Holiday Accident Claims

We all look forward to going on holiday. However, thousands of holidaymakers suffer accidents, injury and illness abroad each year. Not only can this ruin your holiday; you may have to pay for medical care or additional travel expenses. Your injuries may even be life-changing. There are usually laws to protect and allow you to claim compensation no matter how remote the holiday destination. Our holiday claims solicitors have specialist knowledge of the legal claims process and have successfully won claims against tour and flight operators, independent hoteliers, and foreign insurers. If you or a member of your family have been injured abroad, you may be able to make a holiday accident claim. Talk to us about our No Win No Fee claims service.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I make a compensation claim?

p>If you’re injured because of an accident or illness whilst on holiday, there are a few important things you should do before returning home. It is really important that you gather as much evidence as possible to prove that the accident happened as a result of someone else’s negligence, for example:

  • Photos of where the accident happened
  • Measurements of any holes, cracks etc
  • Contact details of witnesses
  • Details of who owns the property/land
  • Photos of your injuries and the medical treatment you received whilst abroad (and at home)

It’s best to get legal advice as soon as possible after your accident so that we can obtain crucial evidence e.g. CCTV footage as this may be difficult to obtain at a later date. There may also be time limits to your claim.

We offer a Free No-Obligation Case Review so that we can understand more about the accident circumstances and to advise you on whether or not you have a claim.

We will guide and support you throughout the complex personal injury claims process, dealing directly with foreign third parties and their insurance companies on your behalf to secure compensation for your injuries or illness quickly and stress-free.

How much is my claim worth?

The value of every compensation claim for accidents on holiday depends on the seriousness of the injury or illness as well as the chances of you making a full recovery.

In handling your claim, we will seek compensation for pain and suffering as well as recovering costs for medical bills, additional travel expenses and even loss of earnings you may have had as a result of the accident. We will also factor into the value of your claim any long term medical expenses that you may incur for life-changing injuries that require ongoing medical treatment.

We may also be able to obtain interim payments where possible to help you to avoid financial hardship caused by an accident that wasn’t your fault.

Whatever the nature of your injury, our aim is to get you the highest amount of compensation as quickly and stress-free as possible so that you can get your life back on track.

How long do I have to make a holiday accident claim?

For the majority of cases, any claim for accidents on holiday compensation must be made within three years of the date of the accident. There are, however, some exemptions to this rule in instances whereby you may be able to make a claim for an accident dating back further. In other cases, you might be limited to two years if the accident was on a boat or plane, or only one year to make your claim, for example, road traffic accidents in Spain, so it is best to take advice as soon as possible after you return from holiday. As specialist personal injury lawyers, we will be able to advise you on your rights.
