Claiming for a holiday illness or an accident abroad
An accident or illness abroad can be an unpleasant and distressing experience. You may have been affected by food poisoning, a trip or slip or other injury in a hotel or on an aeroplane.
If you were injured while on a package holiday where a tour operator arranged your travel, accommodation or activities, you may be able to make a holiday accident claim against the tour operator in the UK via the Package Travel, Package Holiday and Package Tours Regulations 1992.
If you were not on a package holiday, you may still be able to claim directly against the provider of the travel, accommodation or activities that caused your injuries. These type of claims are more complex but there are legal options available to you, so it is always worth seeking advice from a specialist personal injury solicitor.
You may be able to make a holiday accident claim for all types of injuries, including:
- Accidents in a hotel, public place or when travelling – e.g. on a plane or cruise
- Animal attacks
- Food poisoning
- Road traffic accidents
- Sports injuries
