When we go on holiday we expect a week of relaxation and fun away from normal life. Although most people go on holiday and have no problems, sometimes the holiday we have planned for ourselves just doesn’t turn out that way. When we go on holiday a mistake we can often make is that the hotel or apartment we are staying in is constructed safely and that the patio or balcony doors are constructed using toughened or safety glass.
Every year many holiday makers suffer horrific injuries caused by the glass in their patio or balcony door shattering and most often it is young children who are injured. Our team at Scot Accident Claims can help you today.
Scot Accident Claims Is Regarded At Scotland’s Leading Personal Injury Firm.
Our team of highly trained personal injury solicitors can lead you through the claims process.
Different countries have different building regulations as well as health and safety standards. These standards will undoubtedly be different from our own standards in the UK. However, if it can be proved that the balcony or patio doors did not comply with these health and safety standards as well as building regulations then it may be possible to pursue your case.
While on a package holiday your tour operator is responsible for your health and safety. The law which protects you in the Package Travel Regulations 1992. If under this legislation the tour operator has failed to keep you safe and then they will be liable to pay you compensation for your injuries.
Our Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help You Make A Claim And Get The Compensation You Deserve.
As well as claiming for the injuries you sustained from the glass accident, you may also be able to claim for loss of earnings, any medical expenses you paid while receiving treatment, care and assistance and various other expenses.
The success of your claim, wholly depends on the circumstances of the incident. Your solicitor will talk you through this.
The amount of compensation you may be entitled to again wholly depends on the circumstances of your injuries. The seriousness of your injuries and any losses you may have incurred as a result of the fall.
While on holiday in the bright sunlight it is sometimes difficult to tell whether the balcony door is open or not, every time you are about to step outside check and make sure the door is open. Some patio or balcony doors will have stickers on them so it will be easier to tell if they are open or not.
Do not open the glass door by pressing on the glass, if you push too hard the glass may become loose or come out completely.
Do not leave children unattended running around near a glass door or let them play with a glass door by opening or closing it in case it does shatter.
