If you have had an accident on a package tour and it was not your fault then you may be able to claim compensation from the tour operator or travel agent through which the holiday was booked. StonehewerMoss are a personal injury solicitor based in Cheshire so we specialise in managing accident compensation claims and we can often assist on a ‘no win no fee basis’.
About Compensation from Tour Operators
The Package Travel Regulations were introduced in 1992 to help protect people when booking tours through travel agents and tour operators in the UK. These regulations allow an injured holidaymaker to pursue a compensation claim against a tour operator in the UK courts. You can claim compensation for your package tour accident if the accident or illness is caused because the tour operator or its agent fails to properly perform the package holiday contract. If local safety standards are not complied with and this failure causes you to have an accident then you should be able to claim.
How to Claim Compensation from Tour Operators
If you have an accident on a holiday tour abroad it can be confusing with language difficulties, and unfamiliar legal or medical systems. If your accident was the result of someone else’s negligence then you may be able to claim compensation just the same as if the accident was in the UK.
- Report the accident to your travel representative
- Be sure the accident is recorded in the accident book
- Save any receipts or records of expenses related to the incident
- To make a claim you will need to prove the accident was not your fault so collect any evidence including photographs that may help.
