With bad weather affecting much of the United Kingdom, many people are looking around for spring holidays and mini-breaks. With some airlines still offering cheap flights, many people are tempted by the opportunity to get some winter sun while bad weather still plagues the UK.
However, whilst the majority of people will travel abroad without any problems, every year a significant number of people become ill or suffer injuries whilst travelling or whilst on holiday. Although some people will be hurt during their holiday, some people may find that they don’t even make it out of the country before being injured.
Although all forms of transport are highly regulated and subject to numerous safety checks, there are risks associated with travelling. If, for example, you’re travelling by train or bus, you could be involved in a collision or road traffic accident. Similarly, a problem with an aeroplane whilst travelling could result in a bumpy landing or an interrupted flight.
Need a personal injury lawyer in Ashley Heath?
When you’re hurt whilst travelling, various people could be responsible. If the fault lies with the travel company or operators, a personal injury lawyer in Ashley Heath could help you to pursue them for compensation.
However, if you’re involved in a road traffic accident whilst using public transport, you may need to pursue the other driver, with help from a personal injury lawyer at Accident Advice Helpline, if the travel company weren’t at fault.
Alternatively, you may simply suffer an injury because of another passenger. If, for example, another passenger drops luggage on you or causes you to trip or fall and you suffer injuries, they could be liable for the harm you’ve suffered and a personal injury lawyer at Accident Advice Helpline could help you obtain compensation from them.
