Accident on Holiday Claims

Making a claim for compensation following an accident on holiday or abroad can seem daunting, with different rules, regulations and safety standards to those that we are used to at home. Claiming for an accident abroad can lead to a minefield of legal and jurisdictional problems and time limitations.

Accident on holiday includes:

  • road traffic accidents abroad 
  • accidents on holiday in the UK 
  • accidents on holiday abroad
  • skiing accidents 
  • package holiday claims 
  • accidents in hotels
  • accidents on aeroplanes or at the airport 
  • accidents on ferries, cruise ships or in international waters 
  • food poisoning when on holiday 
  • product liability claims for products manufactured outside of the UK 

Remember – you don’t have to have had an accident abroad for our expert holiday solicitors to help you. We help those that have been injured on holiday here in the UK too.

What can I do?
It is important that you seek advice as quickly as possible from specialist holiday claims solicitors, to discuss whether we can help you with your holiday compensation claim.

If you’ve been on a package holiday with a British company, regardless of where in the world you have been injured on holiday, you may be able to claim for your holiday accident or injury in the British courts. Your British tour operator could be liable for your injury abroad if they made arrangements on your behalf, such as organising local day trips. 

If your package holiday company is not liable for your accident abroad, then we can look at other avenues. Our holiday claims solicitors are members of the Pan European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers (PEOPIL). They work closely with lawyers throughout different countries and can get you the best local advice and help that you will need to deal with your holiday incident.

When you contact us, we will assess your situation and find the best and right way to deal with your holiday claim. However, what you can claim abroad differs from country to country and some holiday compensation claims have a set time limit.

How can claiming for compensation help me? 
Pursuing a claim following an accident will not only ensure that you are properly compensated for your injury, but will also ensure that you are reimbursed for any losses and expenses that you have incurred. This includes any lost earnings of future loss of earnings if your injury means that you have to take time off work or cannot return to work at all, as well as the cost of medical treatment and travelling to appointments. 

Claiming compensation will give you access to the best rehabilitation and treatment providers to maximise your recovery following the accident. The NHS provides excellent care at the acute stage following an injury but long term rehabilitation can be lacking. Making a successful claim for compensation will mean funding is made available for a range of expert input where appropriate. 

Our lawyers will work with you from the outset to make the process as straightforward as possible. We will ensure that you are properly compensated for your injury, as well as for any losses and expenses, including the cost of medical treatment and travelling to appointments. We will also recover any loss of earnings or future loss of earnings if your injury means that you have to take time off work or cannot return to work at all.
