Claim for accidents abroad with Your Holiday Claims

When travelling abroad none of us expect our holiday to be ruined by an accident. Yet figures show that on average, 10 British holidaymakers per day are hospitalised following an accident abroad such as:

Slips, trips and falls

Some of the most common causes of accidents abroad within package holiday hotels are slips, trips and falls.

If you have suffered injuries caused by a slip or fall around the hotel grounds, by the pool or on entering a restaurant, you could be entitled to bring a claim for compensation against your tour operator right here in the UK.

At Your Holiday Claims, we would always recommend taking photos of the area where you fell as this could be used to support your claim in the future. You can read more about what you need to bring an injury claim by clicking here.

Balcony fall accidents

Balconies can be incredibly dangerous and are responsible for a large number of accidents suffered by Britains on holiday.

Accidents can be caused by defective railings or inadequate guards and can lead to suffering serious injuries.

Road traffic accidents

If you have suffered a road traffic accident abroad on any transport organised by your tour operator, Your Holiday Claims can help you make a claim for compensation in the UK.

If the accident is caused during an airport transfer or during travel to or from an excursion, your tour may be liable.

By speaking to the expert holiday accident claim solicitors at Your Holiday Claims, you can quickly discover whether you are entitled to bring a no win no fee claim for compensation.

Accidents on board aircrafts

British holidaymakers are entitled to bring a claim for compensation for accidents suffered on board an aircraft or whilst embarking or disembarking the plane.

We are very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were not offered anything from the tour operator we had booked our holiday with.
