Skegness in Lincolnshire was where the first Butlin’s holiday camp was opened in 1936. Its name, virtually since then, has been synonymous with the term, seaside resort. However, since the advent of the cheap foreign package holiday, Skegness is not as popular as it once was, as tourists flock to resorts which can almost certainly guarantee sun and warmth. You may be able to find a firm, or indeed, several firms of injury solicitors in Skegness if you need them, but if you have any problems in tracking down an expert injury solicitor in the area of law you require in order to file a personal injury compensation claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
Why might I require injury solicitors in Skegness?
You may need the services of injury solicitors in Skegness, or others based anywhere else in the country, if you have been injured in an accident which you can prove, with their help, was not your fault.
You might also require the services of injury solicitors in Skegness, if you have been told by your doctor that you have (or have had) an illness or disease which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence.
Illnesses on holiday
If you are ill while on a foreign package holiday you may be entitled to make a claim when you return to the UK if you booked your holiday through a UK tour operator. You might have had food poisoning while on a cruise, or while staying at your foreign hotel. You would not be the only person to suffer from it, so you should talk with fellow-guests, and on your return to Britain, file a joint claim against the tour operator.
Each year, thousands of British holiday-makers return with horror stories of hygiene standards, and it seems that the buffet-style meals served at all-inclusive holiday resorts are one of the main causes of food poisoning. This is because food is typically left out and so bacteria proliferate. Also food is allowed to become tepid and then hot food is added to it, which also makes for a breeding opportunity for bacteria.
While you are at your hotel, the staff and owner are deemed to be representatives of the UK tour operator, which is why you may be entitled to make a claim against the company on your return to the UK. You would not be able to make a claim if you contracted food poisoning after eating at a local restaurant.
