    Package holiday injury claims

    We all look forward to that long awaited holiday by the sea but sometimes a holiday may be tarnished due to an accident that has occurred.

    Types of holiday injury claims

    • A fall at the hotel due to a slippery surface

    • Trip due to an inadequate walkway in the hotel grounds

    • Slipped over by the side of the swimming pool

    • Contracted an illness from being in the pool

    If you have been injured and your holiday was booked as a ‘package holiday’, you may be able to claim compensation against the tour operator in the UK. If you are unsure whether your holiday was booked as a ‘package’ we can advise you on this point – we would need to have sight of the holiday booking documentation.

    In order to succeed with the compensation claim, you would of course need to establish that the accident was the fault of the travel company, holiday provider or their representative. Our accident abroad solicitors would be able to advise you on this and guide you through the entire claims process.

    Therefore if you have been injured as a result of an accident on a package holiday please get in touch and we will be more than happy to advise you on your potential claim, call us on 0203 816 0065 or complete our enquiry form and a member of the team will contact you.

    Injured on vacation whilst visiting the UK

    Many foreign tourists vacation in the UK every year and will no doubt visit parts of England and Wales as the countries have lots to offer.

    It may be that during your vacation you have been involved in an accident, whether it be a road collision or a slip or trip in a public place. If you have sustained a personal injury as a result and you can prove that the accident has been caused by the negligence of a third party residing in England and Wales then you may have a claim.

    The fact that you reside in a different country does not need to prevent you from utilising our services as if, for example you reside in the USA or perhaps Canada, we would be able to communicate via telephone and email to ease the process.

    If you believe you may have a claim, please do not hesitate to us on 0203 816 0065 and we will be more than happy to assist.

    Accident abroad case study

    Our client booked a package holiday with the defendant and, whilst on holiday, she slipped on a wet floor in the hotel and fractured her right arm. Our client was unable to work for a month, was unable to take part in her usual hobbies and her holiday was significantly affected. Liability was firmly denied and both parties were forced to obtain liability reports confirming the relevant local standards in Spain. The case settled on the evening prior to the trial which was due to take place the following day.
