  1. Why Did the Accident Happen?

To be awarded compensation you’ll need to prove that your organizer – or their representatives at the resort , for example the local hotel staff , were negligent.

For example, your hotel didn’t warn of wet floors while mopping the floors and this caused you to fall and break your wrist. In these circumstances your organizer will usually be held responsible for your accident.

If your accident was your fault you won’t be able to claim any compensation for a personal injury claim. For example if you broke the safety rules while using the hotel pool and had an accident.

  1. Report the Accident

  • You should report the accident as soon as possible to your package organizer’s representative on or off the premises (e.g head office) and the hotel management.
  • Ensure you record the accident in any available accident book and ask for a copy of the entry.
  • If you have travel insurance you should contact the insurance company as soon as possible they will be able to advise you on the medical and legal situation.
  1. Keep a Record

Seek medical attention immediately. Even if you feel your injury is not so severe at that moment. If you neglect medical help it might affect any claim for compensation you make when you return home.
Ask your medical practitioner for a copy of your medical report and keep receipts of any medical charges.
