There is nothing better than a holiday, whether it’s an action-packed weekend away or two weeks of lazing in the sun we all enjoy a change of scenery and a break from everyday life. Most of us work hard all year so that we can enjoy one or two annual holidays and it is a luxury we really appreciate.
We spend weeks planning the big event, counting down the days and packing the holiday essentials. So when the holiday finally arrives you want to be perfect or at least as stress-free as possible. But what happens when that is not the case? What happens if your holiday does not go according to plan but instead goes horribly wrong, leaving you the victim of an accident that was not your own fault? If this nightmare is a familiar one then you may be looking for an injury lawyer in Reigate and Banstead. With a nationwide legal team, Accident Advice Helpline can help. We can help you start an accident injury compensation claim and get you cash compensation for any injuries, damages and expenses that you have faced as the direct result of a holiday accident.
Injury lawyer in Reigate and Banstead
Most successful holiday injury compensation claims are made when the injury or illness suffered is not your fault but the fault of another person or organisation. If you have had an accident, for example a fall, then please make sure you get a photo of anything important, like a defective step or loose paving stone. If you have had a car accident, if at all possible, be sure to get the details of anyone else involved and also the details of any witnesses. If you have been ill, please make sure you keep any medical reports and keep a record of any medical attention you have received
As well as claiming for injuries caused by an accident, you can also claim for holiday illness. For example if you get food poisoning after eating in a hotel restaurant, you may be able to make a claim. The same is true if you fall ill after eating food from a shop, as the shop owner and food manufacturer have a duty to ensure that this does not happen. In all cases, what is most important of all is that you seek immediate medical attention. Even if your injuries do not seem serious to you, they might be, particularly if you have sustained an injury to your head.
