Holiday Accident Compensation

Every year millions of us head abroad for our summer holidays. We look forward to a few weeks of relaxation and fun with our friends and family but unfortunately not everyone’s holiday will pass peacefully. While you’re on holiday it is your tour operator’s duty to make sure that you are safe, it is their duty to make sure that the accommodation you have booked as well as any transfers to trips are safe for you. If they have failed in this duty then you may be able to claim compensation for your injury.

There are many accidents that can happen abroad that you can claim for. You can claim for slips, trips and fall accidents to food poisoning or becoming ill if the swimming pool is not treated properly. Our expert lawyers will be able to advise you on the individual circumstances of your claim.
