If you’re injured while on holiday, a relaxing time can suddenly become a very stressful one. If you received treatment for injuries sustained whilst on holiday, you may be able to make a compensation claim. If you were not to blame, talk to Accident Advice Helpline.
It’s so easy to think that injuries we receive don’t feel too bad, so we don’t need to visit a doctor, but any injury should be properly assessed.
Have your injuries assessed
Some injuries actually disguise more serious ones. A bang to the head, for example, might result in a headache. If you don’t visit a doctor, you may find that your injury is a lot more serious than you first imagined.
When you are away from home, you may think that you can’t visit a doctor in that area and you’ll visit your own GP when you get home. Most surgeries will see temporary patients if they are stopping in the area, so you will be able to have your injury checked straight after your accident. It can be useful to follow this up with your own doctor once you’ve returned home.
If you want to claim compensation, you will need to visit a medical practitioner as soon as you can. Being able to provide medical evidence means you can prove that you received treatment for injuries sustained whilst on holiday.
