Injured on holiday? – Talk to a leading no win no fee* Edinbane injury claim lawyer at Accident Advice Helpline
If you stay in self-catering accommodation on holiday and you pick up an injury through no fault of your own, you may need the services of a ‘no win, no fee*’ Edinbane injury claim solicitor at Accident Advice Helpline. It all depends on the circumstances, the most important of which is that the blame for the accident/incident that caused the injury, must be attributable to a third party.
Support your claim with medical proof, photographs and witness statements
The essential things to bear in mind if you do want to consider asking AAH to raise a personal injury claim on your behalf, are that you will need medical proof of the injury, plus as much proof of the cause of the accident as you can gather. Photographic evidence is always a great help, and if there are any witnesses around who can back your story up, make a careful note of their contact details so we can get in touch with them to obtain witness statements.
Adding scale to photos
One tip if you are taking photographs of the accident scene; like a close-up of a raised parquet floor tile or something, is to include an object in the photo that can be used to indicate the scale of things. A ruler or tape measure is perfect.
The property owner’s duty of care
The owner of any property that is let out to holidaymakers has a duty of care to ensure that the property is well maintained, that the electrical wiring is sound, that there are no gas leaks, and that all of the electrical devices are properly wired.
Fire Safety is another important part of any property owner’s duty of care. They must ensure that their premises comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 document, which was published in October 2006B
