Rosudgeon is a village in Cornwall whose main industry is tourism. If you were there on holiday, you might have been unlucky enough to have an accident and be suffering with a whiplash injury in Rosudgeon even now. You may be lucky and be able to claim for your injury, but then again, the accident may have been entirely your own fault, and so you would not be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim for it.
Can you claim for your whiplash injury in Rosudgeon?
You may be entitled to make a claim for your whiplash injury in Rosudgeon if you can first of all prove both that the accident was not your fault and prove that someone else was to blame for it. To do this you will need a personal injury lawyer.
You should have received medical treatment very soon after the accident as, in order to make a personal injury compensation claim for your whiplash injury in Rosudgeon, you will need to provide a copy of your medical report.
Holiday accidents and illnesses
If you have had an accident while on holiday abroad, and you booked a package tour with a UK tour operator, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim on your return to Britain. If, for example, you slipped on a wet floor in the restaurant area and the danger was not indicated by a hazard warning sign, you might be able to claim for your injury, because the hotel staff had been negligent in their duties.
The hotel owner, the staff and your holiday representative are all agents of the UK tour operator, so any negligence on their parts that caused an injury to you can be claimed for, in theory, from the tour operator. You must be able to prove that the negligence was the cause of your accident and injury and that the accident was not your fault.
If you and your fellow guests have food poisoning (it would be rare indeed if only one person went down with it) after eating at the hotel, you may also be able to make a personal injury compensation claim for your illness when you return to Britain. Unfortunately, every year British holidaymakers suffer from food poisoning because of poor food hygiene standards in some hotels in hot countries. Of course, it can totally spoil your holiday and you can claim compensation for this too.
