    Types of accidents that could occur whilst on holiday


    Being away on holiday can turn in to a nightmare if you have an accident. The types of accidents that could occur whilst on holiday are common injuries, and you’ll have to face a journey home while injured. If your accident was not your fault, Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim compensation.

    How you could be injured

    Hotels should always mop up any spillages and ensure that all carpeting is secure and not worn. This can prevent some nasty trips or slips.

    If you have a hotel with a balcony, the balcony should be secure and have a railing at the top, which is firmly fixed. If it is not secure or crumbling, you could fall and suffer a very nasty injury indeed.

    The sea is a popular holiday destination, with tourists taking sea trips and participating in water sports. If you hire a jet ski and are not given the right training, or are given a faulty ski, you could be injured in the water.

    Boat trips and ferries mean lots of water around. Boats should always have a safety guard in place to prevent you from falling over the side, and floors should have a non-slip covering to prevent you from slipping.

    Holidays mean eating out and if you’re not careful, a bout of food poisoning.
