Our holidays offer a few weeks of relaxation, a change of pace, scenery and weather! Many people choose to save all year to afford a fortnight in the sun on an all inclusive basis. This means that they can relax once they arrive at their destination, safe in the knowledge that all expenses have been paid for and organised prior to their departure.
Unfortunately, accidents and incidents can happen even when you are away on your holidays. If you, or some one close to you, have sustained injuries as a result of an accident or incident that wasn’t your fault within the last 3 years whilst on your holiday, then you may be able to make a no win no fee claim in Dorset for personal injury compensation.
What type of accident can I claim for?
Accidents or incidents may include:
- Road traffic accidents
- Food poisoning
- Cycling accidents
- Motorbike accidents
- Water sports accidents
- Winter sports accidents
- Slips, trips and falls
- Pedestrian accidents
- Violent assault
What should I do if I have been injured?
If you have been injured whilst on your holiday, it is important that certain steps are followed to ensure that the correct documentation is available.
- Notify the representative at the hotel of the time, location and details of the accident.
- If they are unavailable, contact the company in the UK or the manager of the hotel.
- Ensure that it is recorded in their Accident Book and a copy is made available for your own records.
- Obtain medical attention and ask for a medical report to be issued to you. You may have to pay for this, so keep a receipt of any costs.
- Ensure that any witnesses to the accident provide their contact details and a record of what occurred.
- Take photographic evidence of the scene.
