When you are deciding on a holiday there are really two main choices, you either holiday in the UK or abroad.
It could be that you go on a cruise, visit a paradise island, go to a disco resort, or maybe an all-inclusive holiday would suit you. Wherever you are in the world you could be involved in an accident that was not your own fault, like a slip in a public place in Uttlesford, and in some cases you would be able to make a no win no fee* accident claim.
Making an claim for a slip in a public place in Uttlesford
If you are injured while on holiday in the UK, the same rules apply as if you were injured in an accident while at work, in the local shopping centre or anywhere else near to where you live. The only thing that would be different is the people you would make the claim against.
That does not matter though. Accident Advice Helpline operate nationwide, so if you live in Cornwall but holiday in Scotland, we can still help you with your Uttlesford no win no fee* accident claim.
Making a no win no fee* claim for accidents on holiday outside the UK
Making a claim for injuries sustained on holidays outside the UK is less straightforward. If the injuries are sustained in the air or while at sea, the time limit is reduced from the normal specification of three years to two.Open Claim Calculator
If you are on a cruise it depends where the cruise started, what ports it stops at and where it end as to which set of rules it comes under. There is more than one, but the lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline will make sure claim is handled through the correct channels.
Assuming you make it safely to your destination before an accident happens, it then depends on if the injuries are sustained at the hotel you are staying at or out of their premises. How you booked the holiday has a bearing on the matter as well.
If it is booked through a UK-based holiday company, they have a responsibility to make sure their holidays are safe. If you booked each part of your holiday yourself, at least two elements of it have to have been booked through UK companies to be able to make an Uttlesford no win no fee* accident claim.
