Holiday Accident Claims

Were You Injured In An Accident Abroad? You May Be Able To Make a Claim

As more people travel abroad, inevitably the number suffering serious injury or illness increases. Tour operators are under a duty to ensure that their customers' accommodation is safe and hygienic, and that they are not exposed to the risk of injury, disease, or infection. Regretfully, many do suffer injury while on holiday.

When you book a package holiday through a UK tour operator, your trip is covered by The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tour Regulations 1992, meaning your holiday is protected by British legislation. The regulations cover things like the transport, accommodation and injuries such as slips, trips and falls, food poisoning, and even flight delays. It is even possible to claim for flight delay compensation. If you have suffered any of these mishaps you may be entitled to compensation through pursuing a holiday accident claim. Search our qualified Solicitor database to find the right Solicitor to help you with your claim.

Compensation claim calculators are a useful starting point to pursuing personal injury cases as they provide an estimate of the levels of compensation a claimant can expect to receive for their injuries.

Our compensation calculator serves as only as a rough guideline figure of the amount you might be able to claim. It is not designed to give you an output of the exact sum because this will depend upon the severity of your inquiry, the time it takes to recover and negotiations between your specialist solicitor and the party responsible for your accident.
