that you were not responsible, you might be eligible to be compensated for any emotional or physical pain and suffering you’ve experienced, as well as costs incurred such as loss of earnings. Since you were on holiday when the accident happened, you could also claim for loss of enjoyment.
