At YourHolidayClaims, our expert solicitors are regularly contacted by people seeking to claim damages for a ruined holiday.
Falling ill on holiday or suffering injuries caused by an accident abroad can often result in missing one-off trips and days of relaxation in the sun. This can leave you feeling both frustrated and out of pocket.
Different types of loss on holiday
In our latest article, the expert solicitors at YourHolidayClaims look what you will be entitled to make a claim for if your holiday is disrupted by an illness or accident.
Compensation for General Damages
One of the first things that will be considered to decide the value of your holiday claim is General Damages. This includes pain, suffering and loss of amenity.
For all holiday illness compensation claims, there are guidelines that are followed to decide how much compensation will be awarded.
For example, if you have suffered varying degrees of disabling pain, cramps and diarrhoea continuing for a few days or weeks, you could be entitled to between £770 and £3,300.
In more serious cases where the symptoms require hospital admission and continue have a significant impact on ability to work or enjoyment of life, anywhere between £32,125 and £43,890 in compensation could be awarded.
If your holiday has been ruined by illness abroad, the expert solicitors at YourHolidayClaims can discuss your case with you and provide an estimate on how much compensation you may be entitled to for General Damages.
Lost days of your holiday
In addition to compensation for General Damages, you can also claim for any lost days of your holiday. This means you can receive compensation for the loss of enjoyment of your holiday.
If 5 days of your holiday have been affected by an illness or accident, you will be able to recover the cost of those 5 days.
Out of pocket expenses
By bringing a claim with YourHolidayClaims you can also receive compensation for any out of pocket expense you have incurred during your holiday.
This can include the cost of medication or hospital treatment, any extra travel costs and any money you have lost due to missing pre-booked excursions.
If you were forced to take time off work on your return home in order to recover, you may also be able to claim for a loss of earnings caused by a holiday illness or accident.
